Hidden Dangers - Identifying Negligence in Dallas Premises Liability Cases

Dangerous property conditions in Dallas Tx account for one of the largest causes of personal injuries in the city. The Texas Department of State Health Services categorizes trip, slip, and fall accidents as one of the leading causes of injuries for Texas citizens. However, slip and fall accidents are just one type of injury that can fall under premises liability.

Dallas premises liability cases cover various types of injuries. Regardless of the injury or its circumstances, the burden of proving liability falls on the injured party. By hiring one of the trusted Dallas personal injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw, you guarantee that your case will begin at a strong launching point.

Four Aspects of Premises Liability Claims in Dallas Texas

The aspects identifying and proving liability in a premises liability case are the same as any other personal injury case, as explained by the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code. They are:

1. Duty of Care

The injury victims must prove that the property owner has a legal duty to ensure safe premises to the victim. An expert premises liability lawyer will help you to identify any legal safety assurances that a property owner owed you.

2. Breach of Duty

The victim must prove that the property owner failed to provide the required level of safety. In the case of premises liability negligence in Texas, this means that the owner knew about a danger, or reasonably should have known about a danger, and failed to fix it or warn the victim about it.

3. Causation

The victim must prove that Dallas property owner negligence directly caused the accident and damages that they sustained.

4. Damages

Finally, the victim must prove that they suffered significant damages. These can include lost wages from work, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other losses.

Not that all four of these conditions must be met in order to win compensation for your injuries. Our team at Carabin Shaw will assist you with understanding each of these steps, and will gather the evidence and proof necessary to build your case and file your claim.

What is Negligence in a Dallas Premises Liability Case?

What makes premises liability cases unique when compared to other accidents is that the property owner owes a different duty of care to different categories of visitors on their property. However, this negligence of duty always stems from failing to create a safe environment for a visitor who has permission (whether explicit or implicit) to be on the property.

Identifying the liable party for premises liability negligence in Texas can be more or less difficult depending on the accident. For example, there are over 600,000 cats and dogs in the city, according to the City of Dallas. If you are attacked by an animal on the animal owner’s property, identifying liability and negligence can be simple.

However, there are also nine community swimming pools, as well as additional water centers, in Dallas. While these centers are city-owned, proving negligence is a more complex process that will greatly benefit from the eyes of an experienced attorney.
