Cumming Premises Liability Lawyers Protecting the Rights of the Injured
Holding Negligent Property Owners Responsible
When people visit the property of another to engage in social or commercial activities, they have the right to be free of being exposed to dangerous conditions that have the potential to cause injury. Premises liability law operates to hold those who own or lease property liable for injuries that are caused by their negligence. The injuries that people can sustain due to dangerous conditions on the premises of another have the potential to result in significant medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, or loss of future income, among other losses. Fortunately, Georgia law allows people to recover for these types of damages by filing a premises liability claim against the person or party responsible for the maintenance of the property. Anyone who has been injured by a dangerous condition on someone else’s property should consult with one of our Cumming premises liability attorneys as soon as possible after an accident.
Common hazardous conditions that may lead to premises liability claims
Premises liability claims can arise from many types of accidents. They can range from common simple slip and fall accidents to industrial accidents involving explosions or the release of hazardous materials. Some of the more common types of hazardous conditions that may result in premises liability claims include the following:
• Wet floors
• Inadequate lighting
• Exposed electrical wiring
• Cracked pavement
• Snow or ice
• Aggressive dogs or other animals
• Pool maintenance issues
• Amusement park incidents
Many incidents that result in premises liability claims occur in a retail or commercial setting. In these cases, it is important that you fill out an official incident report detailing how the accident occurred, and also that you record as much information about the accident as possible. If you are able, take photographs of the premises immediately after your accident occurs, and also try and obtain contact information from any witnesses to the incident. Finally, be sure to seek medical attention immediately for any injuries that you may have sustained.
