Common Premises Liability Lawsuits

In Houston TX, property owners can be held liable if they have knowledge or should know about an unsafe hazard on their property but fail to warn or protect visitors. There are several common unsafe conditions that may cause significant injury that property owners are responsible for preventing:

  • Slips and falls: this is the most common injury that visitors experience in premises liability cases. Wet floors, unsecured carpeting, and tripping hazards like cords and merchandise can cause dangerous situations. Speak with a specialized Slip and fall lawyer in Houston TX if this is the cause of your injury.
  • Falling items: stacked boxes or merchandise falling from unsteady shelving are just a couple examples of hazardously placed items that can cause injury.
  • Elevator and escalator malfunctions: if electrical failure on an elevator or escalator causes an injury, the property owner is liable.
  • Premises inadequacies: missing steps, broken railing, and lack of lighting can all lead to visitor injuries.

Injuries like these can occur anywhere but most commonly happen at swimming pools, on construction sites, in retail spaces and warehouses, and in poorly lit or maintained parking lots. If your injury was due to a situation similar to those above, you should discuss options with a Houston premises liability lawyer as soon as possible.

Do You Have a Case in Houston?

Texas premises liability law defines three types of visitors on property:

  1. Invitee: this is someone who was directly invited or the invitation was implied, like a store customer.
  2. Licensee: someone who isn’t invited but has permission to be on the premises, like a contractor or real estate agent.
  3. Trespasser: someone who has no legal right to be on the property. Property owners are usually not held liable for injuries sustained by trespassers.

If you identify as an invitee or a licensee and were injured while visiting someone’s property, you may have a case against the property owner. After your injury, you should take the following steps to ensure your well-being and to begin proper documentation of your accident.

Next Steps After Your Injury
  • Visit a doctor immediately: Getting medical attention ensures your good health while beginning a record of your injury for future lawsuits
  • Take photos and videos: document the accident location and the extent of your injury caused by the accident
  • Report the accident: contact the property owner and ensure proper documentation of the accident
  • Save any evidence: any ruined clothing or damaged property should be saved as proof of the accident
  • Gather testimonies: contact any witnesses at the scene of your accident can share what they saw and support your story
  • Consult with an attorney: a Premises liability attorney in Houston Texas can help you navigate the legal process as you focus on healing
