The law says that you have every right to expect business owners, landlords, and private land owners to maintain their property in a safe condition. At Perrotta & Cahn, Attorneys at Law, we agree. When our clients suffer injury because of inadequately maintained or dangerous premises, the property owners can and should be held legally accountable for their actions or failure to act.
Or maybe you have been harmed, or your property has been harmed, by the actions of a person on their own land, or land that adjoins your property. Even if their actions are legal, if harm comes to you or your property as a result of their actions, you may be entitled to compensation for that harm. Every case is different, but we are here to sort through the difficult issues, and to help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
Our lawyers take every client issue related to premises safety seriously. We are available 24/7 when you need us. We accommodate your working schedule, often meeting at night and on weekends if that suits you. With offices in Cartersville, Calhoun and Dalton, we represent injured people in north Georgia and throughout the South.
I Tripped, So It Wasn't The Owner's Fault
Maybe. But maybe not. Owners or other parties responsible for a property owe everyone using that property a reasonable duty to maintain that property in a safe condition. If they knew or should have known of an unsafe condition — such as a tree root that pushed up through a sidewalk, causing a tripping hazard — then they must take corrective action. If they fail to act and someone is injured, they are liable. At Perrotta & Cahn, Attorneys at Law, we are premises liability attorneys representing a wide variety of cases. Some of these incidents include:
- Slip-and-fall hazards
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Negligent security often found in poorly secured parking facilities or darkened areas providing hiding places for assailants
- Hazardous activities, such as a facility in which explosives are being used without the appropriate posted signage
- Activities on adjoining land that cause encroachments, flooding, excessive noise, light or odors, and other activities that harm your right to enjoy your own property
