How Do Premises Liability Accidents Happen?
Premises liability accidents often happen without warning. One second, you’re thinking about the task you’re trying to accomplish while walking around a store or moving through a lobby, and in an instant you’re hurt. Unfortunately, if the accident happens in a public setting, it can be a common reaction to want to brush it off so others will stop looking and you can get back to your day. However, the adrenaline rush from the accident can mask injury symptoms. You may think you’re fine, but then discover you’ve sustained injuries.
According to Texas law, in a premises liability case, a property owner needs to “use ordinary care to reduce or eliminate an unreasonable risk of harm on the premises that the owner should know about.” A crucial part of our investigation will include finding out how your accident occurred. Returning to the scene of your accident could provide insight into what happened, in addition to accounts of the accident and the kind of injuries you sustained. Premises liability accidents usually happen because the property owner failed to keep their property safe. This can show in a few different ways. Some common examples of premises liability accidents include:
- Uneven or cracked sidewalks
- Leaks, spills, flooding
- Construction areas lacking signs or barriers
- Ice and snow
- Torn or unanchored carpets
- Unstable railings
- Exposed wires
Once our lawyers in Midland understand what happened, we’ll analyze how the injuries have affected you. We’ll look at your projected recovery time or if the injuries could have long-term consequences. No matter what, our premises liability attorneys will seek full and fair compensation for you.
Don't wait. We're ready to fight.
What Are Examples of Premises Liability Injuries?
The injuries from an accident can be severe. If someone loses their balance in a slip and fall, they could hit their head and sustain a traumatic brain injury, which could cause issues with communication, memory, and thinking. Damage to the spinal cord or bones is also a major concern. Construction areas could have risks of falling objects or areas under maintenance could have exposed wires that pose the threat of electrocution.
Your injury could take weeks or months to heal. In more severe cases, you may have sustained a catastrophic injury, which could prevent you from returning to the workforce. Adjusting to life after this injury can be emotional and will take time. What you don’t need is concern for how you’re going to afford your medical bills, future care, and how you’re going to sustain a living if you cannot return to work. That’s where we come in.
The Midland attorneys at Buckingham & Vega Law Firm will estimate your losses and what you would have earned had you been able to return to work. Keeping these financial damages in mind, we’ll also consider your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as a result of the accident. With these facts, we’ll calculate a fair amount you should seek as a monetary award.
What Should You Do After an Injury?
Your actions after a premises liability accident could help your future claim.
Following these steps will help establish when and how you were hurt and how it affected your life.
