San Antonio Premises Liability Attorneys
Premises Liability Claims in Texas
Premises liability refers to a property owner's legal responsibility to maintain a safe environment. These responsibilities are regulated in a variety of ways, from building zoning codes to safety protocols. When a property owner—either residential or commercial—fails to uphold safety standards and someone gets hurt, that owner may be held responsible for medical and financial damages that result.
At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we help injured victims file claims and recover compensation through trial or settlement. Our opponents—including insurance companies—know our firm well and recognize that we are fully prepared to take matters to court if fair settlements are not offered to our clients.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
If someone has failed to keep their property reasonably safe, they have likely violated a law. Our San Antonio premises liability attorneys want to hold these people accountable for their failure to maintain safe premises.
We handle a wide range of premises liability and unsafe condition cases, including those that involve:
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
- Broken stairs, walkways, or handrails
- Poorly lit walkways
- Lack of caution signage (wet floor signs, construction signs, etc.)
- Improper or poorly maintained exit signage
- Falling merchandise in big box and retail settings
- Negligent security (broken door or window locks, faulty fire alarms or carbon monoxide detectors)
- Animal attacks and dog bites
If you believe a property owner was negligent and that this led to your injuries and resulting damages, do not wait to contact our firm for legal help. In Texas, you typically only have two years from the date of the injury to file our lawsuit, so don’t wait until it’s too late!
Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Texas law requires residential and commercial property owners to ensure their premises are reasonably free of hazards and safe for visitors. When they fail to uphold this duty of care—whether by failing to conduct adequate property maintenance or failing to remove or repair dangerous conditions—innocent people can get seriously hurt, and responsible property owners can be held accountable.
To bring a successful premises liability claim, you will need to prove the following elements:
- The property owner owed you a duty of care (typically, this means you were on the property lawfully at the time of the incident)
- The property owner knew about or reasonably should have known about a dangerous condition that existed on the property
- You were injured and suffered damage due to the dangerous condition
- You were not acting negligently and the dangerous condition was not so open and obvious as to be easily avoidable
Often, property owners will try to argue that a dangerous condition was obvious and, therefore, the visitor could easily recognize the condition and avoid it. However, this is not always the case, nor is it always a solid defense. At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we work to prove that your injuries were not only caused by a property owner’s negligence but also that the property owner should be held accountable.
Seeking Fair Compensation for Your Damages
Dangerous property conditions can lead to all types of accidents and injuries, from accidental drownings in unsafe swimming pools to broken bones and brain injuries caused by slips, trips, and falls. We understand just how important it is that you are fairly compensated for your damages, which is why we fight tirelessly to maximize your recovery.
At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we help our clients seek fair compensation for the following:
- All current and future medical care costs related to the accident
- Current and future lost income, wages, earnings, and other employment benefits
- Pain and suffering, including emotional distress, caused by the accident
- Lost or reduced earning capacity due to temporary or permanent disability
We fight for compensation for your economic and non-economic damages so that you can get back on your feet and begin the healing process. We know that the road to recovery can be long, but having the resources you need to move forward with your life can make all the difference.
