Understanding Premises Negligence
A landowner’s failure to keep their premises in a safe condition can result in a variety of injuries. This holds true for residential and commercial property owners. Slip and falls are typical premises injuries because the landowner allowed conditions on the property to deteriorate or did not clean up a slipping hazard.
Other Types of Premises Negligence
- Code violations
- Criminal activity
- Dogs running loose
- Lack of security
- Liquor liability
- Bulk junk items—potentially harmful to children
- Overgrown vegetation creating a hazard, such as obscuring driveways
- Pollution and toxic substances
Property Owners and Occupiers: Responsibilities
In Texas, it is the responsibility of the landowner or the renters of the property to adhere to codes and maintain a safe environment. If someone is injured at a rental property, it is not usually the landlord’s fault unless the accident occurred due to hidden conditions of which the tenant was unaware.
