Premises Liability

Premises liability (property owner liability) happens when there is an accident or incident that occurs on a third party's property and is caused by a danger known to the owner or manager of the premises. Since premises liability can cover many different situations we hope these examples of premises liability help you understand the concept.

Texas Premises Liability Lawyers

 

Our premises liability lawyers at Rasansky Law Firm believe that punitive damages should be paid by negligent property owners who have a conscious disregard for their customers and tenants. When a property owner breaches their duty of care by failing to provide reasonable security, or at a minimum, notice of a known problem, they should be held responsible for this negligence, not you.

When choosing a premises liability lawyer, look for a law firm with decades of experience handling cases like your own. See the types of cases the Rasansky Law Firm regularly represents below.

Premises Liability: Trip and Fall

A bank has an uneven step up on their premise which is known to cause people to stumble or trip and fall. However, the bank does not put up a sign warning their customers of the uneven spot. This shows negligence on the part of the bank for putting customers at risk of injury from slips, or a trip and fall accident. It is the responsibility of the bank to provide their customers with safe premises in which to do business.

 

Premises Liability: Personal Injury

A shopping center has an area of the parking lot which is remote or shielded from the sight of security personnel. There are known, repeated attempts of robbery in that section of the parking lot. The shopping center does not take action to notify their customers of the dangerous area. A victim suffers personal injury in a robbery or raped in that area because they had not been made aware of the danger on the shopping center's premises. The shopping center showed negligence by not warning customers of this problem.

 

Premises Liability: Slip and Fall

A hotel has a known problem on their premises, such as a ceiling that leaks when it rains. The leak causes a slippery floor area and the hotel does not take steps to warn their customers or fix the known problem. They are liable for slip and fall accidents occurring because of this negligent situation.

 

Premises Liability: Negligence

A restaurant allows the kitchen staff to routinely carry extremely hot items through a section of the restaurant which is close to the kitchen. The restaurant owner realizes that this area is a potential hazard to guests since the hot items have a chance of injuring their customers. A member of the kitchen staff topples the cart the hot items are on, and a customer suffers a burn injury. The restaurant owner is negligent and can be sued for premises liability.

Known unsafe conditions that cause accidents on a premise that are not either fixed in a timely manner or brought to the prominent notice of the customer are potential premise liability cases.

Businesses and property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their customers and other people on their premises. An innocent third party should not be subjected to known, unsafe conditions. The result of a property owner or business' negligence can result in their customers suffering personal injury, a rape or even wrongful death.
