After A Premises Liability Claim, What Are My Rights?
As property owners, we have a legal obligation to provide a reasonably safe environment. When someone gets injured, they may try to hold you accountable. What people don’t realize is the fact that they have the right to a defense. At Owen & Fazio, P.C., we have worked with clients throughout Texas and Oklahoma. With years of experience, we bring tailored strategies to those who need them most. We pay attention to the details and will do what it takes to represent your best interests.
Advocating For Our Clients And Their Property
Understanding your options when it comes to a claim is best done with the help of a knowledgeable lawyer. Whether you are a business owner, rent an apartment or own a home, you could be found liable for injuries sustained on your property. When looking at your case, our team of attorneys examines every aspect. Unfortunately, many people make an accusation because they think nobody will do the research. They often think people won’t fight back and they’ll get an easy settlement. We look at video footage, talk to witnesses and consult with experts so that no stone is left unturned.
In some situations, the person accusing you of negligence is aware of an issue and their personal injury claim can be thrown out. For example, say there was a spill in the grocery store you own. You put signs out, alerting those passing by to avoid the area. Before you could clean the mess up in a reasonable amount of time, someone walks through the signs and slips on the floor. They blame their injury on you. This is unreasonable and unfair. Our goal is to show that once you became aware of an issue, you clearly displayed signage or communication and took action to fix it as soon as you were able.
