Determined Georgia Litigators Fight for You
How can an Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney Help Me?
Property owners have a legal responsibility to protect those on their property. This responsibility requires them to keep their property clear of dangerous hazards. When reasonable care is not taken by property owners to remove or properly mark these hazards, they can be liable for any injuries resulting from them. Leipow & Associates, P.C. is committed to holding property owners accountable should they breach this duty to keep you safe.
Slip & Falls, Failures to Warn, and Other Unsafe Conditions.
The most common cases of Premises Liability involve Slip & Falls or Trip & Falls. These incidents typically occur when certain obstacles—such as wet floors or protruding trip-hazards—are not appropriately marked such that they give you a clear warning of their existence. If a property owner, say, mops their floor and thereby makes it unusually slipper, they ought to protect and or warn you—perhaps by closing off the area or placing a wet-floor sign. If you are injured as a result of slipping or tripping on an unmarked hazard, call the Law Office of Leipow & Associates, P.C. to determine if you are entitled to financial compensation.
Additional Types of Premises Liability
Premises Liability doesn’t just stop with wet floors. The list of steps property owners must take to ensure your safety goes on and on. A failure to adequately maintain your safety might be the result of:
- Negligent Security
- Employee Misbehavior
- Broken Stairs or Handrails
- Deficient Fire Safety Mechanisms
- Elevator or Escalator Malfunctions
- Failed Merchandise
- Water Contamination
- General Unsafe Premises Conditions
If you suspect that your injury was the result of any of the above, or if you believe a property owner violated their responsibility to keep you safe, call the Law Office of Leipow & Associates, P.C. for a free consultation.
