Common Causes of Atlanta Premises Liability Injuries

In Atlanta, premises liability claims usually involve injuries sustained on someone else's property. An incident may occur at a residence, on public property, or at a business location.

There are different legal rules and maintenance standards for different types of premises. To prove premise liability, the owner must have known or should have known of unsafe conditions and ignored them, which resulted in the injury.

  • Poorly maintained sheds or workshops on the premises
  • A malfunctioning elevator, escalator, or other accessibility equipment
  • Bites from animals, including dogs that are not properly restrained
  • Accidents involving swimming pools, such as drownings, slips, and falls
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals exposure
  • A falling object, such as a tree branch or a storage item that is not properly stowed
  • Injury or assault caused by inadequate building security

What to do After a Premises Liability Accident in Atlanta

Have you been injured on someone else's property? Here are some suggestions for your next steps from the Atlanta premises liability lawyers at Broughton Accident & Injury Lawyers.

Gather evidence at the scene of your accident, including:

  • You should take photos of the walkway or structure where you were injured.
  • Photographs of what you were wearing at the time, including your shoes and clothing.
  • If you sustained any visible injuries, such as cuts or bruises, take photos of them. 
  • The location where the injury occurred should be photographed to prove the weather and lighting conditions.
  • Any witnesses to the injury should be documented, including their names, phone numbers, and addresses.
  • Including the names, phone numbers, and addresses of the property owner or any associated parties.

Due to the fact that most premises liability cases happen on private property, you may not be able to call a police officer to file a police report. You should, however, ask if there is a procedure in place for incident reporting if you are in a building or property owned by a business or organization. It is also a good idea to ask if there are any cameras on the property and to ask for the footage to be sent to you. 

In addition to seeking medical attention for your injuries, you should consult with an Atlanta premises liability attorney like Broughton Accident & Injury Lawyers as soon as possible. A premises liability attorney from our firm can review the facts of your case and advise you on your next steps. Our team has been negotiating fair and just settlements for premises liability victims for nearly 20 years, so you can concentrate on getting better while we fight for your rights.

Types of Atlanta Premises Liability Cases

Below you will find examples of cases that our Atlanta premises liability attorneys have successfully negotiated.

Slip and Fall Accidents

The majority of premises liability cases we see in Atlanta involve slip and fall injuries. These accidents usually occur when property owners fail to maintain structures, light walkways, or clean spills in a safe manner. 

Escalator and Elevator Accidents

It is the responsibility of building owners to maintain accessibility options within their buildings, as well as to notify patrons and visitors in case of malfunctioning equipment. Spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and friction burns can result from an accident caused by the building owner's negligence. 

Swimming Pool Accidents

Many swimming pool accidents occur when children have access to an unsupervised pool. In order to prevent injuries to unsupervised children or other individuals, local laws dictate the preventative measures for public and residential pools. As premises liability attorneys in Atlanta, we have helped numerous swimming accident victims receive the compensation they deserve.

Personal injury lawyers could advise you and your family about your legal options if you have been injured in an Atlanta swimming/diving accident caused by negligence or carelessness. An example would be if a diving board was not maintained properly. As a result, you slipped and fell on the board and were injured. An attorney who specializes in Atlanta swimming accident cases can help hold the company liable for their negligence.

Alternatively, you may have been hit by a motorboat, jet ski, or other aqueous vehicles while swimming. Medical care lost wages, and other rehabilitation costs could be covered by the operator of that vehicle, as well as by its manufacturer and designer.

Factors That May Influence the Severity of Your Injury Include:

  • Speed and angle of impact
  • Amount of time it takes to receive medical care
  • The quality of medical treatment provided
  • Other injuries or wounds that occurred simultaneously (i.e. broken bones, gashes, contusions, traumatic brain injury)
  • Pre-accident health and stamina of the victim

Atlanta Premises Liability and Wrongful Death Claims

It is possible for premises accidents to result in the death of a loved one in the most serious cases. Family members or dependents of the deceased may be able to sue the property owner for their loved one's wrongful death. Wrongful death claims are typically filed by the decedent's spouse, children, or other dependents. The siblings or parents of a deceased person who dies in a premises liability accident may be able to file a claim for damages in some cases.
