SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT LAWYERS SERVING INJURED CLIENTS IN HOUSTON AND SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES
Premises liability cases hold business owners, city governments, and property owners liable when injuries occur on their properties, including injuries that are the result of negligent maintenance or unsafe premises. If a property owner was aware of a hazard on their property and failed to take steps to resolve it, they may be found negligent and be held responsible for your injuries after an accident.
In order to prove liability for negligence in these cases, the following must be established by the plaintiff:
- There was a dangerous condition present on the property
- The dangerous condition contributed to or caused an injury
- The operator of the premises created, knew, or should have been aware of the condition
- The operator of the premises failed to correct the condition before the injury occurred
