Owning property comes with certain responsibilities that are owed to the rest of the city. It’s your duty to protect lawful, non-trespassing visitors from injuries caused by dangerous conditions on your property. These hazardous conditions may include uneven flooring or sidewalks, unmarked stairs, inadequate lighting, buildings not built to code, dog bites, and even icy, wet, or snow-covered sidewalks, walkways, and stairs that you failed to clear properly. If you’ve been injured in an accident or slip-and-fall in the Atlanta area due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to legal compensation through a premises liability claim.
A slip-and-fall occurs when a person slips or trips on the premises of another person, resulting in an injury. There are more than eight million slip-and-fall injuries reported in the U.S. every year. In fact, the only cause of injury that ranks higher than slip-and-falls is auto accidents. Slip-and-falls can cause several types of debilitating injuries, ranging from broken bones, cuts and abrasions to more serious head and brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Slip-and-falls can be especially dangerous for seniors. It’s been estimated that every year some 16,000 Americans aged 65 and older die from slip-and-fall injuries.
