Filing a premise liability claim in Georgia: What you must know!

Property owners are expected to adhere to safety norms and ensure their properties and premises are safe for those who legally visit them. Unfortunately, numerous property accident cases are reported in Georgia each year, and victims are constantly grappling with the process of recovering compensation. If you have a premise liability claim, meet the lawyers of LOURIE, CHANCE, FORLINES, CARTER & KING, PC for a case evaluation. In this post, we have underlined the things worth knowing.

An overview of premises liability claims

What is a premises liability claim? If you slip and get injured on someone’s property, you may have a claim. However, there are elements of such cases. Firstly, you must not be someone who was trespassing on the property. For instance, if you entered a home to rob and got injured by the yard obstacles, you are likely to have criminal charges pressed against you. However, if you were visiting a poorly maintained property where you had gone for legitimate work, you may have a case. Slip and fall injuries are the most common. You may also have a case where you suffered injuries because there was a fire and the premises didn’t have equipment for fire protection.

Who is liable?

For premises liability claims, the biggest question is liability. In some cases, the property owner is directly responsible, while in other situations, general contractors, managers, and electricians could be parties to such claims. Establishing liability for premises liability claims often requires an extensive investigation. Time is everything in such circumstances. Note that the statute of limitations in Georgia gives you two years to file a lawsuit.

How much time will it take?

There is no one answer to that question. Some premises liability claims are inherently complex and can take months to settle, while others can be completed in just a few weeks. If the case goes to trial, it can even take years. Mediation is often better.

How much can you recover?

There are multiple variables that determine what you can get for a premises liability claim. The standard range is between $4,000 and $75,000. Let an attorney evaluate the case and give you an estimated amount. The damages you can recover include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain & suffering.
