Injured due to a premises issue or slip & fall? Contact Montgomery Law today at 1-833-720-6090.
If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall, or as the result of unkempt or defective conditions at a store, event, or while on someone’s property, you may have a valid premises liability claim.
Recovering compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering is not a simple task when it comes to a slip and fall or other type of premises liability claim. Oftentimes, those responsible for dealing with such incidents are difficult to contact, never return your calls, and can be outright unhelpful and unwilling to even hear you out.
When you’ve suffered a preventable injury due to a property-owner’s failure to keep you reasonably safe from preventable harm, you deserve to be compensated for every dime you’ve lost as a result.
The Dallas product liability attorneys at Montgomery Law are here to help. We’ll make sure you get the medical attention you need, help valuate your damages, and file a demand on your behalf seeking the compensation you truly deserve. We prepare every case as if it were going to trial, and we never charge a dime for our services unless we win your case.
It’s important to discuss your case with an attorney in order to learn about your rights, as well as how they may be able to help you with your claim. For a free consultation with our Dallas premises liability attorneys, call us today at (833) 720-6090 or send us an email.
Customers are Owed the Most Protection
Your rights as a victim depend on the circumstances of your case. Property owners are not responsible for every injury that occurs on their premises, and even when things are done according to the law, people can be injured due to little-to-no fault of their own.
Visitors to a property can be categorized into three major groups, all of which are afforded a different duty of care.
- Trespassers are defined as those on the premises without the permission of the owner. Property owners owe trespassers no duty to find or remedy hazards on the property, but may be required to warn known or anticipated trespassers of deadly conditions on the land which are known to the owner (often via a posted warning). They may also open themselves up to liability if they cause intentional harm to the trespasser by setting traps.
- Licensees are those who are invited onto the premises by the property owner for purposes other than financial gain (e.g., social guests, non-customer visitors). Property owners owe licensees a duty to warn them of known risks on the premises that the visitor could not reasonably be expected to realize the existence of, or extent of the danger.
- Invitees are those on the premises for the financial benefit of the property owner. Basically, invitees can be thought of as customers and/or paying guests. Property owners and event planners owe paying patrons the highest duty of care, including routinely inspecting the premises for dangerous conditions, warning guests of any known dangers, and fixing any hazards or otherwise exercising reasonable care to protect guests from preventable harm.
Types of Premises Liability Claims
Oftentimes, victims don’t even realize that the property owner has a legal responsibility to look for, warn visitors of, and remedy any hazards on the premises. Premises liability claims encompass a wide variety of situations and locations, many of which are listed below.
