Lewisville Premises Injury Lawyer
Texas Premises Liability Law
The general rule of law is that the owner or operator of the premises has a duty to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn people of any dangerous condition of which the owner or operator either knows about, or should know about. When you are seriously injured as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else's property, then you may have the right to seek compensation for the resulting losses.
Personal injuries resulting from premises liability often occur in or on:
- Public walking areas
- Swimming pools
- Parking facilities
These dangerous conditions are sometimes found at shopping centers, apartment complexes, supermarkets, amusement parks, stadiums, airports, constructions sites, and work sites.
In order to have a premises liability case, you typically must prove one of three things: that the owner or employees created the dangerous condition that causes the injury; that the owner knew about the dangerous condition and failed to take steps to repair or correct it; or that the condition existed for a long enough time that the store or property owner should have known about it.
The collection of evidence in premises liability cases is crucial. Because by their very nature, these accidents happened on someone else's property, the evidence needed to prove your case can be lost or destroyed with the passage of time. If you believe that you have a premises liability case, it is imperative that you contact a Texas personal injury lawyer at Steele Law, P.C. at (214) 333-9393 as soon as possible so that we may begin collecting the necessary evidence and protecting your rights.
