Fort Worth Premise Liability Attorneys
Premise Liability cases occur more frequently than you may realize. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), direct medical costs of falls in the United States in 2013 totaled about $34 billion. Slip and falls can cause traumatic injuries, including brain injuries, fractures, and ligament damage.
Often times, many insurance companies will deny liability in a slip and fall matter because they know that the elements for an injured party to prove up are often more difficult. At Mizani Law Firm, we have successfully represented clients injured in a slip and fall and have recovered large six digit settlements on behalf of our clients. In Texas, to successfully prove up a premise liability case, the injured party must show the following:
- A condition existed on the defendant’s property that posed an unreasonable risk of harm to a person present on the property.
- The defendant knew, or should have known in the exercise of ordinary care, that the condition of their property posed an unreasonable risk of harm.
- The defendant should have anticipated that a person on the property would not discover the danger or would fail to protect themselves against it.
- The defendant was negligent in that they created the condition, knew about the condition and negligently failed to correct it or should have known about the condition.
- The plaintiff was injured.
- The condition of the defendant’s property caused the plaintiff’s injury.
