Defective Conditions on the Premises Injury Lawyer
Premises liability involves claims by an individual who suffers an injury on the property of another. The injured person may bring a claim against the owner of the property or the manager in charge of the property at the time of the injury. However, the owner or manager of a Georgia property is not automatically liable for a claimant’s injury on their premises. The victim must prove the owner was negligent and that the owner’s negligence caused or contributed to the victim’s injury.
When defective conditions on the premises are present, the focus becomes negligence. Who allowed defective conditions to develop on the premises that could pose a risk for injury to patrons, employees or passerby? As you may imagine, such claims can become complex, with multiple parties possibly sharing responsibility. This is why if you suffer an injury on someone’s property because of defective conditions, your first call, after receiving medical attention, should be to Stockbridge personal injury lawyer Darrell T. Farr.
