If you have been injured on residential or commercial property, you might be curious about your legal options. Property owners or managers may be liable for damages in certain circumstances, and it could be beneficial to speak with a personal injury attorney about your incident.

Whether your incident occurred at a private home, shopping center, restaurant, or other location, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Do not hesitate to contact a Gwinnett County premises liability lawyer for more information about the legal process. A seasoned attorney could provide advice and guidance regarding liability and damages in your case.

Property Owners’ Duty of Care

An important aspect of any premises liability case is the legal classification of the injured party at the time of the accident. The duty of care which a property owner or manager owes to a visitor on their property varies depending on the individual’s legal classification.

A property owner owes the highest duty of care to an invitee, or someone who was invited onto the land. Some common examples of invitees include social guests in a private home and paying customers in a store. If a property owner’s failure to exercise reasonable care in maintaining the premises leads to an invitee’s injury, the owner may be liable for damages.

A trespasser is someone who enters a property without the property owner or manager’s permission or consent. Pursuant to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated § 51-3-3, a property owner does not owe a duty of care to a trespasser. The owner must, however, refrain from willfully injuring a trespasser.

Because the success of a lawsuit could depend on the victim’s legal classification, it may be beneficial to consult with a premises liability lawyer in Gwinnett County. A seasoned attorney could provide a detailed explanation of these legal classifications and analyze the facts of a case to determine the duty of care owed to the injured party.

Hazardous Conditions on a Property

In order to avoid injuring individuals who lawfully enter their property, owners or managers should inspect the premises for dangerous conditions and mark or fix any known hazards. If a property owner or manager fails to fix or warn of a dangerous condition and a lawful entrant sustains an injury due to that hazard, the owner or manager could be liable for the injuries.

Common hazards include:

  • Holes
  • Defective railings
  • Broken stairs
  • Torn or ripped carpet
  • Spilled substances
  • Falling objects

A premises liability attorney in Peachtree Corners could help gather evidence and analyze documents for relevant information regarding specific hazards on a property.
