Under Texas law, the owner of residential or commercial property has a duty to maintain the property or to warn visitors of potentially unsafe conditions so as to avoid injury to visitors. Those who suffer injury on someone else’s property may be entitled to damages if the property owner fails to comply with this duty.
The exact duty owed by a property owner depends upon who was injured on the property. Whether the person is trespassing or was invited onto the property, each is owed a different duty.
If you are a property owner and someone is alleging they were injured due to an unsafe condition on your property, seeking an experienced attorney early in the process can put you in the best position to minimize your potential liability.
