When Property Improvements Go Belly-Up: Negligent Hiring & Chapter 95

In Texas, independent contractors and their employees can hold property owners liable for premise liability and/or negligence if the property owner maintained some control over the manner in which work is performed on the property and failed to warn about dangers on the property that the owner should have reasonably known. This type of claim requires that the property owner was negligent in hiring the contractor and the contractor was negligent during work on improvements to the property.
