We have had the pleasure of using Carabin and Shaw in a recent car accident. We only asked for one thing in our representation: communication. Margret went far and beyond our expectations! She made sure we were inThe loop the whole time. Making sure all our appointments were scheduled and answered any question we had. We even had the opportunity to hear our representative stick up for us first hand! These are the type of attorneys you want on your side! Too bad the rating is only five stars… Definitely a 10!

I wanted to take the time and wright a review regarding how exceptional the law office of Carabin & Shaw has been to me. Everyone at the office was super kind, professional and friendly. I was never in the unknown about my car accident case. I was constantly provided with updates. I want thank Mr. Shaw and the legal assistant Margaret Hernandez. The law office was able to settle my case very fast the accident occurred Oct. 2022 and the accident was settled by March 22, 2023. I am giving this office a 5 star rating. The law office went above and beyond, my truck was a total loss and the office was able to get all my medical bills paid, all the attorney fees were paid and the majority of the money went to ME! I was also compensated for my total loss on my vehicle from the people at fault. Thank you Bianca for giving me the Great new today!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! I would use Carabin & Shaw again if ever needed. Love you guys!!!!

I was in an auto accident in October of 2021. I reached out to Carabin & Shaw through a recommendation of a friend of mine. They listened to what I had to say and very professionally told me they would take my case on.The entire process was very easy and I am very happy that I chose this law firm. Very communicative and always alerted me of what the next steps would be. They set up all my appointments and always checked in with me on a regular basis.When I would call I would quickly get a return call if they were busy. No question I had was ever seen as a bother to them.I cannot recommend using Carabin & Shaw enough. I assure you that they will be the lawyers I recommend to everyone, just as they were to me. If you have been in an auto accident, reach out to this amazing law firm. Do not try and deal with the situation on you own. Thank you so much for all of your help Carabin & Shaw!

I have the best experience ever with Carabin & shaw and Mr Bates, when I had my accident back to August 2018 at that moment I hired different attorneys firm that had my case cold until March 2020 when I fired them and look to Carabin & Saw direccion and in the very first moment the started with my case with professionalism, transparency and to be honest with you, nothing I says will be enough to express how happy I am with Carabin and Shaw, I will recommend you to consider your options when you need an attorney.I hope newer needs to go through this kind of process any more because is very difficult for all the parties involved even more for who's been affected financially and also injured by the accident but if I need someone who is going to fight for my rights that law firm is going to be Carabin & Shaw

Dallas Premise Liability Lawyers

Premise Liability vs. Standard Negligence

What is the Difference Between a Premises Liability Claim and a Standard Negligence Claim?

Many people think that anytime they are injured while on the property of another person that the property owner is responsible for their injuries. A property owner can be liable under the doctrine of premises liability or negligence, but determining which theory applies to your case is crucial. The standard of care which the property owner owes to the plaintiff is determined by whether the claim is based upon premise liability or standard negligence. Every case is different and should be evaluated by an experienced attorney who may assist you with your personal injury claim.

What is Premise Liability?

This legal doctrine is the theory that landowners and people who are in the possession of land may be held liable for injuries that you suffer while on their property. The duty of care the landowner owes you is directly based on your status as a visitor. For example, a landowner owes a greater duty of care to an invitee than he would to a trespasser. If you’re a shopper at a retail store the store owner owes a greater duty to you as an invitee while you shop around than if you go beyond specified boundaries and become a trespasser. So what kinds of accidents qualify as premise liability?

If you are injured on someone’s property and a dangerous condition caused your harm on the property, then this scenario would be classified as a premises liability claim. This is probably the simplest case of premises liability. After this situation is established, you will need to consult with our premise liability lawyers about what your personal status was at the time of the accident to then specifically assess potential damages that the property owner may be obligated to pay.

Lets Look at this Scenario

For example, say the defendant was mopping the floors and failed to clean up the excess water when they finished which then causes you to slip and hurt yourself. Because the defendant had finished mopping the floors and was completely done with that activity, the action is considered not ongoing and your claim would be based on premise liability.

Personal injury law covers a wide range of scenarios, where the victim can suffer an injury in a variety of situations. Some of the more common types of cases include: Car accidents, Motorcycle accidents, Truck accidents, construction accidents, animal attacks, slips and falls, And more

For those unfamiliar with Texas personal injury laws, it’s not always easy to know whether or not you have a case or how much your case could be worth. What’s worse, insurance companies often take advantage of victims and their lack of knowledge to limit the amount of compensation paid out.

To ensure you get the maximum amount you are entitled to, it is crucial you speak to our Dallas premise liability attorneys who have the experience you are looking for, in handling personal injury cases.

The Shift from Premise Liability to Standard Negligence

However, this is where a shift is created in the law. Say the defendant was in the process of mopping the floors when you slipped and hurt yourself. Because the defendant was still actually participating in the activity when you were injured, the action is considered to be ongoing. And if the plaintiff is injured while on the defendant’s property by the defendant’s negligent activity that was ongoing at the time of the injury then the personal injury claim is based on negligence.

This shift in legal theories can be very complex and challenging to identify for someone who is unfamiliar in dealing with these types of personal injury claims. The attorneys at our law office are very knowledgeable and will help better explain these theories of liability to you when we discuss your case in further detail.

Additionally, when a plaintiff is not on the defendant’s grounds but is injured due to a dangerous condition that is on the defendant’s premises this claim would be considered standard negligence. For example, the property owner burns a bunch of tires on his property. The smoke blows over the road you are traveling on and blinds your view of the road, which causes you to crash the car. Or, say the landowner has a very large tree on their property. But after years of decay has become very unstable and has developed a severe lean. If a strong storm develops and knocks the tree over causing it to hit your car resulting in you suffering physical injury, you would have a claim against the landowner based on negligence.

Because the owner did not use ordinary care to remove the danger, and you were injured you may be entitled to compensation from the landowner. But since you were not on the land owner’s property, you would not be entitled to compensation based on premise liability.

Premise Liability Requires that You Must Be on the Defendant’s Property

So, what is your claim based on if you are injured by the defendant’s negligent activity, but you are not on their property? This case would just be based on standard negligence. Furthermore, it is likely not even relevant to the court whether the activity was ongoing or not. Either way, you would have a negligence claim against the defendant for their actions.

Anytime you are injured, whether it is due to premises liability or standard negligence of another person, you should always seek the guidance of our qualified attorney. The attorneys at our law office have been practicing personal injury law for over 25 years and are very experienced in working both premises liability and standard negligence claims. If you have been injured and would like to discuss your potential claim, contact our law office.
