Pearland, TX Premises Liability Lawyer

A Premises Liability Lawyer can Help You Recover Compensation After an Accident on Another’s Property

When a person is involved in an accident and suffers an injury, it is not always on their own property. In fact, often the opposite is true: The injury occurs on the property of another, and often times due to a hazardous condition upon that property. At the law offices of Scott M. Brown & Associates, our Pearland, TX premises liability lawyers can help you understand your rights if you have been injured on another’s property.

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is a legal theory that holds property owners liable for injuries to others that occur on their properties when:

  • The injury was caused as the result of a dangerous condition;
  • The property owner knew or should have known of the condition; and
  • The property owner failed to remedy the condition within the appropriate amount of time, or provide adequate warning of the condition.

The above duty of care–to remedy known hazards on a property within a reasonable amount of time or provide warning of those hazards while remedy is being pursued–is owed to all those who enter a property legally. Property owners owe no duty of care to trespassers other than to refrain from causing willful and wanton harm.
