Unsafe Property Injuries
Texas Premises Liability Injury Attorneys
Each year thousands of people suffer from injuries while on someone else’s property. These unsafe property injuries may result from any number of hazards such as wet floors, broken steps, falling merchandise, defective fencing or railing, or poor lighting. Unsafe property injuries may occur on any type of Texas residential or commercial property, including a neighbor’s home, a commercial retail store, an amusement park, or a parking lot. When injuries result from unsafe property conditions, the injured person may be entitled to compensation for injury-related medical costs, pain and suffering, impairment, and lost income. The standards for proving the liability of a property owner can be different for residential property owners and commercial property owners. Because of these different and complex legal standards, an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who regularly deals with premises liability cases can usually add great value to a case.
Texas Property Owner Negligence and Premises Liability
In Texas, residential and commercial property owners, as well as property operators and managers, have an obligation to maintain their premises in a manner that minimizes risk of injury to visitors. This includes repairing or removing any known dangers on the property or providing sufficient warning to visitors if such a danger exists. It also includes the duty to reasonably inspect and discover any dangerous condition on the property. Property owners and managers can be held liable for unsafe property injuries incurred on their property. If a visitor is hurt by a condition on the property, a personal injury claim can be filed for unsafe property injuries, which are known as a premises liability case.

What to Do if You Are Injured on an Unsafe Property in Texas
If you or someone you love has been injured on an unsafe property belonging to someone else, you should seek necessary medical attention immediately. If you or someone has access to a camera, try to photograph what caused the injury before the property owner changes or destroys the evidence. After your accident you may be contacted by a representative of the property owner or an insurance company, or you may be asked to sign a statement or incident report. Do not talk to any of these representatives or sign any statement because they are designed to hurt your case. In order to ensure your legal rights are protected, you should consult with a Texas attorney who handles unsafe property injury cases for advice about your case. Acting in a timely manner is critical because for unsafe property injury cases the condition that caused the injury is often repaired or removed soon after the injury, thus destroying the evidence needed to prove the case. The sooner an attorney is working on your case, the better the chance that evidence is preserved and the stronger is your case.
