No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Slips, trips, falls from heights and other premises-related accidents can cause severe physical and psychological trauma. If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation; but, in order to recover your losses, you will need to be able to prove both the cause and the extent of your injuries. Our Macon premises liability attorney handles claims against property owners in Georgia, and we can use our experience to help you win the compensation you deserve.
Many different factors can lead to dangerous falls and other premises-related accidents. Broadly speaking, however, these factors can be divided into three categories: (i) negligent design and construction, (ii) negligent property maintenance, and (iii) product defects.
Negligent design and construction are common factors in premises liability cases involving falls. Stairs that are too steep, handrails that have not been securely installed and inadequate lighting are just a few examples of issues that can present unexpected hazards. Design and construction errors can lead to various other types of accidents as well, from electrocutions to near-drownings.
Negligent property maintenance is another common factor in accidents involving falls and other types of traumatic events. Examples of common maintenance issues include (but are by no means limited to):
In some cases, premises will have been properly designed, built and maintained, but they will still be dangerous. In these cases, accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation for product defects. Flooring materials that are slippery or that crack even when properly maintained, faulty electrical components, and defective doors and windows are just a few examples of countless potential causes of slips, falls, and other premises-related accidents.
In addition to proving the cause of your accident, in order to file a successful premises liability claim you must also be able to prove the extent of your injuries.
