Premises Liability Archives

The definition and effects of inadequate property security

When you are on someone else’s property in Georgia, the property owner is responsible for providing adequate security. However, we at Garland, Samuel & Loeb understand that security isn’t always up to standard. In situations like this, you may suffer unnecessary harm or loss.

What are the definition and examples of premises liability?

If you have been injured on someone else’s property before, or if someone has been injured on your property in Georgia, you may have a premises liability case on your hands. But what exactly is premises liability, and what sort of accidents can be slotted into this category?

Industrial toxins a danger in Georgia

The State of Georgia receives billions in revenue from the production of broiler chickens, peanuts, pecans, and watermelons, according to New Georgia Encyclopedia. Being a leader in agriculture requires producers to use a variety of industrial methods and tools. The toxic byproducts of these processes can be hazardous to the health of the animals and people who live and work near the places that generate them.

Falls No. 1 cause of traumatic brain injury

Falls are considered the number one cause of traumatic brain injuries according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the United States, 40 percent of all TBI’s that resulted in death, a visit to a hospital’s emergency department or hospitalization were caused by a fall during the period of 2006 through 2010. For people living in Atlanta, these falls may include nursing home falls, falls at work or falls that occur on public or private property.

Apartment building premises liability considerations

Thousands of people throughout Atlanta and the entire state of Georgia live in apartment buildings and complexes. In addition to offering temporary housing options to tenants, apartment living provides the convenience and financial savings of not having to maintain a property or landscaping. That also means, however, that tenants must rely on landlords and/or property owners to create a safe living environment for them.

When should I file a premises liability suit in Georgia?

If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a claim. According to Georgia law, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a premises liability lawsuit. That incident could involve a slip-and-fall, a hazardous condition or an elevator accident, just to name a few.
