Cumming Premises Liability Attorney Helping People Injured on Other’s Property

Every time you leave your home, you are exposed to risks of injury that others may have an obligation to reduce or eliminate. When you are on someone else’s property, you do not expect to be subjected to hazards that may harm you. Instead, you expect the owner to keep the property in a safe condition. In fact, property owners have a duty to remove certain hazardous conditions to keep others safe. When property owners do not fulfill this duty, they can be held responsible for injuries to people on their property. These types of cases are known as premises liability cases, and they can be challenging to prove. That said, when you are injured on someone else’s property, it is a good idea to contact a Cumming premises liability attorney to help you with your claim.

Working with an experienced lawyer you can trust is essential, and Gilormo Injury Law has plenty of experience with premises liability cases. Amber and her team demonstrate compassion and respect for their clients as they handle these complex cases on their behalf. 

Common Premises Liability Hazards

There are numerous types of premises liability cases and hazards:

  • Slip and fall accidents typically occur when there is a wet surface that was not appropriately cared for, and that surface causes someone to fall. 
  • Other fall hazards occur when there are other surface or walkway issues that were not properly maintained to reduce the risk of someone injuring themselves. For example, damaged stairs, uneven walkways, and a lack of safety railings or handles increase the risk of injury due to a fall on negligently maintained property.
  • Negligent security cases involve several types of breaches of duty to keep visitors safe while on the property. Examples include, but are not limited to, improper screening before hiring security, lack of training for security personnel, poor lighting, or an insufficient amount of security officers present.
  • Falling objects can cause injuries to the individuals they fall on.

Even if the accident on someone else’s property does not fit exactly into one of these categories, you may still have a premises liability case. Therefore, you should contact a Cumming premises liability attorney to evaluate your situation and discuss your options.

How Your Lawyer Will Establish Fault

Proving a premises liability case can be difficult because you have to demonstrate that the owner knew or should have known about the hazardous condition that caused the injury. Also, you need to show that the owner failed to warn of the condition or make it safe. When attempting to prove your premises liability case, something to consider includes how long the unsafe condition existed since this could impact whether or not the owner had an opportunity to correct the issue. 

The owner will likely try to reduce the amount of their liability for your injuries by convincing a judge or jury that you had some responsibility in your accident. This makes it all the more important to have an experienced Cumming premises liability attorney on your side fighting for you and proving your case.
