Premises Liability Attorneys in Dallas, Texas
Filing 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.
Factors to Prove a Premises Liability Claim
Premises liability laws differ from state to state. However, the following conditions must be proved in order to hold a premises owner responsible for a visitor’s damages:
- A condition on the premises posed some type of reasonable risk for injury
- The property owner or occupier should have been aware of the hazard
- The property owner or occupier’s negligence caused the injury
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.
