You should never have to worry about your safety when you are on someone else’s property as a guest or patron. Unfortunately, many private businesses, public establishments, and homes fail to take their duty of care seriously. Breaches in their duty of care are considered negligence.
If you suffered serious injuries on someone else’s property, you may have the right to financial compensation. A Carrollton premises liability lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help you bring the liable party to justice.

Premises Liability Injuries to Sue For
Injuries in a premises liability case can vary greatly. Even if you think your losses are minimal, you could pursue damages. Additionally, many injuries may not be obvious right away or have long-lasting effects that can impact your finances and well-being.
Let our personal injury lawyer evaluate your case and your losses, so you don’t miss out on the compensation you deserve. Some of the common injuries we see in a premises liability accident include:
- Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
- Whiplash, traumatic brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue injuries, like sprains or strains
- Organ failure and internal bleeding
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
In cases dealing with dog bites, a victim may suffer from many of the above injuries and any bites from the animal. You may even be mourning the loss of a loved one if they passed away after their accident. No matter what, our firm is ready to examine your case.
Liability for Premises Liability Accidents
In most premises liability claims, the property owner will be responsible for your injuries. This is because property owners owe guests and patrons a duty of care. They must ensure their premises are always safe for guests. Any hazardous conditions should be carefully marked if the property owner hopes to avoid culpability.
However, if your accident or injuries were caused by something other than property owner negligence, someone else could be responsible for causing your injuries. For example, if your injuries were caused by a defective product, the product manufacturer could be responsible for your injuries. Your attorney will need to thoroughly investigate the cause of your premises liability accident to determine who is at fault.
Dealing with a personal injury claim can be intimidating, especially when your case falls under premises liability. The other party or their insurer may try to blame you for your injuries and say that you bear the most responsibility for your losses. Our firm is prepared to push back against these claims.

Texas Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits, including premises liability lawsuits in Carrollton, requires victims to file their lawsuits before two years passes. This is in accordance with Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. However, you may not be sure how long you have left to file your case.
Will the statute of limitations expire two years from the date of your accident? Or will it expire two years from the date you were diagnosed with injuries relating to the accident? If these dates are different, the answer may not be clear.
Fortunately, when you get our premises liability attorney advocating for your rights, you do not need to worry that this critical deadline will lapse in your case.
