Austin Premises Liability Lawyers
Representing Your Best Interests
If someone is a residential or commercial property owner in the state of Texas, they are bound by law to ensure the safety and protection of any visitors, customers, guests, passersby, or anyone else on the property. When these owners fail in their duty, and you suffer an injury on account of their negligence, fight back with our Austin premises liability attorneys. Since owners are liable for the pain of others inflicted by their own ignorance or lack of civic care, they should be expected to pay proper compensation as at least a small consolation for all that you have endured.
Types of Premise Liability Injuries
There are many types of injuries that can occur on a wide variety of premises. A person may make a liability claim about any form of property, as long as the owner failed to care for the location properly. If you had an injury at a little shop or a large shopping mall, at your apartment complex garage, or at a public swimming pool, you have a right to compensation if the owner was negligent. People most commonly suffer from slip and falls, but there are countless other types of premises liability claims too.
Regardless of the claim you are making, remember there is hope for you, since you can claim for multiple types of compensation, such as:
- Medical bills, including ones that are current or those in the future
- Lost income, salary, and wages
- Reduced earning capacity due to your injury
- Prolonged physical pain and suffering
- Emotional depression and mental anxiety
Slip & Fall Accidents
In the U.S., there are many clear laws that require business owners and property managers to take careful precaution so nobody walking on their property should ever be at risk of slipping, falling, and suffering a terrible injury. Owners and managers must always make sure floors and walkways are well maintained, and all surfaces must warning signs if they pose any risk. Not only should places be properly lit and cleaning equipment readily available, but the owners themselves should personally, frequently examine the premises for risk. The fact that tens of thousands of Americans slip and fall every day proves that many managers of establishments are negligent and refuse to properly care for visitors and passersby. Therefore, if you have been harmed by such negligence, you can stand up to this injustice, if you have our capable lawyers with you.
Anyone who owns a property or business is responsible to tell visitors if there is any possibility of a threat existent on the public premise. Moreover, if an area is known to have a higher crime rate, they are supposed to make sure they give appropriate levels of security. Unfortunately, injuries often still occur because the manager was either completely negligent or ignorant about the need for security, or simply did not care enough to provide for the safety of visitors. When victims have not been warned of potential threats, they possess the right to fight for compensation.
