In the San Antonio and Brownsville areas, there are a group of laws that help determine liability for any injuries sustained while on the property, or premise, of another person or corporation. These laws are referred to as premise liability laws. They basically state that whoever owns land or structure must use reasonable care to make sure that the premise is safe for others. Every state interprets this law in their own way; however, if you’ve been injured in the San Antonio or Brownsville areas on someone else’s premises, you should call the experienced attorneys of the Begum Law Group.
The premises liability attorneys of the Begum Law Group have represented many people who have been injured as the result of negligence on someone else’s premises. Throughout their experience, they’ve seen many injuries that commonly occur on the premises of others.
These injuries include:
- Slip and fall injuries from poorly maintained building and structures
- Slip and fall injuries on public paths such as sidewalks
- Attacks by animals on private property
- Drowning on private property
- Electrical shock, burns and death from faulty wiring
- Building collapse or balcony collapses
While premise liability injuries can vary, the majority of them are slips and falls. Victims of slips and falls can suffer from internal injuries, broken bones, brain injury, damage to spinal cord, and possibly even death. These accidents can be catastrophic situations that lead to permanent physical and emotional damage. Our lawyers understand the damaging effects of a premise liability injury and believe that you deserve to be compensated.
While premises liability law may seem straightforward, there are reasons why a property owner might not be liable. Reasonable care in premises liability can easily be proven if the owner did simple tasks such as marking the hazard or limiting access to the area. If it can be proven that the owner did not know about the hazard or that the injured party was trespassing, they may also not be liable.
