What qualifies as a valid premises liability claim in Texas?

When someone is looking to file a premises liability claim against a negligent property owner, they will have to hire an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can examine the situation and determine whether your injury meets various qualifications. To start, you must prove that the property knew or should have known about the unsafe property conditions, failed to address them in a timely manner, and that you were injured and sustained significant damages as a result.

What kind of compensation can I receive in a premises liability claim?

The two main types of damages are economic damages and non-economic damages. Non-economic damages deal with emotional damages, such as the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of consortium, and more, while economic damages deal with monetary damages, such as the cost of surgeries, overnight stays in hospitals, the cost of rehabilitation, and more.

How long can I wait to file a premises liability claim in Texas?

When someone is injured in an accident, it is critical that they do not wait to file their personal injury claim, as there is a statute of limitations in place that regulates the amount of time individuals will have to take legal action against the liable party. The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Texas is, generally, two years, which means that you cannot wait any longer than two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the liable party. If you do, you will most likely be barred from suing.
