What You Need to Know About Inadequate Security Accidents in Texas

If you are someone who was recently injured due to inadequate security in Texas, there is a very good chance that you now require financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Our firm can help. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more about inadequate security accidents and how we can help you if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are some examples of insufficient security?

There are various examples of inadequate security, though the most common that we see are as follows:

  • Failing to install security cameras.
  • Installing security cameras, but failing to maintain them and ensure they are always up and running.
  • Neglecting to have someone monitoring security cameras.
  • Not having security guards where there should be.
  • Improperly training security guards so they are incapable of effectively doing their jobs.
  • Not having alarms in elevators in case of an emergency.

What should I do if I am injured on someone else’s property?

If you are injured on someone else’s property, you should take several steps to document the incident, especially if there is no surveillance footage of the accident to speak of. The first thing you should do after an accident is to call the police, and, if you were injured in a store, you should notify the store owner of your injury. From here, you should ask anyone who saw your accident for their name and phone number. Next, you should take pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident. Finally, after you receive medical treatment, you must retain the services of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can work to obtain all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Houston?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Houston is, under most circumstances, two years. This means that you are granted two years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. You cannot make the mistake of waiting any longer than two years, for if you do, you will most likely lose your right to sue. Our firm is ready to get the ball rolling today–all you have to do is ask.
