In our daily lives, we go to countless places owned by other people. If you were to sit down and count the number of premises you enter weekly that you don’t own, you would probably run out of fingers. The reality is that you spend most of your time on other people’s property.
This can become an issue if you were to be injured on someone else’s property. Although accidents happen every day, some premises accidents could be avoided if owners engaged in proper maintenance. If you or a loved one suspect that a premises liability caused an injury in, it may be time to contact an Arlington premises liability attorney. At the Law Office of Dorothy Hyde, we can bring 30 years of experience to fight by your side.
A premises liability requires owners to take responsibility for damages related to injures that occurred on their property. While there are a variety of instances that qualify for premises liability, some common ones include the following:
These are just a few of the most common injuries accrued that can warrant a premises liability, but there are many more. If you believe that you fell victim to injuries as a result of negligent property owners, you may want to seek an Arlington premises liability attorney. After doing so, you would want to identify what type of property you were injured on. There are three main types of properties that qualify for premises liability.
The first is public spaces. In terms of premises liability claims, public spaces include stores, parks, beaches, roads, etc. Public premises are held to maintenance standards established by coding laws.
The second type of premises that qualify for liability are private spaces. Private spaces encompass all private residences that you are invited to. The owner of said residence assumes your safety as far as premises hazards are concerned. If a private residence is neglected to the point of causing you harm, the property owner may be liable.
The last type of space that qualifies for premises liability are workplaces. You may be thinking that you are insured for any damages that occur in the workspace, but some extreme cases warrant premises liability claims if they put employees in harmful scenarios that could have been avoided with proper maintenance. If you believe that you were put into a harmful scenario do to an employer’s neglect, you may want to reach out to an Arlington premises liability attorney.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
