Houston Premises Liability Lawyers Protecting Your Rights

We can fight for the money you deserve if you get hurt on someone else’s property

Public and private property owners have a responsibility to properly care for their property. Otherwise, people can get seriously injured. This is especially true at swimming pools, restaurants, and other public places. When property owners fail to take the necessary precautions and someone gets hurt, they should be held responsible for their actions.

That’s where we come in. Our Houston premises liability attorneys at Smith & Hassler can fight for your rights every step of the way. We know what to do because we’ve been doing this work for more than 30 years in Texas. Our job is to make sure you get the maximum compensation for your premises liability accident.

What does premises liability mean?

Premises liability is a legal term used to describe a property owner’s responsibility to maintain their property. When they fail to do so, it’s our job to prove they failed to protect the public’s best interests. Among the general standards in a premises liability case are determinations that show:

  • The party responsible for the property created the condition.
  • The condition was known but no steps were taken to correct it.
  • Enough time had gone by for the responsible party to become aware of the condition that it should have been corrected.

What type of premises liability case are you dealing with?

Premises liability cases in Texas can cover a wide range. Some of the most common – and most complicated – premises liability cases we handle at our Houston law firm include:

Whatever type of premises liability case you’re dealing with in Texas, make sure you take your case seriously right from the start. Talk to an attorney who knows the law and knows what to do. Make sure you talk to us.

What are common premises liability injuries?

Premises liability injuries often include:

  • Fractures and broken bones, especially hip, wrist, and ankle fractures.
  • Head injuries, including concussions and severe traumatic brain injuries.
  • Spinal cord injuries and possibly paralysis in severe cases.
  • Cuts, bruises, and contusions.
  • Bacterial infections.
  • Complications from toxic exposure.

What are premises liability case examples?

Smith & Hassler has handled a variety of premises liability cases and helped clients get the compensation they deserve. In one example of our case results, we recovered $160k for a client who sustained a lumbar disc injury after slipping and falling in a retail store. The accident was caused by a liquid spill.

What makes premises liability cases in Texas so complicated?

You might think you don’t even need a lawyer if you or a family member got hurt on someone else’s property. All you do is tell the property owner or their insurance company and they’ll take care of everything, right? Don’t be so sure. Often, cases can become very complicated for many different reasons, including:

  • The property owner denies doing anything wrong.
  • The hazard that caused your injury is not obvious.
  • The property owner lies about the property conditions.
  • The property owner destroys evidence related to your case.
  • The property owner’s insurance company denies your claim.

Insurance companies often fight hard to deny premises liability claims. They know your case could be worth a lot of money. That’s why they’ll do everything to deny your case. That’s not right. That’s why we want to meet with you.

How much do premises liability settlements pay?

There is no fixed amount of money you can get from your premises liability claim. Settlement amounts depend on the specifics of your case. This includes the severity of your injury and how it impacts your life.

To ensure that you get the right amount of compensation, a premises liability lawyer at Smith & Hassler will accurately calculate your economic damages (e.g., medical expenses and lost wages) and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. We’ll negotiate with insurance companies for a fair settlement to ensure that you’re fully compensated.

What if a premises liability settlement can’t be reached?

In most cases, insurance companies will settle before going to trial. However, not all insurance companies are willing to settle. In this case, the attorneys at Smith & Hassler will be prepared to file a premises liability lawsuit on your behalf.

What should I do after my premises liability accident?

If you or a loved one has been injured in a premises liability accident on someone else’s property, we recommend taking the following steps to protect your rights.

  • Seek immediate medical attention. Your health matters most.
  • Don’t talk to the property owner. Anything you say could be used to deny your claim.
  • Don’t talk about your accident with other people. The less you say, the better.
  • Don’t post anything on social media about your accident. Insurance companies carefully read your posts and try to use this information against you.
  • Contact our law firm as soon as possible. We can review your case (free of charge) and explain your legal options.
