Premises Liability and Slip & Fall Injuries


Experienced Help with Your Injury

Premises liability law in Georgia allows an injured individual to make a recovery against a negligent person or company who is in possession of the land, residential or commercial property or premises where the injury took place.

We offer representation for all premises injury claims, including the three most common:

  • Slip-and-Fall/Trip and Fall Injuries
  • Negligent Security Accidents
  • Dog Bite Injuries

Understanding Premises Liability Law

A key component in determining whether you might have a successful premise liability claim is to determine what your status was on the property. Were you an invitee or a person who is invited to enter or remain on the property for a commercial or business benefit? Were you a licensee or a person invited to enter or remain on the premises for a purpose other than business related, such as a social guest? Or were you a trespasser, a person who entered the property without express or implied permission? Your status as an invitee, licensee or trespasser determines the extent of duty the owner or possessor of the premises has to insure your safety.

Once we can help you determine what duty the landowner owed to you, we can advise you as to whether that person failed to fulfill his/her duty to you. The landowner’s failure to fulfill its duty to you results in a premises liability claim which you can seek to recover money for the injuries you sustained including money to cover your medical bills and pain and suffering.
