Do You Have a Premises Liability Case?

Property Owners Could Be Responsible for Careless and Unsafe Conditions
Homeowners, landlords, business owners, and other property owners have a legal duty to maintain safe premises. If their failure to do so caused your injuries, they may be legally responsible for your damages.

We Can Help You Prove that Negligent Conditions Caused Your Injuries
Our attorneys can help you prove a property owner’s negligence led to your injuries. Proof of negligence will vary depending on your type of accident. For example, a business owner could be liable for your slip and fall if they:
- Failed to replace a ripped or torn section of carpeting, and you tripped
- Failed to secure their building with adequate lighting, locks, or surveillance equipment, and you were attacked
D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ can investigate your accident and determine who may be liable. We will:

We Will Handle Your Insurance Claim from Start to Finish
Our only goal is to help you pursue every dollar you deserve. For many types of premises liability cases, the process begins with an insurance claim. Our attorneys will:
- File your insurance claim
- Prepare and submit relevant case documents
- Manage and adhere to insurance deadlines
- Review your settlements and reject lowball offers
- Negotiate to seek the highest settlement available
If we cannot resolve your case via insurance, we can help you with a lawsuit. Legal action is bound by the statute of limitations. In general, Texas law states that you must file personal injury or wrongful death cases within a specific amount of time. You generally would have two years from your injury or your loved one’s passing. A lawyer from our team can tell you about possible deadline extensions and reductions.
What Can You Do to Help Your Case?
We want to relieve your legal burden as much as possible. However, there are things you can do to assist with your case. The first is to seek medical treatment immediately if you have not done so already. Afterward, it is important to follow the advice of your physician. This will keep your condition from worsening. It will also prevent the insurance company from blaming you for your injuries.
Another way you can help is by keeping careful records of your out-of-pocket expenses. Save your medical bills, property repair receipts, wage records, and any other relevant documentation.
Finally, if an insurance representative reaches out to you, direct them to your attorney. Do not go into detail about your accident and/or injuries, speculate on the cause of your accident, or accept any initial offers. It is best to keep the conversation brief so that the insurance company cannot use anything you say to reduce or deny your settlement.
