Were You Injured on Someone Else’s Property?

Ask a Dallas Personal Injury Lawyer for Help!

Owners of private properties or businesses do not have to fulfill many obligations to the general public or their guests. In most cases they can decorate the property however they please and they are given freedom as to how they conduct themselves on their own land. One of the few things they must do, however, is maintain a safe environment that is free of any unreasonable hazards.

According to Texas State law, all property owners are responsible for any preventable accidents that take place on their property. To say that the accident was preventable is to imply that the cause of harm should have been obvious to the property owner and that it was dangerous enough to demand immediate remedy. By allowing such a hazard to exist, they could be found negligent in a civil law suit.

If you have been injured while visiting someone else’s property, contact a Dallas premises liability attorney from the Lenahan Law Firm today!

What is the difference between invitees, licensees, and trespassers?

After an accident has occurred on a negligently maintained piece of property, the relationship between the victim and the property owner will be examined in order to determine the responsible party’s actual liability. Someone who has been implicitly invited onto the property to conduct business – such as a customer at a retail or grocery store – is considered an invitee and has the right to expect no danger exists on the premises. A person who is permitted to enter the property as they please but without an express invitation – such as a trusted friend or house guest – is known as a licensee and has the same guarantee of safety as an invitee.

When someone enters the property unlawfully, however, they are considered a trespasser. The illegal activities of a trespasser remove their right to expect a hazard-free area and any accidents that cause them personal injury are likely not to be grounds for suing the property owner. That is to say that as the controller of a property, you must provide a safe environment for the people you allow to be there, and where you allow them to be, but not necessarily in areas you consider strictly private or closed.

Make Your Premises Liability Claim with Confidence

As negligence is the underlying factor in all premises liability cases, it is important for you to retain a Dallas personal injury attorney who can examine the scene with a careful eye for detail. By proving how the incident occurred and how it could have been prevented, you might be able to win financial compensation for your suffering that covers medical bills, lost wages, and more.

Some of the most common forms of property negligence that our attorneys will look for include failing to:

  • Follow basic building codes
  • Maintain safety handrails
  • Provide adequate lighting
  • Stop an intoxicated guest from driving
  • Clear away spilled liquids, ice, or snow
  • Remove dangerous debris
  • Test smoke detectors regularly
