Respected Dallas-area law firm builds cases after property owner negligence
Property owners in Rockwall County and throughout Texas are legally obligated to keep visitors safe from dangerous property conditions. This may mean removing hazards, putting up barriers or “caution” signs or taking other protective measures. If a property owner fails to adhere to this duty of care, he or she may be liable for a visitor’s injuries suffered as a result. Our skillful lawyers work to prove the negligence of property owners after accidents caused by:
- Slippery floors — Wet surfaces caused by leaks, spilled liquids or maintenance are factors in many slips and falls. Injuries to the head, spine, hips, ankles and wrists may require costly medical procedures and extensive recovery times.
- Missing or inadequate handrails — A stairway that lacks secure and properly positioned handrails may put visitors at risk of falling.
- Damaged or uneven grounds — Potholes and broken stairs create tripping hazards that can lead to broken bones and other serious injuries.
- Poor lighting — Walking through a poorly lit area or passageway may prevent a person from seeing a hazardous condition that would be avoidable if proper lighting were provided.
Under the modified comparative negligence rule used in Texas, a property owner can be held liable for damages if he is found to be more at-fault for an accident than the injured party. Our lawyers are adept at meeting this burden of proof.
