Premises Liability in Texas
In the state of Texas, “premises liability” refers to a set of rules that holds property owners accountable for the safety of their guests. Within these rules are three categories that can determine a visitor’s business on the property and the level of care expected from the owner. These classifications are important, as they can affect the outcome of a liability claim. Visitors can be classified by any one of these three sections:
- This describes a person who enters the property with the owner’s knowledge and for the mutual benefit of both parties. The owner has a higher duty of care with an invitee and the responsibility to ensure the safety of the invitee during their visit. These types of properties could include restaurants, shops, and public parks.
- This involves a property owner’s consent for their own benefit. The owner has a duty of care to alert the licensee of any known dangers. Examples of a licensee could include a salesman or social guest.
- A trespasser has no permission or invitation to be on the property. A landowner has no duty to maintain their property in a safe condition for people to enter without permission. They do, however, have an obligation to not cause harm to the trespasser by gross negligence.
Blass Law is equipped with the knowledge and resources to differentiate between these sections and apply this information to your claim. If you believe that a property owner violated their duty of care, you may be eligible for compensation.

Texas law enforces the following when it comes to premises liability and personal injury:
- The property owner was aware of, or should have been aware of, the potential for harm; and
- The property owner either failed to address the danger or failed to warn others about it.
Property owners have an obligation to remedy or warn their guests of any unsafe conditions that may be present. Failure to do so can result in their liability for any damages that may occur.
At Blass Law, our legal team provides representation to pursue maximum compensation to cover your losses. We can collect evidence to support your claim and can help negotiate for the best settlement to cover your losses. If necessary, we will file a lawsuit and take your case to trial.
