TX Premises Liability Lawyers | Injured Austin Tenants
Although it is one of the most common categories of personal injury accident, premises liability cases are uncommonly discussed, known, or understood. Premises liability cases are the result of being injured on another individual or company’s property, due to negligence on the part of the property owner. This property can be a home, mall, restaurant, or other owned property. In Austin, where construction on roads and sidewalks is constant and many restaurants and public spaces are still recently reopened, the threat of injury becomes a constant.

- The first category of visitor to a premises is an invitee, an individual who is on the premises for the mutual benefit of themself and the property owner. Any customer in a retail environment is within this category, for example, or a customer at a restaurant, public pool, etc. Invitees are entitled to the highest level of safety, and premises owners of these establishments must make all potential dangers known and actively inspect for those dangers as well.
- A licensee is a visitor to a property with the knowledge of the owner for reasons outside commerce. Usually this includes house visitors, family or friends, or other individuals who are there without a specific benefit to the property owner. For such visitors, the owners must make them aware of all potential and known dangers, but such property owners are not typically liable for dangers that they were not aware of. As such, these property owners are not required to regularly inspect their property.
- The final category of visitor is a trespasser, or an individual on the property without the owner’s knowledge or permission. Property owners may not intentionally cause harm to such individuals, but they are not liable for the accidents that occur on the property in most cases. Because there are some exceptions, working with a premises liability attorney in Austin Tx is vital to your case.
