Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys
It is not unreasonable to assume that you should be safe when you visit
another person’s property. Unfortunately, accidents happen that
can cause serious injury. Whether accidents are caused by negligence or
some other unsafe condition on the property, the property owner can be
held liable for damages.
What Types of Cases Fall Under Premises Liability?
There are many different types of injury cases that can be classified as
premises liability cases.
These types of cases can involve:
- Slip and fall
- Dog bites
- Water leaks and flooding
- Toxic fumes or chemicals
- Swimming pool accidents
- Inadequate maintenance or other defective conditions
- Elevator/ escalator accidents
- Insufficient building security leading to assault or injury
It is a property owner’s responsibility to take reasonable care of
their property, whether a private home, large apartment complex, shopping
mall, or amusement park. Conditions like defective staircases, oily or
wet floors, loose cords or rugs, or uneven pavement can easily cause injury
if not addressed in a timely manner. If it can be proven that an owner
has failed to address dangerous conditions by either correcting them,
providing ways to get around the condition, or properly warning visitors
with measures such as signs or caution tape, they can be held responsible
Since laws differ from state to state regarding the extent of the owner’s
liability depending on the type of visitor, it is urgent to get in touch
with an experienced personal injury attorney that can provide you with
the guidance you need to put together a strong case and get you the compensation
