Corpus Christi Premises Liability Lawyers
When entering another person’s property, you typically assume that you will be walking into a safe environment. The owners of most properties, whether commercial or residential, aim to keep them in good condition in order to avoid accidents wherever possible. However, if an owner is negligent of their duties, the risk of injury greatly increases and you may be put in serious danger. An accident caused by negligence may result in injuries ranging from lacerations and broken bones to severe illness, head injuries, or in the worst cases, death. These injuries can be devastating and may result in a significant monetary loss if you require medical treatment.
You should not have to suffer a physical and financial burden caused by another person’s irresponsible behavior. The Corpus Christi premises liability lawyers at Brunkenhoefer, P.C. Injury Attorneys are prepared to fight for your right to a safe environment. Our experienced lawyers are ready to make your case and help you fight for the compensation you may need.
Types of Premises Liability
The property owner may be held responsible for your injury under several circumstances. The primary component of a premises liability claim is proving that the owner’s negligence directly caused your injury. This may include behavior such as allowing areas on the property to fall into disrepair, failing to use appropriate signage to indicate dangers, or providing inadequate safety and security measures. Additionally, you must indicate that you were not acting dangerously or irresponsibly when your accident occurred.
Of the many possible causes of an injury on another person’s property, the most common include:
- Slip and fall
- Elevator/escalator Injuries
- Porch collapse
- Stair collapse
- Lead paint poisoning
- Mercury poisoning
- Toxic mold
- Swimming pool injuries
- Inadequate security
If you have suffered an injury in any of these scenarios, the strength of your claim also depends on whether you were an invitee, licensee, or trespasser on the property. An invitee is a person who is welcome on the property, such as when you are a customer at a store or restaurant, and a licensee enters a property as a social guest or with the express consent of the owner. In these cases, the property owner is legally responsible for injuries you may incur. However, if you enter a property as a trespasser, with no legal right to be on the property, the owner is no longer responsible for your safety.
