Texas homeowners often buy land for their own use and enjoyment. Purchasing a home is often a big step in a person's life and can be a prudent investment. However, few people think about the responsibility that comes along with homeownership. Texas residents should understand that they can be held responsible if someone else is hurt on their property.
When homeowners are not careful, people can get hurt on their property. A slip-and-fall accident, inadequate lighting or other dangerous property condition can easily lead to serious injuries for others. If someone is hurt as a result of an accident at someone else's home, then that person may be entitled to compensation.
