Dallas Premises Liability Attorneys

Filing Nationwide Lawsuits for Slip & Fall Accidents and More

Property owners or occupiers (such as a lessee in an office space) typically have a duty to keep their premises in a safe condition. Lawsuits claiming injuries as a result of some unsafe condition are dependent on determining what duty, if any, the property owner or occupier owed the injured individual. For example, a different legal duty may be owed to someone shopping at a grocery store than to someone playing on a swing set at a city park.

At Lyons & Simmons, LLP, we understand that an immediate assessment of the legal relationship of the parties may determine how—if at all—a lawsuit may proceed. Our Dallas premises liability attorneys are familiar with how the application of lesser-known statutes and case law can provide a game-changing position for their clients, such as the intricacies of a “Recreational Use” statute or when an independent contractor’s actions can create landowner liability.

Premises Liability Cases We Handle

At Lyons & Simmons, LLP, our team handles a wide range of premises liability cases, including the following:

  • Severe slip-and-fall accidents
  • Dog bites & attacks
  • Electrocution / shock injuries
  • Drowning & near-drowning accidents
  • Toxic exposure to fumes or dangerous irritants

Third-Party Assaults on Premises

Additionally, our lawyers handle much more severe premises liability cases, including third-party assaults that result from a property owner’s failure to protect their patrons from known hazards.

Property owners that neglect to provide security, or that offer insufficient security, can be held responsible for the victim’s damages if the person sustains harm, personal injury, or physical assault as a result of the poor security.

For example, if a nightclub has a history of robberies, fights, or assaults, then the property owner should provide security guards to protect guests from such dangers. Failure to do so could result in a premises liability lawsuit if a guest is hurt due to the unsafe conditions.

Premises Liability Laws in Texas

In Texas, premises liability holds a landowner, homeowner, or property manager responsible for injuries that occur to others on their property.

Which Accidents are Included in Premises Liability?

Since premises liability is a broad category of personal injury law, it encompasses various different types of accidents, such as slip and falls, dog bites, gym injuries, negligent security, staircase falls, and swimming pool accidents.

Simply getting injured on someone else’s property does not mean you have a premises liability claim on your hands. The following elements must first be met:

  • The property or landowner knew of a dangerous or harmful property condition.
  • The condition posed an unreasonable level of danger to others.
  • The property or landowner failed to properly warn visitors of the dangerous condition.
  • The property or landowner did not reasonably reduce or eliminate the dangerous condition.
  • The injuries sustained by the other person were directly caused by the property or landowner’s negligence.

Typically, any person injured on another person’s property can file a premises liability claim if they suspect negligence played a role. However, there is an exception when the person was trespassing at the time. Even then, trespassers may have the right to compensation if the property owner willfully acted to harm them. When it comes to children, there is the attractive nuisance doctrine—in which a landowner may be held liable if a child trespassing is injured on their property, only if the injury is caused by a hazardous condition or object that is likely to attract a child.
