Premises Liability Defense
The Silvera Firm actively defends premises liability claims on behalf of employers, premises owners and property management companies. In Texas, the case law is relatively clear concerning a premises owner’s duties and obligations to invitees. The Texas Supreme Court has consistently held that a premises owner must have actual constructive knowledge of an alleged defective condition or unreasonably dangerous condition before it owes any duty to warn or correct that condition. A large majority of premises liability cases can be defended and disposed of by means of summary judgment, as opposed to trial.
