The Athens Premises Liability Lawyer
Passionate Representation for Victims of Dangerous Property Conditions
In Georgia, property owners are required by law to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. This includes invited guests, customers, clients, tenants, employees, and any other individual who is legally permitted to be on the property. The law applies to both private and public properties, such as homes, apartment buildings, offices, retail buildings, parks, and construction sites.
If you were injured on someone else’s property, and you believe the property owner is to blame, we encourage you to get in touch with our Athens premises liability lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your legal options. The Law Office of Joshua W. Branch, LLC can help you fight for the justice and recovery you are owed.
Proving Property Owner Negligence
In order to prove that a property owner acted negligently and is, therefore, liable for your injuries and other damages, you will need to show a few things:
- First, you will need to prove that the property owner owed you a duty of care. This can typically be proven by showing that you were on the property legally at the time of the incident.
- Second, you will need to show that a dangerous condition existed and that the property owner knew of or should have reasonably known of the condition.
- You will also need to prove that the property owner did not take reasonable steps to address, fix, or otherwise warn visitors (by putting out appropriate signage, etc.) of the dangerous condition.
- Lastly, you will need to show that the dangerous condition led to your injuries and other damages.
Examples of Dangerous Property Conditions
There are many different types of dangerous property conditions, all of which can have devastating consequences when they are not properly addressed by property owners.
Some common examples of dangerous property conditions include:
- Accumulated water, ice, or snow
- Lack of proper signage, including emergency exit signs
- Spilled merchandise
- Hazardous items/materials in walkways
- Unsafe stairs
- Lack of proper railing
- Torn or ripped carpeting and uneven floors
- Lack of sufficient lighting
- Unrestrained animals, such as dogs
- Unsafe swimming pools
- Lack of adequate safety fencing
