Personal Injury Attorney in Georgia
When you go into a retail establishment, you expect a certain amount of security such as floors that are not slippery and that are free of hazards and well lit hallways. If the property owners or retail staff fail to provide these minimums of safety and you suffer a serious injury, you should be entitled to compensation.
When you are injured, you need to focus on getting better. You do not need the stress of how you are going to pay your bills and of fighting the insurance company for the money you and your family need. That is why The Berry Law Group is here. Our Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers have experience helping people just like you get the justice they deserve.
Premises Liability Lawyers
Premises liability is a subsection of personal injury law that holds landowners accountable for injuries of their guests due to hazards that could have been avoided had the landowner not been negligent. For example, supermarket staff know that fruits and vegetables in the produce section are likely to fall on the floor periodically. They also know that if stepped on, produce can become slippery and cause customers to slip, fall and injure themselves. Therefore, staff know that they must periodically check to make sure produce that falls on the floor is picked up promptly otherwise someone could get hurt. If a supermarket fails to pick up their fallen produce and someone does slip and injure themselves, the supermarket is considered negligent because the staff was aware the fallen produce could be dangerous and yet did nothing to stop it.
Injuries at a retail store can happen for a number of reasons. They can take place in the parking lot, the store, the entrance, even the bathroom. Some examples include:
- Wet floors
- Torn carpets
- Escalator malfunctions
- Falling objects
- Merchandise in the aisles
- Cracks in the parking lot
- Ice or snow by the entrance
- Poor lighting
