Injured on Someone Else’s Property? Dallas Premises Liability Lawyers
Have you been injured on someone else's property during a shopping trip? Maybe you had a slip and fall at a restaurant? Or perhaps fought off a neighbor’s aggressive dog while sitting on your porch, sustaining an injury as a result of the attack? A premises liability claim can arise from any of these circumstances.
Residents of Dallas are certain to come across irresponsible property owners who fail to protect the safety of their invitees in a city pulsing with commerce, businesses, entertainment, and an overall bustling lifestyle. If you have sustained injuries due to the actions or inactions of a negligent property owner, the Texas attorneys at Carabin Shaw are prepared to pursue the best possible outcome so that you are compensated for your pain and suffering.Establishing a Successful Premises Liability Case
In order to establish a valid premises liability case, you will need to prove the following factors:
- A hazardous condition already existed on the property
- This dangerous condition led to your injury
- The owner or operator of the premises is responsible for the condition, had previous knowledge of the potential danger, or should clearly have known about the danger
- The owner of operator of the premises neglected to fix the hazardous condition prior to the injury
An attorney with knowledge of premises liability law in Texas can help victims understand whether or not they should pursue a premises liability claim. At Carabin Shaw, your initial consultation is completely free. When speaking to our legal representatives, it is important to be honest about the details of the accident so that we can best advise you on how to proceed.When to Consult a Dallas Injury Lawyer for a Premises Liability Case
Although premises liability claims can arise from a plethora of situations, one thing holds true: the injuries sustained due to dangerous conditions on a property can be severe and even result in death, like in the case of animal attacks or swimming pool accidents.
If you find yourself receiving bill after bill for medical expenses accrued as a result of an injury or cannot pay your basic monthly expenditures due to loss of income, it is time to consult with a personal injury lawyer. Oftentimes, individuals will resort to contacting a business and filing a report with a manager. In turn, the business will file a claim with their insurance, which may end with an adjuster offering the victim a low-ball settlement for his or her damages.
The truth is that some injuries may require a more in-depth investigation to establish if the property owner is liable for the damages. Only a legal expert is able to determine the relationship between the liable party and the victim. Was the victim an invitee, a person who has been welcomed into a property for a business or professional reason? Or was the victim a visitor on the property not seeking economic advantage? Or perhaps the hurt individual is a trespasser?
If you are unsure of your status on a property, contacting a lawyer can help clarify any confusion, which is important because this can help decide whether the property owner owes you a duty of care by maintaining their property safe or providing enough warnings.Our Premises Liability Attorneys in Dallas Won’t Charge Unless You Win
