Types of 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 include:

  • 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
  • Vermin

The most severe premises injuries include burns, broken bones, head trauma or spinal cord damage. For the victim, there is pain and suffering, along with medical expenses and lost wages. There is the potential for permanent physical and/or mental issues.

Property Owners/Occupiers Responsibilities

In Texas, it is the landowner or the renters of the property’s responsibility 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.
