What Is a Premises Liability Case?
When you enter a property, the owner may have a duty to protect or warn you about certain dangers. However, not all visitors get the same level of care:
- Invitees: business owners must warn and protect customers, business patrons, service providers, and others who enter a business for a shared financial purpose from all reasonably identifiable hazards.
- Licensees: property owners must warn social guests, salespeople, and other people who visit a property for their own benefit about known hazards.
- Trespassers: when an adult enters a property without permission, the property owner is financially responsible if they intentionally injure them or recklessly cause them harm. Different rules may apply to children who trespass in Texas.
However, even if you can prove that a property owner violated their duty of care, you still may face defenses and other legal challenges. For example, the insurance company might argue that you were aware of the hazard or that it was so obvious that you should have recognized its danger. When these efforts are successful, victims and their families lose the opportunity to collect the financial compensation they need to put their lives back together.
In these cases, it’s best to consult with an experienced San Antonio premises liability lawyer. Our San Antonio personal injury lawyers handle serious premises liability injury cases involving:
- Slips and falls caused by flooding, leaks, or ice
- Insufficient building security
- Improper building maintenance and fixture installations
- Structural collapse
- Defective elevators and escalators
- Dog bites
- Electrical hazards and electrocution
- Unsecured or unsafe swimming pools or hot tubs
- Exposure to toxic chemicals and other hazards
Our premises liability practice focuses on the cases where our skills and experience are needed most: those involving catastrophic injuries, major surgeries, or wrongful death claims.
A Slip and Fall Can Cause More Than Bumps and Bruises
While most slip-and-fall incidents cause relatively minor harm, some victims suffer life-threatening injuries. At Crosley Law, we fight for seriously injured people and work hard to quickly resolve their claims and get them a fair resolution.
Our premises liability attorneys have handled complex claims involving injuries like:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and post-concussive syndrome
- Broken bones
- Crushing injuries
- Herniated discs and other back injuries
- Damage to knees, shoulders, and other joints
- Neuropathy or nerve damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Burns and chemical exposure
- Lung and heart damage
For example, Crosley Law represented a 22-year-old student who suffered fatal injuries after plummeting from a second-story balcony. Our client was simply leaning on the balcony’s railing when it gave way. We aggressively negotiated with the apartment owners and their maintenance company—and won our client’s family a $1.6 million settlement. After attorney’s fee and costs, they received a net recovery of roughly $932,000.00.

Crosley Law Is a Nationally Recognized Leader in Trampoline Park Claims
Large indoor trampoline parks continue to grow in popularity. While these parks may seem like an ideal place for active family fun, the industry lacks regulatory oversight. The absence of regulation means hazards and unsafe practices are common at these parks. Far too many victims suffer serious, life-altering injuries or even die while playing at indoor trampoline parks nationwide.
We’ve seen the dangers of trampoline parks firsthand. Our law firm made headlines in 2016 when we won the largest verdict ever against a U.S. trampoline park. In 2018, our founding attorney Tom Crosley became the first co-chair of the American Association for Justice’s (AAJ’s) Trampoline Litigation Group. Our peers recognize us as leaders in the field of trampoline park liability. If you or a loved one suffered severe injuries at a trampoline park or another facility, contact us to schedule your free consultation.

Complex Premises Liability Claims Require Aggressive Legal Strategies
After a life-changing injury, you may have many questions about who was to blame and what your legal options are. Unfortunately, you’ll probably find that the property owner and their insurance company refuse to answer your questions and treat you like an enemy.
Insurance companies often try to discourage victims from seeking compensation by saying they waived their right to compensation or claiming the hazard was “open and obvious.”
To successfully resolve your premises liability case and recover the financial compensation you deserve, you’ll need to work with an attorney who can conduct a detailed investigation of your accident, prove that the property owner acted negligently, and accurately calculate your damages. Our law firm uses an extensive network of resources and experts to identify the causes of our clients’ injuries, value their claims, and hold negligent property owners accountable.
For example, in our record-breaking trampoline liability claim, Crosley Law attorneys worked with a team of experts who helped us document the facility’s reckless conduct, our young client’s treatment plan and anticipated damages, and the long-term impact of brain trauma.
Using a carefully prepared trial strategy, our attorneys convinced the jury that the facility was 100% responsible for our client’s injuries. They also successfully argued for punitive damages because of the business’s reckless disregard for its customers’ safety.
