Premises Liability

Premises Liability Lawyers Serving Corpus Christi, TX

Premises liability is a legal term used to describe property owners’ responsibility for providing reasonably safe environments for those who visit their home or business. In Texas, property owners are expected to take certain actions to prevent unnecessary accidents caused by safety hazards on their premises. This concept applies to both private and public property of all kinds. When a property owner or manager fails in their duty of reasonable care, leading to a visitor’s injuries, they may be held liable for damages in a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

Property Conditions that Can Cause Injury

Injuries sustained on another’s property can stem from any number of causes. When these causes are a result of the owner or manager’s negligence, they can result in accidents and injuries that could have been avoided through routine maintenance, standard safety protocols, and prompt repairs. If a property defect will take some time to repair, owners are expected to provide warning signs to visitors indicating the hazard.

Examples of premises liability negligence can include:

  • Slippery, oily, or wet floors
  • Inadequate or broken lighting 
  • Poorly stacked merchandise on shelves 
  • Debris and objects in aisleways
  • Cords and wires in foot traffic areas
  • Chemical leaks
  • Faulty wiring
  • Loose tiles, rugs, or carpeting
  • Broken handrails
  • Potholes
  • Negligent security resulting in criminal attacks

Premises Liability Claims Cover a Range of Incidents

Premises liability cases can occur in grocery stores, shopping centers, office buildings, parking structures, apartment buildings, restaurants, bars, stadiums, entertainment venues, schools, universities, hospitals, movie theaters, playgrounds, and more. They can involve swimming pools, elevators, escalators, stairs, and dog attacks. 

Injuries can range from cuts, bruises, sprains, and dislocations to broken bones, internal injuries, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. You may require hospitalization, continuing medical care, rehabilitation, or lifelong care and assistance. 

Premises liability claims pertain to property visitors such as “invitees” and “licensees.” Invitees are those who have specified personal or business reasons to visit, such as friends, customers, or clients. Licensees are those without specific invitations, such as utility service personnel. Property owners generally have no liability for injuries sustained by trespassers.
