Experienced counselors assist clients injured on commercial property
Under Texas law, individuals and businesses who own real property owe a certain duty of care to people lawfully on their premises. Property owners who were aware (or should have been aware) of existing hazards and failed to take action to remediate them or provide proper warnings may be held accountable if someone on their premises is injured. Slip and fall injuries commonly suffered in grocery stores may be caused by spilled liquids, falling merchandise, and a failure to warn of slippery floors. But patrons and visitors can slip, trip and fall due to poor lighting, uneven walkways, and a range of other hazards found in other commercial properties, including:
- Office buildings
- Parking lots
- Restaurants and bars
- Banquet halls
- Office buildings
- Water parks
If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall on the premises of a commercial property, it’s important to contact an attorney promptly before any changes or repairs to the hazardous premises are made. We have experience holding business owners accountable for injuries suffered on their properties.
Accomplished advocates hold homeowners accountable for visitors’ injuries
Homeowners also have a responsibility to remove or disclose to guests any hazards on their premises that they are aware of (or should be aware of) based on normal inspection of the property. Owners of private land and residences must inform their guests or visitors of unsafe conditions they could encounter on the property.
In some cases, even trespassers may have the right to be informed of known hazards if it is possible to anticipate their arrival. For instance, land with trails or ponds that might attract people could fall under Texas’s attractive nuisance doctrine. An attractive nuisance is a hazardous property condition that could attract children and others to it because of its appeal.
If you recently slipped and fell at someone’s home or property and were injured as a result, we can act swiftly to pursue the compensation your injuries merit, for medical costs, lost wages due to missed work, and other losses.
