Pearland Premises Liability Lawyer
The Golden Rule (do unto others as you would have them do unto you) is one of the most important overall principles in Texas personal injury law. Property owners have a legal duty to protect visitors. Owners are legally responsible for broken bones, broken heads, and other such injuries if they knew about the hazard which led to the injury and they could have addressed that hazard. The specifics vary in different premises liability cases, but the overall principles are much the same in all such matters.
Similarly, Henrietta Ezeoke, a strong-willed Pearland premises liability lawyer, uses the same basic principles to represent all clients in all situations. These principles include faithful commitments to basic ideas, like hard work every day, dedication to maximum compensation, and open communication throughout the process. In the past, these commitments have produced results which exceeded our clients’ expectations. We’re confident that we’ll obtain the same level of results in your injury case.
Matters We Handle
Vehicle collisions kill or seriously injure millions of Americans every year. Therefore, many people are familiar with these situations. Premises liability claims are a bit less common. Some examples include:
- Falls: Other than car crashes and drug overdoses, falls kill and seriously injure more people than any other form of accident. Negligence claims in this area usually include a failure to remove an injury hazard, like a wet spot on a floor or large sidewalk crack. Since there are many different kinds of public and private property, these claims are usually complex.
- Swimming Pool Drownings: These claims are complex as well, mostly because owner negligence or a defective product could cause such injuries. As mentioned, owners have a duty to keep swimmers safe. Warning signs don’t change this responsibility. Common defective products include malfunctioning pumps and drains. Usually, manufacturers are strictly liable for the injuries their defective products cause.
- Shootings and Assaults: In criminal court, individuals are legally responsible for such injuries. In civil court, landowners are often responsible for them. Providing adequate security is part of the duty of care. If inadequate security, like a burned-out light or a lack of adequate live security, substantially causes such an incident, compensation for victims might be available.
This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. A Pearland premises liability attorney can also obtain additional punitive damages, if there is clear and convincing evidence that the negligent party deliberately ignored a known risk.
There is no such thing as a minor accident if you’re the one who was injured, just like there is no such thing as minor surgery if you’re the one going under the knife. So, our approach is the same in all matters we handle.
We begin each case with a conversation, so we fully understand your needs and goals in a particular situation. Then, as we evaluate your case, we tailor our approach according to your needs.
Next, we collect evidence that supports your claim for damages and refutes insurance company defenses. Evidence collection may be the most critical part of an injury case. The victim/plaintiff has the burden of proof, and insurance companies usually fight these claims tooth and nail.
All the while, we always proactively communicate with our clients, so they are never in the dark and so they can make the best possible decisions for themselves and their families.
