Houston Premises Liability Attorneys
Why You Need a Premises Liability Lawyer
In the United States, a person who owns a property is legally obligated to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their premises. Failing to do so can result in a lawsuit if someone is hurt as a result of the dangerous conditions. Premises liability is a legal concept that holds the property owner responsible for any injury caused by a defective or unsafe condition. Once a visitor is invited into a particular location, be it a residential house or a commercial space, the law holds the owner accountable for any kind of injury a visitor may have as a result of unsafe conditions on the property, such as wet floors, unsafe stairways, or malfunctioning elevators.
If you have been injured by a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, Attorney Tom wants to hear your story.

How Attorney Tom Can Help
Following the incident, the property owner’s insurance company will contact you. A claims adjuster will recommend you settle the claim right on the spot and tell you that you will not need a lawyer to represent you. While it is tempting to accept the offer straight away, the insurance company’s initial offer is categorically going to be worth much less than what your actual damages are. The insurer is not in the business of paying out large sums of money, but instead their goal is to pay out as little as possible. This is why you must consider hiring a lawyer to help you. Hiring an attorney will not only provide you with invaluable information about your case, it can also maximize the damages you are awarded, while handling all of the complicated legal matters on your behalf. Here are some of the benefits Attorney Tom can offer:
