Fighting For Your Right To Compensation After An Accident On Someone Else’s Property
In Texas, property owners owe a basic duty of care to visitors to keep their property safe from hazards that could cause an injury. When they breach this duty and you get hurt, you may have a valid premises liability personal injury claim.
Whether your injury occurred due to a slip and fall, falling objects, or a dog bite, our personal injury attorneys at Kelso Law, PLLC, in Dallas can help you. Working with an experienced attorney will help you obtain the maximum possible settlement from the property owner’s insurance company. While money cannot take away your pain, it can cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Holding Responsible Property Owners Accountable For Your Injuries
Property owners owe a duty of care to keep their premises safe and warn visitors of hazardous conditions. This duty varies depending on who is injured on the property and under what circumstances. For instance, the highest duty is owed to somebody who is invited onto the property for business purposes, such as to a customer at a grocery store.
Common causes of premises liability accidents include:
- Wet or uneven floors
- Objects or wires in walkways
- Inadequate lighting
- Improperly maintained stairways
- Negligent security (violent crimes)
- Dog bites
Because premises liability law is complicated, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney right away if you’re injured on someone’s property. If possible and safe, take pictures of the hazardous condition that caused your injury. Seek medical attention right away, and if you’ve fallen, try not to move until medics arrive and determine how serious your injury is.
