Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney
Holding Property Owners Accountable

Property owners are obligated to ensure your safety, and when accidents occur, serious injuries are often the result.

Referred to as “premises liability” cases, thousands of people across the state of Georgia are injured in slip, trip, and fall accidents every year. If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property, an Atlanta premises liability attorney can help you get the compensation you need.

The Property Owner’s Duty to You

Generally speaking, property owners have a legal duty to ensure that the property is safe for their guests and visitors. If you have permission to be on the property, either express or implied, chances are that the property owner owes you a duty to ensure your safety. There are some important considerations to keep in mind, which our Atlanta premises liability attorney outlines below.

  • You did not have permission to be in a specific area. For example, you entered an area of a store that was clearly marked “employees only.”
  • Retail property owners owe a higher duty of care to their visitors than private property owners.
  • Property owners do not owe a duty of care to trespassers.

Our Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney Explains How a Property Owner Could be Found Negligent

Determining whether the property owner has breached their duty is the crux of most premises liability cases. An Atlanta premises liability attorney will determine a breach of duty according to a negligence standard – did the property owner fail to take reasonable care to prevent foreseeable injuries? This can take the form of failing to maintain the property and address hazards or failing to warn guests and visitors of potential hazards. Here are some common examples of negligence in premises liability cases:

  • A retail owner fails to post a “wet floor” sign after mopping
  • An apartment owner fails to repair a loose handrail on the stairs leading up to the building
  • A nightclub owner fails to ensure that the fire suppression system is in proper working order

Determining whether the property owner breached their duty to you will depend primarily upon the facts in your case. An experienced Atlanta premises liability attorney will be able to evaluate your case and determine whether the owner was negligent.

The Elements of a Your Case Explained by an Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney

The fact that you or your child has been injured on someone else’s property doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a claim. In order to pursue compensation for your injuries, you have to be able to prove the following elements:

  • The property owner owed you a duty;
  • The property owner breached that duty; and
  • The breach caused your injuries.

If you cannot prove each of these elements, it is unlikely that you will be able to pursue a claim. Our injury lawyers encourage Georgia residents who have been injured on someone else’s property to consult with an Atlanta premises liability attorney. We can work together to determine if you have a case to pursue.

Proving that Your Accident Caused Your Injuries

This element is typically straightforward, especially if your injuries are obviously the result of your accident. However, in order to prevail, you must document your claim carefully, which means that you must be diligent to keep copies of the following:

  • All medical bills
  • Doctor’s reports, notes, and any other correspondence
  • Receipts for copays and other out-of-pocket expenses caused by your injury

An Atlanta premises liability attorney can help you compile the documents you need to prove your claim. If you reinjured or aggravated a pre-existing injury, they can also help you overcome any objection that your injury wasn’t actually caused by the accident.
