Private Property and Hazardous Conditions

Accidents that occur because of hazardous conditions on private property fall under the umbrella of premises liability law. Generally, this means that the owner of a property owes a certain level of safety to anyone who visits their property with implied or explicit permission, and numerous personal injury accidents fall under this umbrella.

In Laredo, for example, some of the most common personal injury cases include slip and fall accidents, dog bites, elevator and escalator accidents, and similar categories. Slip and fall accidents alone can account for poorly maintained sidewalks, slippery floors, uneven stairs, and more. Each of these can be a premises liability case if it occurred due to another individual’s negligence on their property.

Hiring a premises liability attorney in Laredo is vital to such a case, as these experts will help you to establish the level of safety that the property owner owes you, by fitting you into one of three categories.


An invitee can be a grocery shopper, restaurant diner, or other individual who enters a property for business and with the permission of the property owner and to the benefit of both parties. Invitees are owed the highest level of security on a property, with owners being required to inspect for hazardous conditions and warn visitors.


A licensee can be a social guest, party guest, or other individual who enters a property with the permission of the owner and for the benefit of the visitor. Property owners are required to warn these visitors about potential dangers, but are not required by law to inspect for those dangers. If a hazardous condition was deemed impossible to identify without inspection, they may not be held liable for the accident.


A trespasser is owed the least from a property owner, as a trespasser enters a property without the owner's knowledge or permission. Apart from gross negligence or intentional harm, a property owner is not liable for the hazardous conditions a trespasser may face. There are exceptions to this on occasion, namely involving children who cannot identify the threats of certain objects like unattended pools or construction machinery.

If you or a loved one has been harmed due to the hazardous conditions on another party’s property, an expert attorney with Carabin Shaw is ready to help you identify the options available to you.
