Passionately Pursuing Justice for the Injured

Houston Premises Liability Attorney

Know Your Rights After a Property-Related Accident

Under the legal principle of premises liability, a Texas property owner can be held accountable for accidents occurring on their property. In order to succeed in a premises liability lawsuit, however, it is necessary for the victim to prove that the property owner, manager, or other party responsible for the premises at the time of the incident failed to take reasonable precaution to prevent the accident.

While property owners cannot reasonably be expected to protect their tenants, guests, and customers from all possible accidents, the owner can be held liable if he or she knew, or reasonably should have known, about the conditions that caused the accident. It must also be established that they failed to take action to remove the danger or, at the very least, adequately warn their visitors about it.

Were You Injured in a Slip and Fall Accident?

Among the most common scenarios of a premises liability claim is the “slip and fall” accident. If, for example, a shopper slips from a spill on the floor of a grocery store and is injured as a result, he or she may have grounds to sue the store. It would be a defense to the lawsuit that the store management had no knowledge of the spill or that a "Wet Floor" sign had been placed to warn shoppers.

If, however, the store management had learned of the spill but did nothing to handle the problem, or if the spill had been present for long enough that they ought to have known about it, the accident victim may be able to win in a personal injury claim. If your injuries were caused by a similar experience, please contact a Houston personal injury lawyer at the Daspit Law Firm.

Other Types of Premises Liability Claims

Slips, trips, and falls are not the only types of accidents that may serve as grounds to file a premises liability lawsuit. There a number of other dangerous conditions that could result in a property-related accident.

For example, some of the most common types of premises liability claims involve:

  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Swimming pool / drowning accidents
  • Inadequate or negligent security
  • Fires, flooding, and toxic exposure
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Use of defective building materials
  • Staircase and stairwell accidents
