Premises Liability


In accordance with state law, businesses and homeowners owe customers and guests a duty of care for their well-being. This duty is known as premises liability. Certain circumstances may exclude the duty from being enforced. These include:

  • Recklessness on the part of the injured party
  • The injured party placing him/herself in a dangerous situation
  • The injured party’s illegal presence on the property, i.e. trespassing

For cases where the property owner has in some way contributed to the plaintiff’s injuries, the latter may qualify to receive monetary damages. These injuries include but are not limited to:

  • Severe bruises/cuts
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Death (in severe cases)

If a person has suffered any of these or other injuries due to a mishap or hazard on someone else’s property, a personal injury attorney should be contacted immediately. An attorney from the J. Gonzalez Injury Attorneys of McAllen will be available to assist you with all aspects of your case, from filing your lawsuit to the resolution or trial verdict.
