Cumming Premises Liability Attorney

Cumming Injury Lawyer Explains Premises Liability

A property owner cannot be held responsible for everything that happens on their premises. If a guest, customer or tenant is behaving recklessly or engages in acts that constitute gross negligence, and subsequently suffers a serious injury or is killed, nobody can reasonably consider that the owner of the property where the accident took place is to blame. If, however, someone is hurt in an accident that should have been prevented through reasonable precaution on the part of the property owner, the accident victim or surviving family members may have grounds to sue for monetary damages. This is possible under the legal principle known as premises liability.

A premises liability claim is founded on evidence that the property owner knew - or reasonably should have known - about the hazardous conditions that caused the accident, yet failed to take precautions to prevent the accident from occurring. A common example of this would be in a slip and fall accident in which the injured person's fall was caused by an uncleaned spill on the floor, by a broken stair step, a cluttered walkway, poor lighting, or other dangerous conditions. If it can be proven by a preponderance of the evidence that the owner should have known about such dangers yet did not do anything to remove the danger or even to warn about it, it is most likely possible to sue for personal injury or wrongful death.

Examples of Premises Liability Claims

Another common example of a premises liability claim is in cases of swimming pool accidents occurring in residential pools where there was no four-sided gate or self-latching gate installed to keep unsupervised children out of the area. Similarly, landlords and property owners can sometimes be held responsible for dog bites and similar injuries occurring on the premises. It is even possible in some cases to sue a landlord or hotelier for a robbery, assault or rape that takes place on the property, when the attack might have been prevented through installation of routine security measures to keep intruders out.
