Property owners are legally responsible for keeping their property reasonably safe for visitors, tenants, and patrons. This includes notifying and warning visitors of potentially unsafe conditions and repairing known hazards. When they fail to fulfill this duty, innocent people can become seriously injured.
At The Law Office of Brandy Douglas, our experienced premises liability attorney has deep knowledge of all aspects of personal injury law. If you or a loved one was injured while visiting public or private property in Grayson County, we can help you determine if you have grounds to file a premises liability suit in civil court.
Examples of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability is an area of personal injury law that deals specifically with injury cases that occur due to unsafe conditions on public or private properties. For example, a slip and fall accident in the grocery store may result in a premises liability case being brought against the grocery store. However, just because someone is injured on someone else’s property doesn’t mean they automatically qualify for a premises liability lawsuit.
Premises liability cases can involve:
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents
- Inadequate security
- Inadequate lighting
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Swimming pool accidents
- Amusement par accidents
- Damaged or unsafe walkways and stairwells
To have grounds to file a claim, the property owner must have breached their aforementioned duty to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition for visitors. Therefore, proving a premises liability case will involve identifying whether the accident was caused by a property owner’s or manager’s negligence. This can be a complicated process, and premises liability laws are complex. As such, it is always recommended that you work with a skilled attorney when filing a claim, like ours at The Law Office of Brandy Douglas.
Did you know that when it comes to premises liability cases, that slip, trip, and fall injuries are the most common? It’s startling how frequently slip, and fall accidents happen. Thousands of people are injured yearly in slip-and-fall accidents, from poorly maintained sidewalks to obstructions in store aisles. Though they are often brushed aside, the injuries resulting from these accidents can be incredibly serious.
