Injured On Someone Else’s Property? We Can Help.
When you walk into a grocery store or enter a neighbor’s home, you expect to be reasonably safe from harm. You certainly don’t expect to fall because of a crumbling front step or slip in an unmarked puddle and hurt yourself. But what happens if you do get hurt?
In Texas, premises liability laws hold property owners accountable for ensuring their property is reasonably free of potential hazards. At Gamez Law Firm, we help individuals in the San Antonio area seek compensation after being injured because of dangerous property.
Proving Negligence In A Premises Liability Matter
Being injured on someone else’s property is not enough to prove that the property owner or resident was negligent. Instead, you must prove three things:
- The property owner could have prevented the accident.
- The property owner had a duty to maintain reasonably safe premises.
- The property owner or an employee should have known about the hazard, did know about the hazard but didn’t address it, or caused the hazard and didn’t address it.
While some cases are clear-cut, others require skill and experience to prove that negligence occurred. At Gamez Law Firm, our attorneys will fight to help you obtain the compensation you deserve after an accident.
