Overview of Premises Liability Law
Premises liability represents an area of personal injury law that requires property owners and managers to be legally liable for on premises accidents that cause injuries to one or more people. Nonetheless, premises liability law does not assume blanket liability, which means premises liability cases in Texas requires personal injury attorneys to prove property owner or manager negligence. Since the premise liability statutes are complicated, we strongly urge anyone that suffered an injury while on someone else’s property to contact Texas licensed personal injury lawyer, Adam Capetillo.
Premises Liability Law in Texas
One of the most important legal arguments for making a case for premises liability claims is to clearly define the reason you were on someone else’s property at the time of an accident that caused one or more injuries. There are three primary classifications that define the reason why you were on another person’s property
Anyone that is invited to someone’s property to conduct business is considered an invitee. A licensee is on another person’s property at the consent of the owner or manager. Licensee do not conduct business while on someone else’s property. As with criminal law, a trespasser does not have permission from the owner or the manager to be on the privately owned property.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
The legal team at Capetillo Law Firm that handles premises liability cases sees a wide variety of cases come across our desks. However, there are four common types of premises liability cases that our team of experienced personal injury attorneys handle.
Domesticated Animal Attacks
This type of premises liability case typically involves a bite or series of bites administered by man’s best friend. Call our law office after suffering from a dog bite while on another person’s property. You might be able to hold the owner or manager of the property accountable for your animal attack injuries.
Slip and Fall Accident
As one of the most common reasons for suffering from personal injuries, slip and falls happened at virtually every type of business and public venue. The accidents also frequently occur on private property where owner or manager diligence is not as focused as it is at a business or public venue. Slip and fall can happen because of a wet, slick, or greasy floor, as well as on newly waxed floors and carpets and rugs that are not properly secured. Whatever the reason, a slip and fall can cause a serious injury, such as one or more broken bones or a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Because of the generally warm climate, Texas is home to tens of thousands of privately owned and maintained swimming pools. Sharp edges, slippery surfaces, and tainted pool water all contribute to the high rate of swimming pool accidents on private property. If you suffered an injury that happened near or in a privately owned swimming pool, you should contact one of our premises liability specialists to schedule a free consultation.
Anyone that invites you to visit his or her property for commercial or non-commercial purposes is legally liable to maintain the property to prevent accidents that cause personal injuries. Private property owners and managers must perform regularly scheduled inspections of private properties to ensure the structural integrity of the premises. They also must look for hazards that increase the risk of an accident occurring.
