What are my options if I was injured on another’s property?

In the event that you were injured because of a property owner’s negligence, you may be qualified to obtain financial compensation for the burdens you have sustained as a result. There are several other factors that play into a successful premises liability claim, which is why it is so important that you take the following steps after your accident if you are able:

  • Call 911 – The police will file a police report and dispatch an ambulance.
  • Take plenty of pictures and videos of the scene of the accident, including the hazardous conditions and the injuries you sustained as a result of those conditions.
  • Collect contact information including names, cell phone numbers, and emails from any witnesses of the accident. Witness testimony can be an important part of a personal injury claim.
  • Seek medical attention to confirm that your injuries are adequately treated.
  • Ask your doctor for medical documentation, including the origin of your injuries and the extent of them.
  • Retain the services of one of our skilled Houston personal injury attorneys that can help you gather further evidence, including security camera footage, to help your legal claim.
  • Be sure to file within the deadline or statute of limitations. In the state of Texas, personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the accident in order to be considered a proper legal claim.
