Knowledgeable Guidance For Premises Liability Claims
An accident can happen anywhere. If you have suffered an injury on someone else’s property, it is possible that their negligence played a role in the accident. When this type of liability is present, you may have a viable premises liability claim.
Our personal injury attorneys can help you seek compensation. At Cook & Tolley, LLP, our decades of experience allow us to assemble comprehensive claims on behalf of our Athens clients, and we can assist you and your family as well.
What Types Of Accidents Can Qualify?
A premises liability claim can arise from many different situations. If a business or property owner fosters conditions that lead to an injury, they could very well be at fault. What follows are some common examples of accidents that can potentially result in a premises liability claim:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Fire-related injuries
- Swimming pool accidents
- Inadequate security resulting in a crime
- Poor maintenance that causes injury
- Dog bites or animal attacks
If a property or business owner’s negligence is responsible for your injury, compensation may be available. An experienced personal injury attorney, such as one of ours at Cook & Tolley, LLP, can help evaluate your claim before determining your best course of legal action.
When Is Negligence Present?
Establishing negligence is pivotal to a successful premises liability claim in the state of Georgia. This is done by demonstrating that the property owner violated a duty of care. When a breach of duty causes injury, which then results in damages, a premises liability claim may be appropriate.
A failure to provide a safe environment can constitute a breach of duty. If you suspect that a property owner’s negligence lead to your injury, our attorneys can give you a better understanding of the merits of your claim.
