What is Premises Liability?
If you have been injured on another person’s property, whether in a slip and fall or otherwise, you most likely now require financial compensation to heal. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Odessa personal injury attorney to learn more about premises liability claims and how we can help you fight for your right to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I know if I have a valid premises liability claim?
The key to winning any personal injury claim is proving that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. In Texas, though it is more difficult to win premises liability claims than in other states, it is still possible. To win a premises liability claim in Texas, you will have to hire an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can gather and present evidence on your behalf to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe condition, failed to timely fix it, and that you were injured and incurred significant damages as a result.
What do I need to win a premises liability claim?
If you are looking to sue someone for injuries sustained on their property, you and your attorney will have to collect a wide array of evidence. Security camera footage of the accident, medical documents, witness statements, pictures of the unsafe condition, police reports, and more are all great ways to prove your personal injury claim.
How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in Texas?
If you are someone who has been injured on another person’s property, you may feel as though you should wait to see if your injuries heal before taking legal action against that person, especially if that person is your friend or relative. However, the truth is, this is often a bad idea, as there is a statute of limitations in place for personal injury claims in Texas. Since the statute of limitations is, generally, two years, you will, generally, have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible for your injuries. If you wait past the two-year mark, there is a very good chance you will be barred from suing. Our firm can begin the claims process today. All you have to do is give us a call.
