Premises Liability Accidents: What You Should Know

When someone is injured because a building owner doesn’t take proper steps to ensure safety, they must be held responsible. If you’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. The Stefanie Drake Burford Law Group handles each case aggressively, yet compassionately. We have helped clients throughout Georgia.

Have You Been Injured? We Can Help

A property owner is required to have safe conditions. If they knowingly did not take care of a problem, they are liable. From shoveling the sidewalks to making sure a hallway is adequately lit, it is their responsibility to fix any issues. There are many different types of premises liability cases. They include:

  • Slip-and-fall cases
  • Inadequate maintenance of a building
  • Snow and ice accidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Water leaks or flooding
  • Toxic fumes

It is important to note that there are some cases where you cannot sue a building owner. For example, say you went to the grocery store and there was a spill. There is a sign next to it warning you of the spill, and you slip over it anyway. If an owner cannot immediately fix a problem, no matter how big or small, they must provide a sign warning those passing by. It is when they don’t that we have a case. If you’re unsure, call us, and we can discuss your options.
