Property owners – whether residential or commercial – have an obligation to ensure the space is safe and free of hazards. Under local, state, and federal laws, property owners must keep their land and buildings safe for authorized visitors at all times. In the event they fall behind on upkeep or fail to take care of any known hazards and someone gets injured on their property, they may be slapped with a premises liability lawsuit. Individuals who have been injured on another person or business’ property may be entitled to recover financial damages to help pay for medical bills and to offset any out-of-pocket expenses or lost wages. 

Premises liability cases can be rather complex, depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident and who was at fault.

Even though landowners, property managers, and business owners have a responsibility to ensure their environment is safe for anyone visiting their premises, every year thousands of people sustain injuries due to dangerous situations. By Texas law, all property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe and secure. They must fix any known hazards on and warn guests of the existence of any issues that may cause injury. When property owners negligently fail to maintain their premises and a visitor is injured due to their laziness, the injured party may be able to pursue a premises liability case.

Premises liability covers a myriad of case types and scenarios. This is important to keep in mind when considering pursuing this type of case, as you want to make sure the attorney you choose is experienced in the specific type of premises liability situation you have on your hands. Some of the most common types of premises liability cases that the attorneys at Green Law Firm have experience with include:

  • Slip and fall cases
  • Staircase accidents
  • Electrocutions
  • Defective sidewalks and other walkways
  • Lack of security
  • Tripping over uneven
  • Accidents on construction sites
  • Structural defects
  • Injuries sustained from animal attacks, such as dog bites
  • Neglect on the part of the property owner
  • Failure to mark or announce potential unsafe conditions
  • Swimming pool injuries
  • Fires and explosions
  • Lead poisoning
  • Exposure to hazardous materials
