Proving Negligence in a Texas Premises Liability Case

In order to receive compensation in Texas premises liability case, the plaintiff must prove the owners negligence by proving the four elements of a premises liability claim. 

The four elements of premises liability include:

  • The property or landowner had prior knowledge of a dangerous property condition.

  • The condition posed an unreasonable level of danger or risk to others.

  • The property or landowner failed to adequately warn visitors of the condition or did not reasonably reduce or eliminate the condition.

  • The injuries sustained by the plaintiff were directly caused by the property or landowner’s negligence.

While it is legally permissible for you to handle a premise liability claim on your own, it is not recommended. When seeking to prove the negligence of a property owner, it is crucial to hire a team of legal professionals who can build a strong portfolio of evidence to support your claim.

It is also important to place the oversight of your case in the hands of attorneys who have years of experience negotiating with insurance companies and who can help prevent them from taking advantage of you.
