Premises liability is the body of Texas law that is commonly referred to as “slips, trips and falls.” Dangerous premises can lead to serious injuries. A common misconception is that a property owner is automatically responsible for any injuries on the premises they own and that their insurance policy will cover it. However, under Texas law, a premises owner is only responsible for injuries caused by a dangerous condition on the property if the property owner knew, or should have known, about the dangerous condition and failed to make it safe or to warn people about it.
Proving that the premises owner “knew or should have known” about a dangerous condition is often challenging.
