Premises Liability Cases in AtlantaHave you been injured while on the property of another person or a business? Premises liability cases can arise from many different forms of negligence, not just slip and falls. When you visit a business, you have the expectation that the area will be free from danger. Sometimes, property owners do not properly maintain their property which creates dangerous conditions. The owners may neglect to adequately warn you of such dangerous conditions.
Types of Damages in a Premises Liability Case
- If you have been hurt due to a slip and fall, or other hazard within or near a building, do not fall into the Insurer’s trap of blaming you, the victim, for your injuries. Premises liability cases can take many forms, and you need a qualified attorney to perform a thorough investigation and pursue your claim. Although you may be familiar with cases of slip and falls, it is important to know that there are many ways a building owner or occupier can create hazardous situations that a jury may find negligent.
- The following is a list of some of the ways that a property owner, or someone occupying property may create dangerous situations that lead to premises liability cases:
- Wet floors without warnings
- Parking lots that are not well lit
- Stair cases that are not properly maintained
- Stair cases with uneven steps or without handrails
- Elevators and escalators that do not function properly
- Construction areas that are not properly secured
- Objects that are not stored correctly
- Ice or snow that has not been removed
- Deck collapses
- Misuse of construction equipment
- Falls from heights in construction locations due to lack of warnings
- Scalding hot water
- You may be entitled to damages for the pain and suffering that you have suffered as a result of your premises liability accident. Our Atlanta premises liability attorney Justin Wolfe can advise you as to your rights to recover general damages for pain and suffering, or special damages for your medical bills or lost time from work.
Premises Liability Lawyer Fees in Atlanta
- Don’t worry, hiring a personal injury lawyer will not cost you an arm and a leg. You do not pay any retainer fee and you do not receive monthly bills from the attorney. Almost all personal injury lawyers, including Justin Wolfe, work on a contingency fee basis.
- What is a contingency fee? A contingency fee agreement is when you and your attorney agree that the attorney’s fee is dependent upon the outcome of your case. This means that the attorney does not get paid unless he recovers for you.
