Legally, property owners in Farmers Branch are required to keep their property in a safe condition that will not hurt others. However, not all property owners do keep their property safe. If they don’t, and you are injured by their failure, you may be able to sue for damages.
There are a variety of dangerous conditions that can lead to a premises liability lawsuit. Some examples of dangerous conditions on property that can cause accidents or medical issues include:
– Cracked and broken sidewalks or parking lots
– Slippery substances on the floor
– Dangerous elevators or escalators
– Negligent security
– Lack of security cameras
– Lead-based paint
– Broken steps
– Dangerous animals on the premises
– Failure to supervise at day cares or schools
– Worn or raised carpeting and floor boards
Normally, in order to determine liability for damages, you must be able to prove that the property owner was responsible for the unsafe condition and knew or should have known about the condition but failed to take measures to correct it.
If you have had an accident because of a dangerous property condition in Farmers Branch, you should speak with a personal injury attorney right away. Your attorney should promptly do an investigation into the circumstances of the accident, as well as determining any potentially liable parties.
