If you were injured because of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries through a premises liability claim. Premises liability cases can be legally complex. The landowner’s liability often depends on the purpose of the injured person’s visit to the property and whether the landowner knew (or should have known) of the dangerous condition and provided warnings. Common premises liability claims are slip and falls and trip and falls. Less common premises liability claims are toxic exposure claims, such as exposure to benzene or asbestos.

DEADLINE TO BRING PREMISE LIABILITY CLAIM
It is important to act quickly. In Texas, the statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit is 2 years from the date of the injury. Although there are narrow and limited exceptions to this rule, if a case is not filed within 2 years of the injury, there is a strong chance the claim will be barred. In addition, the more time that passes, the greater the chance that evidence supporting your claim will be lost or destroyed. For example, security camera footage could help prove a premises liability claim by showing the landowner or property manager was aware of the dangerous condition. But security footage is routinely erased, which is why you should contact a lawyer who can protect your rights and take steps to preserve evidence.
