Premises Liability

Premises Liability

A spill, an object in a walkway, or a missing stair may all cause a person to slip and fall. When these accidents occur on another's property due to the property owner’s or manager's blatant negligence, the victim may be able to file a personal injury claim.

Under Georgia law, a person injured in a slip-and-fall accident must satisfy the following two elements to have a valid claim:

          1. The owner had actual knowledge of the dangerous condition or should have reasonably known
               through the use of due care that the dangerous condition existed.

          2. The injured victim was unaware of the dangerous condition.

It is important to contact Scott Pryor as soon as possible following a slip-and-fall accident since, with the passing of time, witnesses may forget important details or key pieces of evidence may be lost or destroyed. In some cases, depositions need to be taken of the current store or restaurant employees to establish that the area where the accident occurred was not regularly cleaned or maintained.
