Dallas Premises Liability Attorneys
What is premises liability?
Property owners and occupiers have a duty to keep their land free of hazardous risks due to design, construction or conditions of their property. These risks include such potential hazards as broken railings, slippery surfaces, icy outdoor stairs and chipped tile. If a visitor to the property is injured due to an unsafe condition that is the result of the owner's negligence, the injured visitor may be able to pursue compensation. According to Texas law, the owner's actions are negligent if he or she knew about the unreasonably unsafe condition and failed to eliminate the unsafe condition or to warn visitors about potential danger. Common types of premises liability cases include:
- Slip and fall injuries
- Inadequate maintenance
- Defective conditions
- Inadequate security
- Attacks from dogs or other animals
Premises liability accidents can occur at private living spaces, commercial buildings or on public property. It may be possible to pursue compensation from homeowners, renters, landlords and business owners if you sustained an injury from an unexpected hazard while using the property normally in an expected, authorized or careful fashion.
