Premise Liability in Texas
According to recent reports, over 10,000 go-kart accidents involving children under the age of 15 occur annually throughout the country. When parents bring their children to these types of facilities, they expect the equipment to be intact and safe for their children to use. They also expect any faulty or hazardous equipment to be removed from the area once discovered. When facilities fail to provide safe equipment for children to play with, parents may be able to sue them if their child sustains injuries or loses their life.
At The Benton Law Firm, our child injury and premise liability lawyers have spent nearly two decades helping parents file wrongful death lawsuits against negligent business owners and other liable parties. We understand how traumatic it is for parents to lose their children, which is why we work so hard to help them gain justice. We know that money doesn’t suffice nor replace the life of their loved one, but parents shouldn’t have to pay for damages caused by other parties. If your child was harmed at a public facility, contact our office today for a free consultation at (214) 219-4878.
