When Negligent Property Owners Put Visitors at Risk
Under Texas law, property owners, management companies, tenants and others can be held accountable for injuries that happen on their property. Texas case law has supported injury victims' right to compensation in these accidents numerous times. There is a burden of proof that must be met in these cases, however, in order for your claim to be successful.
Meeting the burden of proof can be extremely difficult, and it is important that you choose a lawyer with the experience and the skill to reach a favorable outcome on your behalf. At the law firm of John K. Zaid & Associates, PLLC, we provide hands-on, personalized representation to victims of all types of premises liability claims. You can rely on us to utilize every legal resource at our disposal in an effort to protect your interests.
The Burden of Proof in Texas Premises Liability Cases
Among the key issues that need to be proven in these cases are the following:
- The property owner, its management company or another responsible party knew or should have known that a hazard existed that posed a risk of injury to lawful visitors.
- The property owner, its management company or another responsible party had constructive notice of the hazard.
- The property owner, its management company or another responsible party failed to mark or correct the hazard.
- The hazard was the cause of your injury.
With every case we accept, we conduct a complete investigation into the accident. We work to identify all responsible parties and explore the viability of pursuing claims against each of them. In addition to the property owners, it may be appropriate to explore claims against elevator and escalator manufacturers or maintenance companies, security companies and others.
