Texas Premises Liability Lawyers – Slip & Fall
All Texas property owners and businesses have a duty to provide a safe environment for people on their property. If they fail to do so and someone is injured as a result, they may be held responsible for the injured person's medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
A premises liability case might arise against owners not only of commercial property, but private residences, vacant lots and many other types of properties. A Texas property owner is not automatically responsible for an accident simply because it happened. The property owner or party responsible for maintaining the property may be held legally responsible, or "liable," for that person's injuries, if the injuries were the result of a dangerous condition that existed on the property.
Probably the most common type of premises liability situation is where someone slips or trips and falls due to some defect or hazard on another person's property. A classic example of this is where a shopper in a grocery store falls due to a slippery or wet sub.stance on the floor. If the grocery store knew or should have known about the substance, and failed to clean it up or warn shoppers about the substance, then it might be liable for its negligence. Other instances where premises liability might arise include: broken or cracked sidewalks; trip and falls on stairs or escalators; slip and falls on ice or snow that has not been properly removed or treated; and where there are injuries caused by dog attacks
