Henry County Premises Liability Attorney
Premises liability claims relate to injurious accidents that are caused by property owner negligence. Slip and fall accidents are a prime example of a premises liability claim, and this is important because falls are one of the leading causes of hospitalizations. If a property owner’s negligence caused you to be injured in an accident, an experienced premises liability lawyer in Henry County can help.
The Property Owner Owes You a Duty of Care
Wherever you head during the course of your day – whether it’s to the store, the dentist, a restaurant, a government building, the office, or nearly anywhere else – the property owner owes you and all other invited guests (anyone who isn’t trespassing) a duty of care that includes keeping the premises in a reasonably safe condition. In this capacity, reasonably safe means a degree of safety that is in keeping with what the majority of property owners would do under similar circumstances.
The Necessary Elements of Your Premises Liability Claim
In order to bring a successful premises liability claim, you must be able to demonstrate all of the following elements:
- The property owner or manager of the premises where you were injured failed to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition.
- The property owner or manager of the premises where you were injured knew about – or should have known about – the safety issue.
- The property owner or manager either failed to rectify the safety issue or failed to adequately warn visitors about the safety issue.
- The safety issue in question was the direct cause of your injury.
