Wylie Premises Liability Lawyer

If a property owner invites you onto their property, you should expect the environment and conditions to be safe. Many individuals unexpectedly encounter hazardous conditions on a property. In some cases, the property owners are aware of these dangerous conditions but failed to maintain the premises in a safe manner. If you suffered an injury on a negligent owner’s property, consider meeting with a skilled Wylie premises liability lawyer. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney could examine the factors surrounding your injury and work to hold the property owner accountable. Call and schedule an appointment to start discussing legal strategies that may be applicable to your case.

Types of Premises Liability Claims

There are many types of properties that an accident can occur on and become subject to a liability claim. Premises liability claims can arise from events that occur at gas stations, shopping malls, restaurants, parks, hotels, and homeowners’ backyards. In these various settings, owners must exercise care in maintaining their property and repairing any dangerous conditions.

A person may have grounds for a liability case if they were injured in situations including:

  • Pool accidents
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Fires
  • Spilled liquids or chemicals
  • Defective stairs or escalator
  • Slip and fall accidents

A dedicated Wylie premises liability lawyer could provide accident victims with detailed information about the various types of liability claims. This could substantially and positively impact a person’s case in court.

Duties of Property Owners

The duty of care which a property owner owes to an individual who enters their property depends on the status of the individual. In Wylie, visitors are classified as invitees, licensees, or trespassers.

Individuals who are categorized as invitees or licensees have the owner’s consent to be on the property. A property owner owes a duty of care to both invitees and licensees, but they owe the highest duty of care to invitees. Property owners are required to warn invitees about any unsafe environment or condition and also work to fix these hazards. In Texas, property owners may be able to escape liability if they warn invitees and licensees of any hazardous conditions.

Property owners’ duties to trespassers vary greatly from the duties owed to lawful entrants. Rather than owing a duty to make the premises safe or warn of dangers, a property owner must only refrain from intentionally injuring a trespasser.

Determining whether a property owner breached the duty of care, causing injuries to another person, typically involves investigation. It may be important to find out how long the dangerous condition existed on the property, whether other individuals sustained injuries related to the dangerous condition in the past, and whether the property owner provided any warnings regarding the condition.

Injuries in Liability Cases

The common injuries sustained in premises liability cases can include broken bones, soft tissue injuries, lacerations, bruises, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries. The injuries sustained in these cases can vary so widely that immediate medical care is recommended for diagnosis and treatment. Some injured individuals may require weeks, months, or years of medical treatment.

Compliance with medical professionals’ orders and recommendations may be beneficial both to the individual’s health and the accident-related claim. A premises liability lawyer in Wylie could speak to medical professionals and review medical records relating to the liability claim.

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
