Texas Premises Liability Law
If you aren’t familiar with the term, “premises liability” refers to the concept of property owners being responsible (or “liable”) for any harm that befalls their guests. In these situations, the general rule of thumb is simply this: If you were hurt on someone else’s property because the property owner failed to keep their property safe, or if the property owner failed to adequately warn you about an unsafe condition, you can file a claim against them.
In the event that you win your claim, the property owner is required by law to pay you the amount of compensation that has been agreed upon by the parties involved. If, on the other hand, the parties involved can’t agree on a fair amount of compensation, you can take your case to court. An experienced personal injury attorney can guide you through all of these processes.
What Do Premises Liability Cases Cover?
Almost any type of accident that takes place on someone else’s property can become a premises liability claim as long as the cause of the accident can be pointed toward the property owner. Here are just a few examples of legitimate premises liability claims in Texas:
Slips, trips, and falls caused by poorly maintained properties
An animal attack on the property
A fall into something
Something falling on top of you
Injuries caused by a construction defect
Attacks that could have been prevented if the premises had proper security measures in place
Under Texas law, a property owner is financially liable for injuries that occur on their property as long as the injured party can demonstrate that it was the property owner’s negligence that caused the accident.
Possible Compensation Under Premises Liability
One of the most common questions an accident victim is likely to ask is “How much money can I get if I file a premises liability claim?” While this question is more than warranted for your situation, it’s important to understand that no one can give you an exact number without first analyzing your unique case. Depending on the specific circumstances that led up to your injury, the hospital visits that occurred shortly after, and the anticipated future costs associated with your accident, you could be compensated for a great number of expenses, such as:
The medical bills incurred because of your accident
Lost wages you would have earned if you hadn’t been injured
General pain and suffering
Funeral expenses (in the event that your loved one lost their life in a premises liability accident)
Again, every premises liability case is completely unique to the people and circumstances involved. At the Law Office of Frederick K. Wilson II, our job is to help you understand your legal rights and options so that you spend less time fighting with the insurance company and more time focusing on your recovery.
