Grounds to Pursue a Premises Liability Lawsuit
Premises liability is the legal responsibility of a property owner or manager to take reasonable steps to prevent injuries on the property. If an accident occurs, it is critical that personal injury lawyers investigate whether the property owner either knew or should have known of the hazard that caused the injury or made sure that the property was constructed and maintained according to building codes and ordinances. Examples of Denton personal injury cases that fall under the area of premises liability law include the following:
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents: these are the most common source of injury in Texas and may occur due to poorly maintained stairways, hallways, or walkways.
- Biohazards: mildew, lead, mold, and carbon monoxide that may present a risk of harm to people on the property.
- Drowning accidents: the failure of the property owner to keep the pool or deep water areas secure and closed off from the public when needed.
- Structural defects: Property owners are required to repair and maintain their buildings so that people are not subject to injury if a structure collapses.
