Premises Liability Lawsuits in Texas
Whether you’re at the grocery store, a friend’s house, or even simply picking up your kids from school, accidents can happen. If you were injured, here are some of the questions you may have:
What is a premises liability lawsuit?
When you sue a property owner, it is known as a premises liability lawsuit. Property owners are responsible for ensuring their property is safe at all times, so when people are injured, they very often feel both betrayed and infuriated. If this has happened to you, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation.
How do I know if I am eligible to receive compensation?
To recover financial compensation after an accident, you must first satisfy the burden of proof. Rather simply, this means that you must prove you were injured as a result of another party’s negligence. While this may sound straightforward, it is oftentimes way easier said than done, which is why you must hire an experienced attorney who is ready to collect and use evidence to prove your claim. An attorney may use pictures of the safety hazard that caused your injuries, medical documents, police reports, and more to prove your personal injury claim.
What is the statute of limitations in Texas?
The statute of limitations is the legally acceptable period of time you have from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim against a negligent party. In Texas, the statute of limitations is two years. If you wait past the two-year mark, you will be denied your right to sue. While two years may seem like a long time, the sooner you file, the better. When you choose our firm, we will begin the claims process immediately.
