Premises liability law is in place to hold property owners and homeowners responsible for injuries suffered on their property as a result of dangerous or hazardous conditions. The most common type of premises liability claims involve slip and fall accidents, but there are a host of other incidents that may lead to a premises liability lawsuit. One of the most difficult aspects of any premises liability case is proving the property owner could have prevented the accident if they’d taken better safety measures. If you’ve been injured on another person or business owner’s property because of preventable hazardous conditions, please contact Shamieh Law.

TYPES OF PREMISES LIABILITY CLAIMS
The likelihood of an accident occurring in a place of business, store, school, sidewalk, parking lot, or home of an acquaintance is pretty high, given the amount of time we spend in these establishments. There are a wide range of premises liability claims that may require legal representation, including:
- Slipping on wet or icy sidewalks, parking lots, walkways, or other surfaces

- Construction site accidents
- Willful neglect on the part of the property owner
- Failure to warn of potentially unsafe conditions

PROVING LIABILITY IN A PREMISES LIABILITY CASE
One of the most complicated aspects of any premises liability claim is proving liability. If you were injured on another person’s property, you must be able to prove that the property owner or manager knew about the unsafe conditions, yet failed to do anything about it. As you can imagine, this isn’t always easy and requires the expertise of an experienced DFW premises liability attorney. In order to bring a claim against a negligent property owner, you must be able to prove the following:
- The at-fault party was in command of the property
- The property owner or tenant was negligent in the maintenance of the property
- The property owner’s negligence directly lead to your injury
It is not always easy to prove a premises liability case, which is why we encourage you to contact Shamieh Law today. Our experienced legal team is dedicated to helping each and every client get the results they are looking for, which starts by proving liability in this particular case.
