Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney
Atlanta Premises Liability Attorney – Mr. Wotorson was named a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in the United States, an extremely elite group of attorneys in the country. Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their property safe from hazards. If they do not, and hazards are present, there is a chance that you may be hurt while on their property. You deserve to be reasonably protected from harm while shopping, entering a business or visiting a store.
If you have been injured as the result of a property owner’s negligence, the owner may work quickly to repair or cover-up the hazardous conditions that caused your accident. In order to prevent valuable evidence from being removed, it is crucial that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. At THE WOTORSON FIRM, LLP, we work quickly to recover evidence from the scene of the accident if possible.
A negligent property owner may seem sincerely sorry and offer you money for your medical bills. However, the cost of lost wages, ongoing medical treatments and pain and suffering can be difficult to figure. Either the owner themselves or their insurance company may offer you a sum of money that seems reasonable. However, only a lawyer can tell you the true value of your claim. Do not let an insurance company or negligent property owner bully you into accepting their offer. Insurance companies are armed with lawyers who are paid to destroy your case. You need your own attorney to protect you.
At THE WOTORSON FIRM, LLP, we are dedicated to getting you the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
Kinds of Premises Liability Cases
There are many kinds of unsafe conditions on a premise that can be grounds for a premises liability claim or lawsuit including:
Negligent Security: Landlords, hotel owners, apartment management companies, and business owners can be held liable for someone’s personal injuries if they knew (or should have known) that a crime could potentially occur on the property and they did not take preventive action. The attorneys at THE WOTORSON FIRM, LLP can help victims of rape, assault and battery, beatings, and robbery crimes, successfully sue for financial recovery because a property owner or manager failed to warn residents or patrons that similar crimes had recently been committed in the area and/or they neglected to install the proper safety devices (surveillance cameras, proper lighting at all entrances and exits, etc.).
Slip/Trip and Fall Accidents: This is one of the most common kinds of premises liabilityaccidents. Some of the more common conditions that cause injury are:
- Improper maintenance
- Wet or slippery floors
- Spills or other substances on floors
- Broken or cracked sidewalks
Defective Products and Hazardous Conditions: Property owners and managers are supposed to make sure that any defective products or hazardous conditions are immediately repaired or removed from a premise. Our attorneys can represent clients who have been seriously hurt on someone else’s property because of faulty electrical wiring, swimming pools with defective drain systems, walls with toxic mold, or other dangers. In certain cases, it may be necessary to file claims and lawsuits against negligent maintenance companies and the manufacturers of defective products.
