Premises Liability Attorney
Representing Houston Residents
If a person is injured while living in or visiting another person’s property and can prove the owner’s negligence caused the injury, that owner may be deemed liable, or legally responsible, for the harm.
Harm resulting from this type of injury can take a variety of forms, including financial hardship arising from medical bills or lost earnings, emotional distress, or permanent physical disability, including disfigurement. You may have grounds for a lawsuit if you sustained any of the injuries just mentioned, and you believe it was due to the negligence of the owner of the premises.
Premises liability lawsuits can result from the following situations:
- Falling merchandise in a warehouse or store strikes and injures a customer
- Flaking lead paint in an old apartment causes lead poisoning in the children who consume the paint chips
- A dog mauls or bites a neighbor
- A customer trips and falls on uneven pavement in the parking lot
