The owner of a property has the duty to keep the property free and clear of any potential dangers to visitors. That means employing adequate security measures. It means keeping the property clean and well maintained. When a property owner fails in that duty, the victim may have the right to file a claim and seek compensation. These claims are referred to as premises liability claims. At the Law Office of Carlos L. Corless in Atlanta, Georgia, we have more than 20 years of experience handling these claims.

We handle cases involving unsafe properties of all types, including motels and hotels, apartments, shopping centers, retail stores, grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Many of the premises liability cases we handle involve representing victims of crimes, such as rape and sexual assault .

Evaluating Your Premises Liability Claim

An experienced lawyer is able to quickly determine whether or not a property owner was liable and should be the target of a claim. We will review the case to find out if the owner knew or should have known about the hazard. Had similar crimes happened on the premises in the past, indicating that security measures should have been put in place or strengthened? Did a spill linger for hours before being slipped on? Had a staircase or balcony been left in disrepair? These are indications that the property owner was to blame.

We will determine if the property owner was at fault and we will take the necessary action to recover compensation for the victim.
