Premises Liability Attorneys-Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas

Premises liability goes beyond slipping or tripping, although this type of accident is common and can be very serious. Any unexpected hazard in a walkway can be dangerous, including holes in the floor, cords and cables and uncleared sidewalks. On stairways, a slippery surface or the lack of a handrail can put visitors in danger of a steep fall. Businesses and private homes with invited guests may be liable to a premises liability lawyer in Dallas, Texas for failing to correct these hazards in a reasonable amount of time, or warn visitors.

In Texas, visitors may also be able to hold premises owners responsible for negligence in providing security. A violent crime is certainly the fault of the criminal, but business owners may also be responsible if they’re aware of the danger and take no steps to prevent it. This may be the case if the property has a history of previous crimes, is in a “bad” area or has a feature that attracts crime. Failure to fix a broken gate, provide security officers or light a parking area adequately can all be the basis for claims by premises liability attorneys in Dallas, Texas.
