Help After A Slip, Trip, Assault Or Dog Bite

When you have been injured on someone else's property, your case is generally considered under the umbrella of premises liability. In a nutshell, the property owner or tenant might be liable for damages in a premises liability case if they were aware of or should have been aware of a dangerous condition on their property and failed to correct it. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist.

The classic premises liability case is the slip-and-fall injury. Someone is injured by slipping or tripping on a hazard that the property owner knew about or should have known about. This could be a slippery floor at a store or an uneven sidewalk in front of a building, for example. At The Carnell Law Firm in metro Atlanta, we are committed to helping people who have suffered personal injury as a result of a premises liability incident.

Know Your Rights When You've Been Hurt On Someone's Property

Slipping and falling as a result of a wet floor, icy sidewalk or other hazard is not the only way someone might be involved in a premises liability case. You might wish to speak with a lawyer if you or a loved one is hurt in any number of ways:

  • Negligent security at a bar or nightclub
  • Incidents in parking lots
  • Criminal acts committed on properties by third parties such as theft, robbery or assault
  • Bitten by a dog

Was Your Child Injured?

In addition, children can be injured as a result of playing on defective or damaged playground equipment. Also, kids might be drawn to something that might look like fun but is actually dangerous — what is known as an "attractive nuisance." This could be in the form of a ladder left propped up against a building, a swimming pool or other water source left accessible by an unlocked gate or missing fence, or any number of other hazards.
