Premises Liability

Offering support after accidents caused by dangerous or defective property conditions

Under Texas law, property owners, landlords and property managers have a duty to reasonably maintain, operate and design property to keep it safe for visitors. They must repair known dangers and post adequate warnings of hazardous conditions that cannot be remedied. When they fail to meet this standard, they may be held liable for injuries on their property.
