In Texas premise liability concerns injuries received as a result of the defective condition of the premises. These cases usually involve an individual, customer, or invitee who is injured as a result of a foreseeable defect. These types of cases are more difficult to prove due to recent Texas Supreme Court cases, which have shifted the burden of showing foreseeability onto the shoulders of the injured. The cases may involve slip and falls or injuries resulting from faulty construction. These cases may involve more than just the liability of the owner of the premises; it may extend to contractors, builders, architectural design defect which caused the accident. The owner of the premises may have different standards of care as well especially if the facilities are owned by a governmental entity. Waivers of liability can also become issues regarding users of the premises.
