When you go somewhere open to the public, you expect it will be safe for you to walk in, walk around, and complete your business. However, some property owners don’t take the necessary precautions to ensure that their premises are safe for people. If you’ve slipped and fallen, tripped over debris, or been hit by a falling object, the accident and your resulting injuries may be the responsibility of the property owner – and this means that they may owe you money for your injuries and other harm. Have you been hurt on someone else’s property? Are you curious about whether you can recover compensation? Contact an Atlanta, GA, African American premises liability lawyer from Council & Associates, LLC, today for a free case review!
Premises liability is a legal term that refers to the responsibility of a property owner to ensure the safety of guests and visitors to their property. A property owner could refer to a tenant (like a store owner leasing commercial space from a shopping center or mall), the owner of the property (like a building owner), or the property manager (like a store manager). If someone is hurt because of unsafe conditions on the property, then the owner could be held liable for that person’s injuries and other losses.
A premises liability case is a personal injury lawsuit, a legal process that permits injured parties to recover compensation from the negligent person or entity who caused the accident. Slipping and falling is the most common type of premises liability accident, although a premises liability accident can be one of many things, including:
As an injured victim, you have the right to file a suit for damages and seek compensation.
