The Importance of Hiring an Attorney Quickly in a Premises Liability Case
Premises liability cases in Texas are very tough cases to prove. It’s very important that if you are ever injured on the property of somebody else that you immediately report it. If you’re in a store, make sure that you do a report with the manager so that any evidence of any culpability on the part of the property owner is created right then and there.
You want to make sure that you do everything you can to create evidence that would later allow you to establish liability on that property owner. Apart from doing a report, you want to immediately make sure that the property owner is on notice of a potential claim. You can do that by providing a letter by certified mail, asking them to preserve any and all evidence of the incident that occurred.
If it happens on the store such as a grocery store, you want to make sure that they retain any video evidence that they may have from surveillance cameras. Often times, that evidence can disappear quickly so you do not want to delay in preserving and asking them to preserve that evidence.
