What Are Some Common Types of Premises Liability Claims?
If you've been injured on someone else's property in Calhoun, Georgia, you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability claim. Premises liability law holds property owners responsible for maintaining a safe environment for visitors and guests. If something goes wrong, a guest is injured, and an unreasonable hazard caused that injury, then the property owner might be liable for any resulting damages and losses.
Common types of premises liability cases that we can handle include:
- Slip and fall accidents: Slip and falls can happen anywhere, from grocery stores to office buildings. Property owners have a duty to keep their floors clean and dry, fix any uneven or damaged flooring, and provide adequate lighting, so visitors don’t slip or trip and fall.
- Dog bites: If a property owner has a dog that attacks someone, they may be liable for the victim's injuries. Even if the dog had never shown signs of aggression before, it is possible to make a recovery against the dog’s owner in many cases.
- Negligent security: Property owners must take reasonable steps to keep their guests safe from criminal activity, such as providing adequate lighting, securing locks on doors and windows, and hiring security guards if necessary. The level of security measures taken depends on the type of property and its location, too. For example, a late-night bar in an area with a high rate of violent crime should reasonably employ at least one bouncer to deter violent altercations in and near the bar.
- Attractive nuisances: Property owners in Georgia are responsible for maintaining a safe environment that safeguards against attractive nuisances, which are man-made or natural features that may attract children but pose a danger to them. Examples of attractive nuisances can include swimming pools, trampolines, abandoned buildings, and construction sites. If a child is injured on someone else's property due to an attractive nuisance, the property owner may be held liable for the injuries, even if that child was trespassing.
- Toxic exposure: Toxic exposure occurs when a visitor is exposed to hazardous substances such as chemicals, gases, or mold on someone else's property. Property owners have a duty to maintain a safe environment for visitors and guests, which includes securing unsafe materials in such a way that visitors aren’t endangered just for being near.

What Damages Can You Recover Through a Premises Liability Claim?
If you have been injured on someone else's property due to their negligence, you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability claim or lawsuit. We would be happy to show you what types of compensation might be owed to you as the plaintiff.
In Georgia, recoverable damages in a premises liability claim can include:
- Medical expenses: This includes the cost of medical treatment you received for your injuries, such as hospital bills, doctor visits, physical therapy, and medication.
- Lost wages: If your injuries caused you to miss work or if they will prevent you from working in the future, you may be able to recover compensation for lost wages.
- Pain and suffering: You may be entitled to compensation for physical pain and emotional distress caused by your injuries.
- Punitive damages: In rare cases where the property owner's conduct was particularly egregious or reckless, punitive damages may be awarded as a way to punish them and deter others from similar behavior.
