Cash Krugler Fredericks handle various types of premises liability cases, which involve the negligence of property owners to maintain their property in a safe condition. The responsibility can also extend to those who manage or provide security to the property as well. These cases often involve apartment complexes, hotels, resorts, retail stores and homes, among others, where the property owner either knew or should have known of dangers or hazards which in turn result in an injury or death to someone visiting the property. Common premises liability actions include:
Failure to remove foreign substances left on floors or failure to block off the area to prevent people from falling
Failure to ensure walkways and floors are free from rain, ice or snow
Failure to repair physical hazards on properties, such as faulty or dangerous stairs, decks, etc.
Failure to rope off dangerous areas, such as construction sites, holes and elevator shafts
Failure to provide adequate security at apartments, hotels, and commercial properties in the face of certain known dangers or risks to patrons or tenants, including but not limited to criminal attacks on the property
Just because someone is injured on someone else’s property does not mean the property owner is necessarily at fault. In Georgia, the law requires property owners to take steps to learn of dangers and hazards on their property and to correct those dangers so visitors and tenants do not get hurt. When the property owner fails to correct the unsafe condition and someone is injured, the injured person may have a claim.
A number of the premises liability cases we handle involve clients who were the victims of a criminal attack on someone else’s property. These cases are commonly referred to as “negligent security” premises cases. Many of these cases involve the death of a family member. While not all crimes can be prevented, property owners and businesses have a duty to analyze the criminal history at their property and take appropriate steps in an effort to deter and try to prevent future crimes. In many of the cases we have handled, despite knowledge of a number of crimes on their properties, the property owners failed to take simple steps which could have helped prevent and deter the attacks from happening. In handling these cases, we work with local law enforcement to establish the criminal history at the property and retain qualified experts in security, property management, and crime prevention, to establish the security measures that should have been taken.
