An elderly woman brought her car to the mechanic for an oil change. Unfortunately, the shop was darkly lit and customers were not kept out of the mechanics’ workspace. As the woman walked across the shop, she slipped and fell into an unmarked oil change pit.

Premises Liability Lawsuits — When Dangerous Conditions Cause Harm
Lawyers commonly refer to slip-and-fall lawsuits as “premises liability” claims. In these lawsuits, legal action is taken against the property owner. Under Texas law, property owners have a responsibility to guests on their properties. That responsibility depends on the nature of the relationship but, generally, property owners must take certain actions that prevent harm from occurring.
If they fail to do so and if harm occurs as a result, property owners have the duty to compensate injury victims for that harm. This is true in many different situations, like when store owners fail to clean up after a spill or when hotel owners fail to notify guests that they are located in neighborhoods known for violent crimes.
If you have been injured on another’s property, you may have the right to compensation. Our premises liability attorneys can help you understand how Texas law may apply to your case, and we can help you decide what action to take. At the Jim Ross Law Group, P.C., we believe in providing straightforward legal advice so that you can make an informed decision after a personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one.
