Do I Have a Premises Liability Case?
It is impossible for Houstonians to avoid running into circumstances brought on by careless property owners in a bustling city with a thriving nightlife, expanding economy, and economic expansion.
In a premises liability in Houston, the plaintiff (the person filing the lawsuit) can claim that the defendant (the business owner or person responsible for the property where the accident occurred) was negligent in their handling of the property.
If you have been injured on someone else's property, you may be able to recover monetary damages for your losses if it was the property owner's fault.

Premises liability is the legal concept that holds property owners, businesses, and other responsible parties liable for injuries or accidents that occur on their property.
Whether you have been hurt in a slip and fall accident while shopping at a Houston grocery store, by an unsafe condition on your apartment complex's premises, or an animal attack at a friend’s house, it is crucial to understand what type of compensation you may be entitled to if your injury was caused by someone else's carelessness.
As a general rule, anyone who owns land has some degree of responsibility for making sure that other people aren't harmed while visiting that space. This means that if you're injured while at someone else's house—or even on their lawn—they could be held accountable for injuries you suffered as a result of an unsafe environment or lack of adequate security measures (like gates in the case of a swimming pool lawsuit).

While there are many factors that can affect the outcome of your premises liability case, proving that you were owed a duty of care and that the property owner’s negligence caused your injury or accident is essential.
In order to make a successful claim, a Texas premises liability lawyer will need to prove that:
- The property owner was legally obligated to act reasonably.
- The dangerous condition existed before your visit.
- A reasonable person would have taken precautions before allowing others into their premises (or would at least have known about the danger).
