Atlanta Slip and Fall Accidents
Premises liability is the legal doctrine that declares the owner of a property responsible for any injuries that occur due to their negligence. Every state in the U.S. holds that property owners must make a reasonable effort to keep their premises safe, as defined by “duty of owner or occupier of land to invitee” in Georgia Code Section 51-3-1.
Trip & falls can be dangerous, and while often times you will recover just fine, they can certainly lead to serious injuries requiring medical attention.
How do I know if there is a case for unsafe premise?
In order to hold a property owner liable in the eyes of the law, there must be a link between the property owner’s negligence and the unsafe conditions on the property.
