Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney
Establishing Fault in a Premises Liability Case
When someone is injured on another person’s property, this area of law is known as “premises liability.” In these cases, accident victims can take legal action against property owners. The law assumes that property owners have a duty to others on their property; this duty can be to warn others of potential hazards on the property, to fix problems that arise, or to prevent visitors from entering a dangerous area.
In order to establish fault, the victim must be able to prove that:
- The defendant owned, occupied, or leased the property;
- The defendant knew about dangerous conditions on the property;
- The defendant failed to fix or remove the hazard in a timely manner;
- The dangerous conditions caused the plaintiff to suffer harm; and
- The injuries could have been prevented by the defendant.
When a property owner fails to uphold their basic duties and someone is injured as a result, the law holds them accountable. If you were injured because a property owner failed to live up to his or her duties, you may be entitled to compensation. Georgia courts often order negligent property owners to compensate personal injury victims for medical care, missed work, pain and suffering, and other related expenses.
