In Texas, homeowners, property owners, and business owners have a legal responsibility and duty to keep their premises safe and free from unreasonably dangerous conditions that the owner knew or should have known about. Basically, owners must not be negligent and they have a legal obligation to keep the premises under their control up to a minimum standard so that visitors and shoppers do not injure themselves. They have a duty to warn visitors of hazardous conditions on their premises. The owner of a dog in Texas is legally responsible for the victim's injuries if the dog was known to be vicious and dangerous in the past or had bitten someone in the past.
