Under Georgia law, the owner and occupier of a parcel of land have a legal and statutory obligation to maintain their property in a safe condition for people legally on the premises. The duty of the landowner can result in liability for negligent construction, design, maintenance, repair, inspection or even security from criminal attack by third parties on the premises.
If a Georgia property owner has knowledge of a danger or defect on his or her premises, he or she may be held liable for any resulting injuries under the doctrine of premises liability. At the Atlanta law office of Hill and Bleiberg, LLC, our lawyers represent victims of injuries on dangerous property.
A premises liability claim can arise from a variety of circumstances, including:
- Apartment building negligence
- Retail and commercial liability, such as a slip-and-fall in a store
- Attacks and sexual assault as a result of insufficient security
- A property owner's failure to conduct proper maintenance or upkeep
- Dangerous elevators or escalators
- False imprisonment
- Slip-and-fall accidents on sidewalks or floors
- Drowning and aquatic injuries in poorly maintained or supervised pools
Our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances that led to your injury, unearthing all relevant evidence. This may involve conducting detailed witness interviews, taking statements from employees, and finding construction and maintenance records, police incident property reports, surveillance video and other documentary evidence. Professional and experienced investigation is the key to success in these cases.
