Injury in Public Buildings | Property Injury Lawyer for Metro Houston
When incidents of injury in public buildings occur, the respective property owners could be held liable. Accidents that occur stemming from hazardous conditions in a public building or property may happen as a result of negligent, insufficient or absence of maintenance. The owner of the public property has a legal responsibility to maintain a safe property for occupants and visitors and is required to maintain, manage and oversee the property with reasonable care to prevent risk, harm or injury to occupants and visitors.
