You Have Found Your Expert Premises Liability Lawyer
When someone gets injured on the property of another, the property or premises owner may be subject to liability for failing to upkeep his property or warn others of dangerous conditions which exist on his property. This is particularly true in the setting where the property owner "invites" guests to his property for business gain as in the case of a retail store. When patrons of a business visit the business to shop, that business may be liable for unreasonably dangerous conditions posed by the property. If it can be proven that the property owner knew about the dangerous condition of his property and failed to act to fix it, then liability can often be imposed.
OUR ATLANTA ACCIDENT ATTORNEY HAS EXPERIENCE WITH MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF CASES
Slip and fall cases illustrate this point. If a piece of sidewalk is broken, but not noticeable to the average person, it could pose a serious risk of injury. Slip and fall liability lawsuits are one example, but our Atlanta premises liability attorneys represent victims of many different types of premises liability injuries resulting from:
- Amusement parks
- Hotels and motels
- Construction sites
- Recreational activities
Premises liability lawsuits can also stem from any kind of unsafe or dangerous conditions on the premises, or defect in the construction of, or inadequate maintenance of the premises where an injury or accident occurs.
These types of cases may include:
- Toxic chemical exposure injury
- Toxic mold injury, lead poisoning
- Defective lighting
- Failure to warn of hazardous conditions on the property
- Improperly maintained equipment
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Other dangerous conditions on the premises.
Most of us go out without worrying about safety conditions at the businesses we patronize, our public facilities or the homes we visit. But property owners and occupiers can make mistakes, and thousands of Americans discover each year that public places aren’t always as safe as we like to think. In Georgia, property owners and occupants are legally responsible for the conditions on their premises -- their property. When there’s a hazard underfoot, inadequate security, an unmade repair or other situation that leads to serious injuries for visitors, those visitors may file a premises liability lawsuit in Georgia.
