The first part of premise liability is proving that the plaintiff was injured in a property that was neither their home nor workplace. The injured party could be a customer or client of a store or office, diner at a restaurant, guest in a hotel or resort, or visitor at a hospital or nursing facility. They could also be invited as a guest of someone else’s home. The general rule of thumb is that the place where the injury occurred can be any type of commercial or private space. Someone else’s sidewalk or yard or the side of a building or parking lot are already considered a premise.
The second and considerably challenging half is proving that the accused failed to safeguard the well-being of the victim in their premise and is therefore responsible for the injury. Whether the purpose of being in the property was personal or professional reasons, the owner, tenant, or maintenance provider can be held liable for any injury or death that occurred within the premise.
Under Texas Law, the following are the elements required to successfully prove up a premise liability case:

We are paid a portion of the settlement fee or compensation given to them after we have successfully handled the case.

We offer the same arrangements to you once you hire us as your Dallas and Fort Worth personal injury attorney.
Under the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, the victim is entitled to punitive damages (also known as exemplary damages) if they can prove that without a doubt the accused caused the personal injury due to negligence, malicious intent, or some form of fraud. Aside from receiving just compensation (for medical bills, pain and suffering, to name a few), you, too, can also receive more money if your premise liability attorney can convince the jury that you deserve it and the defendant should pay more as additional punishment. The cap for exemplary damages in Texas is $200,000.
