Premises liability cases can arise in a variety of different occurrences, including but not limited to the following:
- Slip and fall
- Dog bites
- Inadequate or negligent security (i.e., shootings or other serious injuries resulting from criminal acts at hotels, apartment complexes, shopping centers, parking decks/lots, bars/lounges, etc.)
- Sexual assault
- Inadequate maintenance and/or repairs
- Inadequate management of property
- Defective or hazardous conditions on a property
- Failure to warn
If you have been injured by a hazardous condition on someone else’s land or property, you may be entitled to compensation for your sustained damages. A landowner and/or possessor of property has a duty to maintain its premises reasonably safe for its lawful guests. Georgia law is clear that a landowner or possessor is required to remedy known dangerous conditions on their property or warn by the exercise of ordinary care as to hidden dangers. Furthermore, if a danger to a lawful guest is known or “foreseen” by the landowner, the landowner must exercise ordinary care and diligence to protect that guest from the peril.
