Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney
Understanding Your Rights as an Injured Victim
The term "premises liability" refers to the duty that a property
owner has to their visitors to keep their premises in a reasonably safe
condition. Customers of businesses have an expectation that the premises
will be free of hazardous conditions or that warnings will be posted to
advise them that a dangerous condition exists. A property owner or manager
should constantly be on alert for potential danger and has an ongoing
responsibility to protect their visitors from foreseeable harm.
Anyone who has been injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of
the owner or manager of a property should discuss the matter with an
Atlanta personal injury lawyer from our firm at once. At Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C., we are dedicated
to helping victims of avoidable injuries obtain fair compensation for
the harm that they have suffered. Not only are we

Establishing Liability in Your Case
Premises liability calls for the property owner to uphold his or her duty
of care, which is to continually inspect their property for the purpose
of identifying and fixing dangerous conditions that could jeopardize the
safety of one or more visitors. In cases where the problem cannot be fixed
immediately, the owner is expected to post proper warning of the potential
dangers. Failure to meet these standards can leave the property owner
or manager liable for any accidents or injuries that result.
To determine if the standard of reasonableness required of property owners
was met, our Atlanta injury attorneys will carefully examine each of the
- The circumstances under which the visitor entered the property
- The purpose of the property (i.e. home, shopping center, etc.)
- The foreseeability of the accident in which you were involved on the property
- The reasonableness of the owner's repair efforts of the dangerous condition

attention that it deserves. We understand how important the outcome of

What if the property owner denies any wrongdoing?
In most cases of premises liability, the property owner will deny that
they were responsible for contributing to the accident. For this reason,
it may be up to you and your lawyer to prove otherwise. In order to do
so, you will need to establish that the property owner knew, or should
have known, about the hazardous conditions that caused the accident in
which you were injured. Even if it cannot be proven that the property
owner had actual knowledge of the hazard, we can still work to show that
another reasonable person would have noticed the danger under similar
