Accidents happen, but they should not erase responsibility. If you have been injured at another person’s home or business, you may be able to hold the property owner accountable for your medical bills, wages lost from time off work, and the wrongful pain and suffering you experienced. Though we would need to meet with you personally in order to discuss the details, we’d like to address a few of the questions and comments that may have already come to mind.
What Are Some Common Types of Premises Liability Cases?
- Injuries caused by poorly maintained property

Injuries at Retail Stores, Restaurants, & Businesses
Generally, under Texas law, a business and/or property owner has an obligation to provide safe premises to its customers, including an obligation to inspect the premises for any dangerous conditions, to make any such conditions reasonably safe, and/or to warn its customers of any dangerous conditions. Dangerous conditions can be present in many different types and forms. If you have been injured while visiting a retail store, restaurant, or other business, there are legal rights and remedies available that could compensate you for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and non-economic damages such as past and future physical pain, mental anguish, physical impairment, and/or disfigurement.
