How Does a Premises Liability Lawsuit Work?

Premises liability lawsuits typically involve a plaintiff seeking compensation from a business owner, property owner, or company. Many times, these defendants are commercial entities with lawyers of their own and are prepared to challenge your claim in order to limit their liability and your financial recovery.

To have a viable premises liability claim in Dallas, you will need to show:

  • The entity you are bringing the claim against must have created or contributed to the factor that caused your injury.
  • The property or business owner knew about the factor but did not take reasonable care to remedy it, or the dangerous factor was present for a period of time in which it should have been properly addressed.
  • The property owner allowed you, either as an invitee or licensee, to be on the premises where the accident occurred.

A Dallas premises liability lawyer understands the process of establishing the above criteria and can build your case in a way that best sets you up to receive maximum compensation.

What Counts as a Premises Liability?

Any accident that occurs on dangerous or unsafe premises could be a premises liability accident. Among the most common seen by our law firm are:

  • Amusement park accidents
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Negligent securing
  • Playground injuries
  • Railing, balcony, and window falls
  • School injuries
  • Slip and falls
  • Wet floors without proper caution signage

Documenting Your Dallas Premises Liability Accident

The majority of premises liability and slip and fall accidents occur without any witnesses to corroborate your story. As such, it is essential that you report your accident to the property owner or manager as soon as possible. If you do not, they will be more likely to claim the accident never happened.

Typically, a business will have procedures in place for when a customer or visitor is injured on their property. This will generally include filing a report. Always be sure to get a copy.

There are other situations where no property owner is present or where a report with a property owner is not possible, such as a dog bite. In these instances, it is best to call the police in order to report the incident.

What to Do After a Slip-and-Fall or Premises Liability Accident

If you’ve been injured in a slip-and-fall or premises liability accident, these five steps can help protect your well-being as well as your chance for financial recovery:

  • Above all, seek medical treatment for your injuries, whether it is being seen by emergency services at the scene of the accident or making an appointment with your primary care physician.
  • Report the accident to the property owner or manager and ask for a copy of the report, if possible.
  • Document the scene of the accident and take pictures of the factor that caused your injury.
  • If there were witnesses to the accident, ask for their names and contact information.
  • Call a local slip and fall attorney in Dallas to assist with your personal injury claim.

When you neglect to speak with a Dallas injury attorney following an accident or injury, you may be risking more than you realize. Insurance adjusters will pick apart your claim, potentially leaving you with bills and expenses that were not your fault. Even speaking with an attorney can help you avoid potential pitfalls, including:
  • Unintentional inconsistencies – Crashes and accidents are hectic and disorienting. As time moves on, you will likely remember less and less about the events leading up to and following your accident. When an insurance company goes back to compare all the statements you made over a period of weeks or months, they will claim that any inconsistencies were attempts by you to mislead the company and label them as lies before a judge or a jury.
  • Exposure to trick questions – Representatives often ask trick questions or word their inquiries in a way meant to trick or trap you. You may even be pressured into agreeing to facts that are not completely accurate just to get the representative off your back. Even an aggravated response of “I don’t know, maybe” or “I guess” can come back to haunt you later.
  • Exposure to leading statements – Even a statement that seems innocent on its surface can damage your claim depending on your response. For example, by giving a positive response to statements like “I hope your back is starting to feel a bit better” or “Wow, it’s a miracle you weren’t more seriously injured,” you could be tricked into understating the severity of your injuries.
  • Failure to report undiagnosed injuries – Most doctors agree that the full extent of injuries suffered in an accident may not be evident until several days after the accident has occurred. If a claims adjuster contacts you within 24 hours of a crash and asks about your injuries, chances are you will not be able to provide a complete list of injuries. This will not stop the insurance company from questioning and attempting to dismiss any injuries that became symptomatic after that initial recorded statement was made.
  • Provide material for cross-examination – By the time deposition or trial occurs, chances are the defense counsel will have reviewed your recorded statements dozens of times. They will craft questions for cross-examination with the understanding that you likely don’t remember everything you said or agreed to in that recorded statement. And when you misremember or contradict yourself in a moment of confusion, they will try to claim your misstatement proves your testimony is not credible.
A reputable personal injury lawyer can utilize their legal expertise, resources, and staff to help build your case and demonstrate the damages suffered. They understand what damages can be sought, ensuring you are compensated not only for your injuries but also financial losses tied to lost wages and medical checkups.

Henry Law offers FREE no-risk case consultations to all injured victims.
