Dallas Premises Liability And Nonsubscriber Litigation

We live in a highly litigious society. The number of civil lawsuits brought by Americans each year is on the rise, including frivolous, unsubstantiated and unreasonable claims. Unfortunately, this means business owners and employers are seeing an increase in lawsuits directed at their company as well.

Some of the most common legal actions against businesses are premises liability and nonsubscriber claims. When a customer, client, invited visitor or employee sustains injuries on a company's property, he or she may have a right to bring a legal claim for compensation. However, many of these claims are without basis in fact or law, or plaintiffs are demanding monetary settlements that are not commensurate with the actual injuries.

Defending Against Premises And Nonsubscriber Claims

If you have been named as a defendant in a personal injury or nonsubscriber claim, Beasley, Hightower & Harris, P.C., can help. Our law firm focuses on complex litigation claims and has been doing so since 1923. When you work with our law firm, we will waste no time disproving the plaintiff's claims of negligence and liability, and demands for unreasonable compensation.

In a premises liability case, the plaintiff must prove that the company knew about a property hazard (or should have known) and did nothing to remedy that danger. However, the law realizes that there are many instances in which a business could not have known, or was not legally responsible for knowing of a hazard. Our lawyers understand these complex laws, and use creative legal arguments to defend your case.

Employers who have declined workers' compensation insurance are at risk for nonsubscriber lawsuits brought by injured employees. While there are challenges in these cases, our lawyers have an in-depth understanding of nonsubscriber laws and will use all available legal means to protect your position.

Our lawyers understand that no one likes to engage in litigation. We will offer practical advice when settling is the best option versus when a trial is in your best interest.

We are prepared to defend you against any type of premises liability claim, including those surrounding:

  • Slip and falls
  • Trip and falls
  • Falling merchandise
  • Negligent security
  • Building collapses
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Dangerous stairwells
  • Engineering and architectural failures
