Atlanta Premises Liability Lawyer
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 premises liability lawyer from our firm at once. At Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C., our attorneys are backed by more than a decade of experience and are
dedicated to helping victims of avoidable injuries obtain fair compensation for the harm that they have suffered.
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 a property owner’s negligence resulted in your injury, we will carefully examine each of the following factors:
- 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
At Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C., your case will be given the individual attention that it deserves. We understand how important the outcome of your case is to you, and our talented legal team is fully prepared to take your case to a jury for a decision if that is what it takes to press forward in seeking a fair settlement. We take cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you won’t be expected to pay any fees up-front of out-of-pocket – you only pay if we secure a favorable outcome.
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 conditions.
To build a strong case, our firm may take the following steps on your behalf:
- Document the scene of the accident / collect evidence
- Interview anyone who witnessed the accident
- Review police reports that were filed after the accident
- Gather and review all of your medical records
