If you have been injured while at a retail store in Texas, you may be aware of how devastating the aftermath of an accident that might have been prevented can be. What you may not know is that you are not alone. Sadly, thousands of people suffer every year in accidents that occur in various retail stores. While this type of negligence may seem staggering, the law provides protections through premises liability for victims to seek adequate compensation.
These types of accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. In some instances, a property manager or owner might have failed to make adequate repairs, such as fixing broken floor tiles. Furthermore, failing to warn customers of potential dangers like a slippery floor can cause one of the most prevalent types of accidents — a slip-and-fall.
If you have been injured in a parking lot or through an accident other than a slip-and-fall, your accident is no less valid. Property owners must maintain a safe environment for their customers, and when they don’t they can be held liable for any resulting injuries. This applies to anywhere on the owner’s property, and not simply in the building or nearby parking lot.
Pursuing a premises liability claim can often be essential to your overall recovery after being injured. This type of claim is usually filed against the property owner who failed to provide an adequately safe environment for Texas consumers.
