What to Do After an Injury on Another’s Property: (979) 258-6688

When a property owner fails to maintain reasonably safe conditions, slip and fall injuries may occur and the owner may be found liable. Due to the complexities of Texas premises liability law, it is important to seek advice from an experienced attorney. At Brian C. Gutierrez, PLLC, our premises liability lawyer in Bryan, TX, has vast knowledge and more than a decade of experience in this area of law.

Premises Liability Law in Texas

Although most people immediately think of slipping and falling, there are actually a few different types of premises liability. Injuries may occur due to a dangerous condition on the property that the owner knew about and failed to fix, when an employee acts in a negligent manner and causes harm to a customer, or when the property owner fails to post warning signs for hazardous areas.

Proving Liability

In order for a premises liability claim to be successful, it must be proven that the property owner either didn’t know about the dangerous condition or did nothing wrong. It is essential to show evidence that the property owner knew about the condition prior to the injury. In order to give your case the best chance of success, you should document as much evidence as possible and contact an attorney with specific knowledge and experience in premises liability law.

At the time of the injury, collect as much information as possible, such as:

  • Get the names of any witnesses that were present at the time of the injury
  • Write down the names of any employees that were in the immediate area
  • If you speak with any other employees, get their names too
  • Request that employees provide statements in writing and complete an incident report
  • Take picture of the dangerous condition
  • Photograph injuries
  • Request that video footage from store security cameras be saved

In any contact with employees or company representatives, do not apologize, take any responsibility for the accident, or mention that you are going to call an attorney. Company representatives or their attorneys may attempt to get you to provide a recorded statement or accept a settlement offer. These people are not looking out for your best interests. You should already have an attorney advising you before you make any moves towards filing a claim.

If you were injured on someone else’s property, call (979) 258-6688 as soon as possible to get the legal advice you need.
