Premise Liability Lawyers in Riverdale

Have You Been Injured on Someone Else’s Property?

Premises liability is an area of law that holds property owners legally responsible for accidents that occur on their property due to unsafe conditions, especially those that result in injury to another person.

The person who has been injured on the owner’s property needs to be someone who was invited on to the property. Trespassers are not usually protected under the premises liability law. There are also cases where a person is injured on the owner’s property by a third person. This is referred to as “third party premises liability,” and these cases represent a highly complex and dynamic area of tort law.

If you have been injured while on someone’s property, contact the Law Offices of Falanga & Chalker. Our premise liability attorneys in Riverdale, Alpharetta, Greensboro, and Ellijay can help.

Children & Premise Liability

When it comes to children on an owner’s property, the owner must give a warning to the child to let them know if there is any dangerous conditions on the premises that are likely to cause serious bodily injury or death. The property owner is held to a higher standard where dangerous conditions exist with the risk of children being injured. In order to accept liability, the owner must have failed to exercise reasonable care to eliminate the danger or otherwise protect children from harm.

Common Injuries

Some premises liability accidents may cause relatively minor injuries such as:

  • Bruises
  • Scrapes
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones

These injuries may not cause irreparable or long-term damage; however, there can still be legitimate grounds for a premises liability case. Catastrophic injuries cause severe damage physically, emotionally, and psychologically. These injuries often require intensive ongoing medical treatment. Brain, spinal cord, and burn injuries are common types of catastrophic injuries.

You Need Knowledgeable Legal Counsel

Perhaps the most difficult element an injured person must prove is the owner’s knowledge of the condition causing the accident or injuries. The injured person must prove that the owner knew or should have known about the hazardous conditions. Premises liability laws are highly complicated due to the varying case law that has developed in this area. At the Law Offices of Falanga & Chalker, our premise liability lawyers in Riverdale selectively take cases so that we commit the time and energy that every situation deserves.
