Premises Liability Lawyers in Texas
Getting hurt on someone else’s property due to an unsafe condition is covered by a type of law called premises liability. You should seek a Premises Liability Lawyer who can tell you right away if you have a case.
When you visit a business or someone else’s property, you assume you will be safe. This is not always the case.
The most common type of premises cases are "slip-and-fall" accidents. These happen when an owner does not keep the property safe for the people who live, work or visit.
These cases can involve neglect by the person who owns the home. They also apply to a company or big stores like Wal-Mart, Target or Kroger.
