How many places do you go each week? From trips to the grocery store and the bank to fun outings with the family and friends, you probably go all over town. When you go somewhere, the last thing you think about it getting injured.
If you are hurt on someone else’s property and you believe the property owner’s negligence caused your injury, you may need a premises liability attorney in Dallas. At The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde, you will have a team with experience to fight by your side and ensure you are properly compensated for your injuries.
Property owners and their agents (managers, employees, etc.) have a responsibility to ensure that anyone who is welcome on their property is safe from hazards.
Any place that welcomes the public has codes they must abide by. From the construction phase to everyday operations, owners have a duty to ensure that those who come onto their property will experience a safe environment. In stores, employees have a duty to ensure that all hazards are taken care of promptly, including cleaning up spills and putting hazardous materials away. Slip and fall accidents are one of the main types of injuries when it comes to premises liability cases, but they are also one of the most preventable.
When you go to a public park, whether it is operated by a government or private entity, they must maintain all equipment to ensure that you and your loved ones remain safe. If there are loose boards on a walkway and you trip and injure yourself, the property owner could be held liable.
If you are invited to a private residence, the property owner has an obligation to ensure you are safe from hazards that are foreseeable. For example, if there are loose bricks on a walkway or broken railings that cause harm to someone, the property owners could be held liable for injuries.
While most workplace injuries will be covered by workers’ compensation insurance, there are times when an employer or property owner’s negligence put people in unreasonably dangerous situations. In these cases, they may be held liable for damages and injuries.
Don’t wait to seek legal advice if you get hurt on someone else’s property. The clock starts ticking from the moment you are injured and you have a two-year statute of limitations in Texas. Even if the injury seems minor at first, know that some injuries don’t become worse until much later, so you need to get the ball rolling. When you need a Dallas premises liability attorney, turn to the team with experience. At the Law Office of Dorothy Hyde, you will have an attorney who will stop at nothing to get you the compensation you deserve, from money to handle your medical bills to lost income and more.

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.

It sure seems as though your Uber driver will be more careful when complimenting you on your appearance or asking personal (and creepy) questions (aka “Hey, what panties are you wearing right now? Can I see them?”). Yuck. Uber has finally listed all types of sexual misconduct and sexual assault reported by their riders and […]
