Do You Have a Premises Liability Claim?

A premises liability claim is a chance for an injured property visitor to seek financial reimbursement for losses associated with an accident. It requires clear and convincing evidence that proves that the property owner was negligent with at least a 51 percent likelihood. Negligence means that the property owner committed an act or omission that a reasonably prudent owner would not have in the same or similar circumstances.

In general, the elements of a premises liability lawsuit are:

  • The property owner had a duty of care to maintain a reasonably safe premises for the plaintiff.
  • The owner had actual or constructive knowledge of a hazard or defect on the property.
  • The owner carelessly failed to remedy the defect in a timely manner.
  • Compensable losses were suffered by the victim, such as injuries and medical bills.
  • The property owner’s negligence was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s losses.

If you suffered any type of injury or a loved one passed away because of a hazard that existed on someone else’s property – including a grocery store, big-box store, department store, financial institution, school, workplace or a friend’s house – you may be eligible for financial compensation through a premises liability claim. Our attorneys in Houston can listen to your story and let you know if your case has merit.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Premises Liability Accident Attorney?

At the Doan Law Firm, we take on cases on a contingency fee basis. You do not pay our law firm for legal representation unless and until we secure a favorable settlement or judgement on your behalf. If we win your case, your lawyer will receive an agreed-upon percentage of the final settlement awarded by the court. Under most circumstances, your lawyer will cover any costs they feel are necessary to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.

The contingency fee’s exact percentage will be mutually agreed upon before you retain the services of a law firm. Our attorneys believe in the importance of complete transparency when it comes to pricing and will always explain the precise percentage we charge before we begin working on your case. When a favorable settlement or judgment is reached, the contingency fee will be deducted directly from that amount, meaning that you will never need to pay our firm out-of-pocket for services received.

What Should You do if You’re Injured on an Unsafe Property?

We know firsthand that experiencing a premises liability accident can be an incredibly stressful experience. To help you deal with the aftermath of your accident, we put the following steps together for you to follow:

  • Seek medical care: Even if you feel like you escaped serious harm, you should still visit your doctor or an emergency room to get checked out for any undetected injuries. In some cases, adrenaline may mask the symptoms of serious wounds for hours or even days, thus delaying the medical care you may require.
  • Report the accident: It’s essential to alert the premises manager or property owner to the unsafe condition that caused your accident. They can immediately take steps to remove the hazard and make the space safer for other people.
  • Obtain witness information & document the scene: If there were any witnesses that saw your accident occur, obtain their contact information. This can be incredibly useful if you decide to pursue a Houston premises liability lawsuit. When there are no witnesses, your lawyer may be able to obtain security footage that shows your accident. You should take photos of the accident scene, if safely possible. Document anything that may have played a role in your injury. If, for example, you slipped on a spill in a grocery store, take photos of the spilled liquid on the floor.
  • Write down what happened: While the memories of the incident are still fresh, document what happened. As time passes, your memories of the accident may fade, so it’s essential to record this information as soon as possible. Write down as much detail as possible, including who was with you at the time of the accident, exactly where it occurred, and what circumstances led up to your injury.
  • Contact an attorney: You should always speak to a Houston premises liability attorney after an accident to discuss your legal options. We offer free initial consultations and are happy to discuss your unique case in detail.
