Know your rights when hazardous conditions cause injuries

Every day San Antonio residents trust that the places they go will be safe and will not present them with serious threats to their health and safety. From the parking lots where they leave their cars to the stores and restaurants where they buy food and goods, individuals encounter a variety of physical spaces that must be maintained by individuals other than themselves.

For the most part individuals are able to negotiate the conditions of the properties they visit without succumbing to serious injuries. However, from time to time visitors to other people's properties may sustain slip and fall injuries, tripping hazards and other preventable instances that may leave them with injuries and accident-related medical bills.

When a person is harmed by hazardous property conditions on another person's property the victim may have a premises liability claim. Not every fall or harm is compensable in these situations, though, because not all individuals who are hurt by others' properties have the right to be on the land or in the buildings where they are harmed. Individuals who have been invited or licensed to be on such properties generally retain such rights while trespassers may not be able to sue for their premises liability losses.

Individual cases of premises liability can vary greatly and the facts of each unique case will dictate a victim's chances of securing financial compensation for their accident-related losses. To this end, individuals who have sustained losses from injuries on other property owners' parcels and structures are encouraged to speak with personal injury attorneys who include premises liability claims in their practices. Exploring one's rights with the help of a legal professional can help a victim understand the important options they may have for becoming whole after a devastating premises liability accident.
