Navigating a Dallas Premises Liability Lawsuit After an Accident

Dallas TX is a major city with hundreds of privately owned and public spaces. While locals and visitors enjoy strolling through its diverse neighborhoods and destinations, countless potentially dangerous hazards could lead to serious injury. From slipping on a freshly mopped floor to toxic exposure to a dangerous chemical, the places we love to visit can still cause life-changing injuries and illnesses. If you were recently injured while on another’s property and suspect negligence may have been the cause, you may have grounds to pursue a Dallas premises liability lawsuit.

In Texas, premises liability is a property owner’s legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for anyone who visits. If an accident occurs on the property due to an unsafe environment, the owner is liable for the injury or illness resulting in that negligence.

Texas Premises Liability Laws to Understand

Property owners in Dallas TX may be held financially responsible for an injury caused by a hazard they knew about or should have known about but failed to correct or warn visitors about.

Types of premises liability cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Slips and falls
  • Animal attacks
  • Ineffective security measures leading to theft or assault
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Sidewalks, walkways, or paths that are uneven and hazardous
  • Faulty construction or dangerous renovations
  • Elevator and escalator malfunctions
  • Falling merchandise

While all of these are possibilities, slips and falls are the most common cause of premises liability lawsuits in big cities. While seemingly minor, you can sue for slip and fall in Dallas TX due to the potential extremity of the injury both physically and emotionally. An experienced Texas lawyer will help you receive the maximum compensation for someone else’s negligence.

Who Can You Sue for Your Accident?

After your accident, it is important to understand who is liable for your injury. This generally depends on who owns the property you were injured on, and a Dallas attorney will, of course, help to identify any and all eligible parties.

  • For privately owned premises, the owner must provide a safe environment and warn visitors about potentially dangerous areas. Those who fail to do so are liable for any resulting accidents, and victims can sue the owner of the property for negligence as a result.
  • The only time liability is limited in Texas is on premises with recreational activities. These activities include rock climbing, sports, swimming, skating, and more. In these cases, the owner must post signage sharing the potential risks of participating recreationally on the property. If no signage is posted, they may still be held liable.
  • On public property, like government-owned buildings, gross negligence must be proven to hold the owner or organization liable.
