Common Types of Premises Liability Claims

At Anderson Injury Lawyers, we represent individuals who were hurt in all types of dangerous property accidents, including:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents: These incidents can be related to poorly maintained sidewalks and walkways, standing water, loose carpets and rugs, overly waxed floors, poorly lit areas, and foreign substances on the ground. Slip and falls happen on all types of properties, including hotels and motels, apartment complexes, public areas, grocery stores, retail stores, gas stations, other businesses, and personal residences.
  • Trip and Fall Accidents: Falls on another person’s property is not always a result of slipping. We often represent clients who tripped over dangerous debris, equipment, torn carpet, and uneven stairs.
  • Falls From Heights: Slip or trip and falls tend to include someone falling to the ground. We also handle premises liability cases in which someone falls from a significant height for some reason. These incidents are often caused by a lack of property rails or safety features or loose railings and encompass balconies, deck, and stairwell accidents.
  • Elevator and Escalator Accidents: Our premises liability lawyers have represented many individuals injured due to elevators and escalators that failed or did not work properly. If you were injured in an elevator or escalator accident, call us right away.
  • Pool Accidents: There are many regulations that public, private, and residential pool owners need to adhere to. When they fail to do so, they put their guests in danger. If you or your child were injured at someone else’s pool, contact us to determine if the pool owner violated the law or was negligent in some other way.
  • Amusement Park Accidents: When you purchase a ticket and enjoy a day at an amusement or theme park, you often accept certain risks. However, that does not mean the property owner is not liable for certain incidents. If you were injured at an amusement or theme park, call us right away.
  • Sports Stadiums and Entertainment Venue Accidents: If you were injured while attending a sporting event at a stadium or a concert or some other gathering at a large venue, you should speak with a premises liability attorney as soon as possible.

  • Fires and Explosions: If you were injured in a fire or an explosion in Fort Worth, call Anderson Injury Lawyers as soon as you can.
  • Negligent Security: When you are walking around an apartment complex, resort, or through a bar or restaurant, you should be protected from crime. The property owners should take steps to install, use, and maintain appropriate security measures for criminal threats in the area. If you are the victim of a crime and suffer an injury, the property owner may be liable for not implementing adequate security.

What Is Premises Liability Law?

Premises liability is the area of law that determines when property owners or other parties may be responsible for injuries a person suffers in an accident on the property. For example, if you are shopping in a grocery store and slip on a clear liquid, suffering a broken wrist, premises liability law governs whether the grocery store is responsible; and therefore, liable for compensating you for your physical, emotional, and financial injuries.

Premises liability lawsuits are often complex and can be highly nuanced. Whether or not the property owner or another party, such as a tenant or maintenance provider, is liable for your injuries depends on several factors:

  • Why you were on the property: Did you have permission to be there? Property owners do not owe the same duty of care to trespassers as they do invitees or licensees.
  • Whether the hazard was concealed or open and obvious: Property owners are typically not responsible for injuries that result from open and obvious hazards that a guest or customer would be expected to notice and avoid.
  • Whether or not you were careless or reckless: If there is evidence you acted in a negligent manner, the property owner can defend against a premises liability claim.
  • Whether you suffered a compensable injury: If may be that the property owner or other party was negligent regarding their property and you were involved in an accident. However, you must be able to prove that you suffered an injury that the owner can compensate you for.

It can be difficult to determine if you have a valid premises liability claim without speaking to an experienced attorney. Do not hesitate to call us to speak with a premises liability lawyer about your accident and injuries.

Texas Premises Liability Law

Under Texas premises liability law, why you are on the property matters in determining whether you have the right to file a premise liability lawsuit. You may have been a trespasser, an invite, or a licensee.

You are a trespasser if you did not have permission to be on the property. You may have been asked to leave and refused to do so, or you may have ignored a sign that said: “Do Not Enter.” Whatever the case, the property owner owes you very little when you are on their property without consent.

You are an invitee if you enter the owner’s land with implicit or explicit consent for your and the owner’s mutual benefit. This encompasses situations when you are a customer, client, or employee of a business. Owners have the greatest duty of care to invitees. According to Texas court decisions, owners owe invitees the duty to make the property safe and warn against concealed, unreasonably dangerous conditions that the owner is, or reasonably should be, aware of, but the invitee is not aware of.

You are a licensee if you are on the property owner’s land with permission, but you are there for your own benefit. In most circumstances, salespeople, and social guests are considered licensees. Owners owe you the second highest duty of care. It is a greater duty than the one owed to trespassers, but it is less than what is owed to invitees. Property owners must make the property safe or warn licensee’s about unreasonable dangers that the owner actually knows about.

After an accident on someone else’s property that results in you being injured, we recommend calling us to speak with a premises liability lawyer. We will analyze the circumstances to determine if you can prove each element of a premises liability claim and therefore, obtain compensation for your injuries.

Additional Information about Premises Liability Law

Elements of a Premises Liability Lawsuit

Premises liability claims can be difficult to prove because you must establish several elements:

  • You were an invitee on the property, and the owner owed you a duty of care.
  • There was an unreasonably dangerous condition on the premises.
  • The dangerous condition was hidden.
  • The property owner knew or reasonably should have known about the hidden dangerous condition.
  • You were unaware of the dangerous condition.
  • You suffered a compensable injury due to the dangerous condition.

If you were a licensee and not an invitee, the elements of your case differ. Invitees must prove actual or constructive knowledge of the hidden unreasonably dangerous condition. However, for a licensee, you must prove the property owner had actual knowledge of the condition. This can be a higher standard, which is why it is important to work with an experienced and skilled attorney.
