What is premises liability?

Premises liability includes slips, trips and falls, along with a variety of other types of accidents and injuries received due to the negligence of a property owner or business operator. Your injury may fall under the premises liability umbrella if your injury was caused by:

  • Unsafe stairs or sidewalks
  • Floors in disrepair
  • Abrupt, unmarked flooring changes
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Holes and other hidden ground hazards
  • Improperly maintained safety rails
  • Worn-out playground equipment
  • Lack of security that results in a criminal attack
  • Mold or other indoor respiratory hazards

A property owner or operator has a duty to maintain the premises in a safe condition to protect customers or guests from injury. If a person is injured due to a dangerous or hazardous condition, the property owner or operator may be financially responsible.

What has to be proven to win a premises liability case?

Texas law is strict about the proof required to hold a property owner or operator liable for injuries sustained on the premises. Every case must be thoroughly investigated to find evidence to support these required elements:

  • The injured person had a right to be on the premises, whether as a customer or guest, or as an otherwise foreseeable plaintiff.
  • The owner or operator knew or should have known about a dangerous condition on the property.
  • The owner or operator failed to take reasonable steps to protect the safety of visitors.
  • The dangerous condition on the premises caused your injuries.

The element of proof that requires the most intensive investigation and attention is showing that the owner or operator knew or should have known about the hazard that caused your injuries. Our legal team at The Law Offices of J. Kent McAfee, P.C. leaves no stone unturned in searching for evidence to support each element of proof, because we know how closely Texas courts will examine each case before agreeing to hold the property owner or operator responsible for your injuries.
