What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability holds business and individual property owners accountable for accidents that occur on their property. These owners are legally responsible for maintaining a safe property and notifying visitors of any dangerous conditions.
A premises liability case occurs when an owner has failed to maintain the property, and someone is injured as a result. Overall, the goal of premises liability is to enforce certain safety standards and ensure that visitors are protected when entering a property.
Examples of premises liability can include:
- Dog bites
- Slip and falls
- Swimming pool accidents
- Negligent security
- Toxic chemical exposure
If you've been injured due to a property owner's failure to maintain their property, contact our firm for a free case evaluation. There are no upfront fees and you only pay after and if we win.
Premises Liability in Texas
In Texas, the level of liability for accidents on someone else's property is based on the status of the victim. Social guests, business visitors, and trespassers all have different levels of protection under the law.
Types of visitors include:
- Invitees: This category includes individuals who have entered the property with expressed or implied invitation, or permission from the owner. Examples can include customers in a store, business employees, and more. The property owner has the highest level of duty towards invitees and must warn them of any unsafe conditions on the premises.
- Licensees: Licensees are individuals who enter the property with expressed permission or consent of their owner for their benefit. The property owner is responsible for warning licensees about potential dangers present on the premises in a reasonable manner. However, in this category, the owner is not obligated to inspect or fix these hazards.
- Trespasser: A trespasser is an individual who enters the premises without permission from the owner. For this category of individuals, property owners are not required to warn trespassers of hazards on the property, unless the property has equipment placed with the intent to injure trespassers or if the victim is a child.
If you sustained an injury due to the negligence of a property owner, it is important to seek the help of a premises liability lawyer. These types of cases can be complex, as there may be specific laws and regulations that govern how property owners must maintain their space.
