What is premises liability?

Premises Liability is a legal concept that holds property owners and occupiers responsible when an individual gets injured due to unsafe or defective conditions on their property. This liability extends to situations that include slips and falls, inadequate maintenance or security, and hazardous conditions that result in injury.

Injuries Resulting from Premises Liability

Injuries from premises liability can happen anywhere and can range from minor to severe. These incidents often lead to significant legal disputes and require thorough investigation to determine fault. Let’s talk more about a few common scenarios where premises liability can occur:

Store Incident - Slip and Fall

Imagine you’re walking through your favorite grocery store, and suddenly, you slip and fall because of a wet floor that lacks proper signage. In such a situation, the store might be held liable for your injuries and resulting damages.

Apartment Complex Accidents

Unsafe conditions in apartment complexes, like faulty railings or uneven walkways, can cause severe injuries. If your landlord fails to address these safety issues, they could be held responsible for your injury.

Public Building Hazards: Faulty Steps, Elevator, Sidewalk, etc

Though buildings open to the public must be maintained safely, accidents do happen. Faulty steps, malfunctioning elevators, or broken sidewalks can lead to significant injuries, and the responsible party must be held liable.

Negligent Security Personal Injury Claim

Apartment Complex Shooting

In Georgia, landlords are not automatically held liable for injuries caused by third-party criminal actions on their properties. However, if it can be shown that insufficient security measures facilitated an incident, such as a shooting, a negligent security claim may be viable.

This type of premises liability claim argues that the property owner failed to safeguard against foreseeable dangers, including criminal acts like shootings. If a lack of adequate security at an apartment complex played a role in a shooting, this could potentially lead to landlord negligence. This also extends to victims of sexual assault.

Requirements for a Negligent Security Claim in Georgia

Lawful Presence:

The injured party must have had a legal right to be on the premises, whether as a resident or a visitor.

Breach of Duty:

It must be shown that the property owner neglected to take necessary security precautions, such as ensuring working locks or hiring security staff.

Causation:

There must be a direct link between the absence of adequate security and the incident that occurred.

Tangible Losses:

The victim must have suffered quantifiable losses, which can include medical expenses, emotional distress, and potentially funeral costs if applicable.

During a very difficult time, Moorman Law really made the difference in our lives. A family member was being investigated for a serious felony allegation. Nicole Moorman (N.M) and her team were very professional and knowledgable about the Georgia legal system and clearly explained what we needed to do. They are excellent criminal defense attorneys! They acted fast and were instrumental in clearing up the issue for us and preventing potentially disastrous consequences. I can highly recommend Ms. Moorman for anyone needing a very smart, trustworthy defense lawyer.

I was really nervous about my situation and case and I needed an attorney who could make me feel comfortable putting my life in their hands. That’s exactly what I got at Moorman Law Firm. It was easy to develop trust because she creates a space where she’s completely honest with you but also lets you know and shows you that you are well taken care of. She looks at you as a person and not based on your situation which separates her from every other attorney and how she handles your case.
