Common Causes of Premises Liability Cases in Dallas
There are nearly innumerable ways that a person can be injured due to the negligence of a property owner. However, the team at the Law Office of Julie Johnson has extensive experience helping clients who have been injured in Dallas due to the following:
- Slip and fall incidents on a commercial property or private residences
- Dog bites or other animal attacks
- Swimming pool or hot tub injuries
- Inadequate or negligent security
- Inadequate property maintenance
In many situations, premises liability cases arise because the property owner or their agents failed to act or respond appropriately to situations on their property. A common, but unfortunate, type of premises liability case revolves around attractive nuisance laws. In these cases, property owners have something on their premises that children may be attracted to and want to play around. This can include a pool, a playground set, construction debris, or even a giant mound of dirt. It is up to property owners to properly secure these attractive nuisances to ensure that children cannot become injured.
For example, if a property owner has a swimming pool in their backyard with no fence around it, and this pool is accessible by children in the neighborhood, then that property owner could be held liable if a child gets into the pool and drowns.
