Austin, Texas personal injury lawyers represented the Plaintiff who sued on a premises liability negligence theory.

This case was filed in the 455th Judicial District Court, Travis County, TX, D-1-GN-23-000068, and was removed to federal court by Walmart.

A premises liability action is a form of “negligence” based on a
premises defect theory. The elements to establish a premises
liability claim are different than those of a traditional negligence
claim. The claim must arise out of a condition of the premises.

and damages. H. E. Butt Grocery Co. v. Warner, 845 S.W. 2d
