You may have grounds to sue if you were injured through a property owner's negligence or indifference. But you should not trust your case to someone who promises a quick and easy settlement. An experienced premises liability attorney knows that these cases are difficult to win even when the danger is tangible and the injuries are serious.
The law firm of Rush & Gransee, L.C., handles your personal injury claim the right way. We investigate promptly and put the liable parties on notice. We take the time to detail the extent of injuries and the impact on our client's life. We set our sights on maximum compensation, not a lowball settlement.

Property owners have a duty to your safety if you have a reason to be on their premises. This extends to slip-and-falls from safety hazards, assaults allowed by negligent security, dog bites by an animal with a vicious history, and other dangerous conditions.
To establish liability, we need to show that the owner created the danger or had ample opportunity to notice and correct the problem. The classic example of slipping on a grape in the supermarket — however serious the injuries — is actually one of the hardest cases to prove. Was the hazard there long enough to create a legal duty?
That said, our experienced lawyers can evaluate any scenario if you or a family member suffered lasting injury. We handle premises liability cases across South Texas such as:
- Potholes, raised concrete and other tripping hazards
- Slippery floors or spilled liquids
- Poorly lit stairwells or sidewalks
- Broken or missing handrails
- Falling merchandise
- Unexpected drop-offs
- Parking lot injuries
We will pursue legal action against businesses, apartment building landlords, homeowners or governmental entities to hold them accountable for your suffering, ongoing medical treatment and economic losses. For example, we obtained a good recovery for a woman who fell hard and broke both wrists in a Wal-Mart parking lot after she tripped over the protruding remnants of a concrete island that been removed in a slipshod fashion.Timely Investigation is Critical to Success
