Premises Liability Lawyer in Sugar Land

Serving Clients in Throughout Texas

Under Texas law, an owner, lessee, or occupant of the property may be liable if someone is injured. A landowner’s duty of care depends on the relationship between the property owner and the injured person.

A claim for damages under premises liability requires intricate knowledge of property law, negligence standards, and personal injury. Without zealous legal representation, it will be difficult for you to get the maximum compensation allowed by law.

If you were injured on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to recovery. Do not wait until it is too late. Contact the Karam Law Office for a free consultation. Get the passionate, committed attention that your case deserves.

Limitations on Landowners’ Liability

Chapter 75 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code limits a landowner’s liability for injuries that occur on their property under certain circumstances. For example, “an owner, lessee or occupant of agricultural land (1) does not owe a duty of care to a trespasser on the land; and (2) is not liable for any injury to a trespasser on the land, except for willful or wanton acts or gross negligence by the owner lessee or other occupant of agricultural land.”

Understanding landowners’ liability is essential to recovering the maximum compensation available in your case. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you need to consult an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you call, the sooner you can get recovery for your damages.

Common Types of Premises Liability Cases

  • Slip and Fall
  • A dog bite or attack
  • Pool drowning
  • Poor maintenance or inadequate security

Determining Liability in a Premises Liability Case

Premises liability is a nuanced area of the law. Generally, premises liability is determined by the duty owed by a property owner to the injured person, and most often, it is based on negligence. However, determining if a landowner should be held liable for injuries on their property will likely depend on the legal status of the injured person. Texas has established three legal status with differing levels of duty owed by the landlord.

Invitee

An invitee is “one who enters the property of another with the owner’s knowledge for the mutual benefit of both.” Employees, business patrons, meter readers, and tenants are considered invitees.

Under Texas law, a licensee is “a person who enters the land with permission for his or her own benefit.” Examples of a licensee, as discussed by Texas A&M AgriLife, include social guests and salespeople.

Trespasser

trespasser is “a person who enters the land of another without any legal right, express or implied.”
