There is nothing worse than getting hurt because of someone else’s carelessness. Unfortunately, people are injured virtually every day for this very reason here in Texas. We tend to think of accidents occurring on the road, but they also commonly occur on unsafe properties as well. When someone is injured due to dangerous property conditions, they will likely file a premises liability claim against the property owner to get compensated for their injuries. Please continue reading and reach out to a competent San Antonio, Texas slip and fall lawyer from our legal team to learn more about whether you may have a valid premises liability claim and how we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I have a valid premises liability claim?

The first thing you should understand is that accidents involving unsafe property conditions can occur virtually anywhere. They can happen on sidewalks, in restaurants, in stairwells, or even on the job. That said, to recover compensation in a premises liability claim, you’ll need to prove several things. They are as follows:

  • The property owner knew (or should have reasonably known) about the dangerous property conditions.
  • The property owner neglected to fix or eliminate the safety hazard timely.
  • You encountered the safety hazard.
  • The safety hazard was the direct cause of your injury.

Unsafe property conditions can include slippery surfaces, defective stairways, poor lighting, debris or obstacles, poorly-placed merchandise displays, and really any other property feature that poses a risk to those using the property.

How long do I have to file a claim in Texas?

It’s always best to file a personal injury claim sooner, rather than later. The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Texas is, typically, two years, however, it can be even shorter if you were injured on property owned by the state or a municipality.
