Premises Liability

In the state of Georgia, property owners are required to ensure their property is safe and free from hazards. When property owners or business owners fail to do so, innocent people can suffer overwhelming personal injuries and even death.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation for your losses through a premises liability lawsuit.

The Atlanta premises liability attorneys at Powell & Associates will work diligently to uncover the facts, protect your rights, and ensure the responsible party is held accountable.

Types Of Premises Liability Cases

The legal discipline of premises liability holds occupiers and property owners legally responsible for injuries and accidents that occur on the property.

Those injured as a result of hazardous conditions may be eligible to recover lost wages, medical bills, diminished earning capacity and rehabilitation costs, as well as pain and suffering.

Over our tenure, we have successfully won favorable settlements and rulings on an array of premises liability cases, including:

  • Slips and falls
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Defective railings and stairways
  • Exposure to mold, lead paint, hazardous chemicals and toxic materials
  • Falling object injuries
  • Negligent supervision of children
  • Poorly guarded swimming pools
  • Recreational water illness
  • Failing to warn visitors of hazardous environments
  • Inadequate maintenance or inadequate security
  • Structural defects

We bring decades of experience holding landlords, homeowners, retailers, business franchises, government entities, property managers and several other parties responsible for dangerous and hazardous conditions.

What Constitutes A Premises Liability Case?

Georgia property owners are required to exercise reasonable care to keep premises safe from dangerous conditions. Contractors, property managers, and even tenants may be held legally liable for hazardous conditions. In order to have a valid premises liability claim, the injured individual must be able to prove:

  1. The commercial or residential property contained hazardous conditions.
  2. The occupier or owner of the property was aware of the dangerous conditions, or the owner of the property should have known about the dangerous conditions through the exercise of ordinary care.
  3. The occupier or owner of the property failed to warn of the existence of the hazard or failed to remove it from the property.
  4. The result of the hazardous condition was an injury or death.

Many Georgia premises liability cases occur in shopping malls and stores. Customers and visitors to the property suffer injuries caused by uneven walkways, walkway obstructions, slippery floors, poorly maintained parking lots, and unmarked hazards. In these instances, the store owner or corporation failed to provide a reasonably safe environment for customers and may be legally responsible under the discipline of premises liability.
