Premises Liability Attorneys in Victoria
Helping the Injured in Texas & Nationwide
If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to bring a claim for premises liability. Did the property owner fail to make a repair? Did the business owner neglect to provide protection against crime? Did the homeowner fail to warn you about an unsafe condition?
Some law firms do not take premises liability cases because they are not willing to use the extensive resources that those cases require. Cole, Cole, Easley & Sciba, P.C. has the resources on hand. We are dedicated to protecting the rights of our injured clients, no matter how complex their case.
We handle cases including, but not limited to:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Trip and fall accidents
- Negligent security and inadequate security
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
- Boiling water
- Accidents on construction sites
- Inadequate property maintenance
Recovering in a Premises Liability Case
In order to recover on a premises liability claim, you have to prove that:
- There was an unreasonably dangerous condition on the premises; and
- The owner or occupier knew or should have known of the condition; and
- The owner or occupier failed to warn of the condition or make the condition safe.
If the property owner did not know of the dangerous condition and the condition was not obvious (such as a broken step), you probably do not have a claim for premises liability. Texas law is strict here. You need documentation of the condition and evidence showing that the owner knew — or should have known — of the condition.
Some owners fix the condition to cover up the accident or avoid future problems. Under the right circumstances, our attorneys and experienced investigators can go out to the accident site to take photographs of the condition before it changes. We can also hire experts to inspect the premises and determine whether they are up to code.
