When you visit a friend's or neighbor's house, you have all the same rights to basic safety as you do in a store or business. Likewise, you are expected to keep your house and yard reasonably safe. It seems obvious that homeowners would want to keep their homes and land free of hazards for their own safety, but sadly this is not always the case. At The Berry Law Group, our personal injury lawyers can help clients who have been seriously injured due to unsafe conditions at other people's houses.
There are a number of ways you can hurt yourself on unmaintained property. You could suffer and slip and fall inside the house or a trip and fall outside. Dog bites and swimming pool accidents are both leading causes of domestic injuries in Georgia. Georgia premises liability lawyers can help you get justice for any slip and fall, dog bite or swimming injuries you experience. Another very common accident that can happen on neighbor's property is a deck collapse. If decks are not properly maintained, they can become weak and break under the pressure of people standing on it. Being on a deck when it breaks can lead to serious injuries. At The Berry Law Group, we have personal injury lawyers who can help you with your deck collapse injury case.
It is important to remember that in premises liability cases, it is not your neighbors and your friends you will have to fight for compensation, it is there insurance company. It does not matter what your relationship is with the homeowner, they will have little say in what your compensation ends up being. Hiring a Georgia injury lawyer can be very helpful in these circumstances because we will handle everything and you can avoid any discomforts you have with asking for compensation.
