Premises Liability Laws in Texas
When seeking to establish a liability claim for a personal injury which occurred on the premises you were visiting, it is critical to demonstrate your own reason for being there. This is because Texas liability laws define the legal duties of managers differently, based on the reason why you were on the property in the first place.
These primary classifications include being a:
- Licensee – If you have the owner’s consent to be on the property, but are not there for a commercial purpose, you are known as a “licensee.”
- Invitee – If you have the owner’s consent to be on the property and are specifically there for commercial purposes which benefit both you and the owner, you are known as a “invitee.”
- Trespasser – If you do not have the owner’s consent to be on the property, you are illegally trespassing, which means that the owner does not have to secure your safety.
Premise Definitions in Texas
Another critical aspect for establishing a premises liability claim is figuring out what kind of premises you were on when you were injured. The sidewalks, lawns, and external buildings or structures all count as being part of a person’s premises. Thus, the manager or owner should be responsible for taking care of these as well. Both private residential properties (like swimming pools or houseboats) and private commercial properties (like retail stores or stadiums) are all susceptible to premises liabilities. Public properties, such as public roads or parks, count under Texas law as well.

Many owners attempt to claim that they did not specifically give you permission, in an attempt to pass the blame on to you by claiming you were a trespasser. However, in most situations, a business, company, or similar premise is open to public licensees or invitees, who may not have been individually invited by the owner but are legally allowed to be there as potential customers or guests. In these tricky scenarios, it is essential to have our knowledgeable McAllen premises liability attorney by your side to defend your purpose for being on the premises and demonstrate that the owner is the one at fault for their irresponsible lack of care.
