Premises Liability Law

Under Georgia law property owners are required to exercise reasonable care to ensure their properties are safe for people who are on the property for a lawful purpose, such as customers or invited guests. If they fail to do so and someone is injured, the victim may pursue compensation.

For your claim to be successful, we must show that the property owner was negligent in causing a dangerous condition, failed to repair the unsafe condition, or failed in warning visitors of the condition. When this negligence leads to injury, we help clients pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

We represent clients injured as a result of:

  • Uneven pavement
  • Broken stairs or handrails
  • Slippery floors
  • Unmarked hazards
  • Inadequate security
  • Unsafe escalators or elevators
  • Other dangerous conditions caused by poor maintenance

Duty of Care and Premises Liability Law

Duty if care describes who a property owner is responsible for when it comes to premises liability law. Under this doctrine all visitors to a property can be divided into three categories:

  • Invitees
  • Licensees
  • Trespassers

Invitees are people who are invited onto the premises by the landowner. This can be a friend or a customer at a retail store. A licensee is someone who is allowed on a premises but for their own purposes, such as a salesman. Generally speaking a landowner has a responsibility to these two parties to warn them of potential dangers and to keep their premises reasonably safe for them. The third party, trespassers, is the only party in which the property owner has no responsible to unless the trespasser was a child. Premises liability laws can be complex. If you have questions, contact our firm today for a free consultation.
