If you have been injured on someone else's property in a slip and fall accident, you may be wondering who is liable for providing you with compensation. In order to understand whether or not you have grounds to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, however, you must first understand the scope of the premises liability laws in the state. In Texas, all property owners are responsible for maintaining a safe and secure environment, both in and around the building, for any visitors that will be stepping foot on the premises. This means that all hazardous conditions must be remedied in a timely manner once they have been noticed by a property owner, manager and/or employee. Should the responsible party knowingly fail to diffuse a potentially dangerous situation, they may be held accountable for providing any subsequent victims with compensation.
