Premises Injury Hazards

There are many types of injuries that can occur when you are on another person’s business or personal property. The most common are trip and fall accidents where a person is unable to walk safely due to poorly lit stairs, icy walkways, slippery leaks or spills, or other hazards which can lead to serious injury. Dog bites are another common occurrence on the property of others. Though dogs and some other animals can make fine pets, an uncontrolled or unrestrained animal can inflict devastating injuries.

Many victims of such injuries are unaware of their rights in these situations. In most cases, a property owner has a responsibility to provide reasonable safeguards for people who are on his or her property legally, such as visitors invited to a home or customers at a business.

How Our Firm Can Help

In cases of premises liability, Georgia’s laws can be complicated. You must be able to prove that the owner of the premises had knowledge of the dangerous condition and avoided fixing it. It’s also important to understand that premises liability does not mean the visitor has no responsibility to be reasonably careful.

At the Law Offices of William F. Underwood, III, P.C., we have extensive experience in Albany, GA premises liability law, and can help our clients through the legal maze to reach a fair settlement for injuries they received while on another person’s property.
