Premises Liability FAQs

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is a legal theory expressing that property owners are liable for injuries and accidents that happen on their property. The sorts of injuries that can result in premises liability can cause vary from a slip and fall in a grocery store or office building to an injury in a zoo or public arena. Liability depends on the laws and procedures of each state.

What injuries are caused by dangerous property conditions?

Attorneys see many of the same common injuries in premises liability which can include:

  • Dog bite Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Back Injuries
  • Head Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Exposure to toxic substances or diseases
  • Slip and Falls

How long do I have to file a premises liability claim?

Under Texas law, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit for compensation for damages caused by a premises liability incident. However, if you want to assert a premises liability claim against the state government or a state agency or a local government, you must provide notice of your claim to the appropriate government agency within six months of the date of your injury. If you fail to timely file your lawsuit or provide notice of your claim, your suit can be dismissed.

If am injured on leased property, who is responsible- the landlord or the tenant?

As a general rule, a property owner is responsible for maintaining the property and keeping it free of dangerous and hazardous conditions.However, a tenant could be responsible for maintaining the property or certain aspects of the property according to their lease. When a premises liability accident occurs due to a harmful or unsafe condition on a leased property, it is often necessary to review the lease for the property to determine who may have been responsible for the dangerous or hazardous condition.In some cases, a property owner or tenant may contract out maintenance duties to a third party, who may bear some liability in a premise’s liability accident.
