Premises liability may arise when an owner of the property, or the person or business responsible for the upkeep of the property, fails to maintain the property in a safe condition, and you are injured as a result.
The most common types of premises liability include negligent security, slip and fall, trip and fall, and dog bites. Other types of premises’ liability, although not as common, include toxic or chemical exposure, and falling debris or tree limbs.

Negligent Security: Our premises liability lawyer has extensive experience handling negligent security claims, including negligent security from failing to monitor parking lots, stairwells, elevators, and other places where known assaults have taken place. Inadequate security can also arise from failing to maintain locking mechanisms on doors and windows at apartments and hotels. If you have been assaulted or injured due to negligent security, please contact Austin Carr for a free consultation to discuss your claim.
Slip, Trip, and Fall: Slip and fall and trip and fall claims often arise because of property in disrepair (such as uncovered ditches or holes, broken stairs, or uneven flooring or pavement), or foreign substances on the floor (such as slippery liquids or sticky substances), or items left in a walkway or aisle. If you were injured because of a slip and fall or trip and fall, please contact Austin Carr for a free consultation to discuss your claim.
Dog Bites or Animal Attacks: Dog bites occur frequently. If you are bitten by a dog because of an owner’s failure to restrain or warn of a dog, you may have a claim. In addition, if you were injured because a dog knocked you down or put you in reasonable fear, you may also have a claim. Austin Carr offers free consultations to help you evaluate whether you have a claim. If you have been injured by someone’s dog or other animal, please contact our Board-Certified Civil Trial Law Specialist, Austin Carr, today.
