Common Premises Liability Cases
A premises liability claim can arise in many different situations. Every type of environment is unsafe under certain circumstances. A sidewalk may crack and crumble, a restaurant may have broken glass on the floor, and an apartment building may have loose stair treads. If the property owner doesn’t identify the hazard and correct it, it can cause serious injuries and accidents. Accidents often occur at or on:
- Parking Lots
- Swimming Pools
- Defective and Broken Stairs
At Allen & Scofield Injury Lawyers, LLC, we also commonly handle cases based on:
- Slip, Trip, & Fall
- Insufficient Security
- Defective and Broken Stairs
- Dog Bites
- Trampoline Park Accidents
Whatever the situation is that led to your injuries, or the loss of a loved one, contact a premises liability attorney in Atlanta to discuss your rights and options.
Bringing a Premises Liability Case
If you were an invitee at the time you were hurt, and you’re considering whether to file a negligence claim against the property owner or occupier, then the premises liability elements you must prove are:
- The defendant is the owner or occupier of the land;
- You were an invitee;
- The property owner or occupier owed you the duty of ordinary care;
- The property owner or occupier failed to uphold its duty of ordinary care;
- The breach of duty caused you harm; and
- You suffered a compensable injury.
To discuss how to prove each of these elements in court, contact an Atlanta premises liability attorney at Allen & Scofield Injury Lawyers, LLC. We will conduct an in-depth investigation into your case and gather as much evidence as possible to support your claim. We will thoroughly review each piece of potential evidence to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case and develop a comprehensive strategy to crush the property owner’s potential defenses.
Additionally, we will determine whether there is an applicable insurance policy that covers your injuries. Most businesses have a million-dollar or more insurance policy that covers bodily injuries. The key to maximizing the value of your case is to build a strong case at the earliest possible opportunity.
Premises Liability Compensation
If you were injured while acting as a customer or client on a business’s land, you may pursue compensation for:
- Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
- Past, present, and future medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
- Property damage
