For the protection of tenants living in Georgia apartment buildings, property owners and managers are obligated by law to keep their living areas safe and free from dangers. Otherwise, factors such as poor maintenance, inadequate securing and lighting, and animal attacks could cause serious injuries to renters or guests who have the right to pursue damages based on the landlord's or manager's negligence.
If you are in similar circumstances, our attorneys will work hard to fight for your rights. When it comes to premises liability incidents and preventable accidents, our goal is to obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible for your injuries. If you were injured in a slip-and-fall incident because your landlord failed to maintain your living area, or you were raped or criminally assaulted due to the fact your apartment building was not secure, our attorneys might be able to help you. We also take on premises liability cases associated with dog bites, murder or the wrongful death of your loved one.
Whether your damages are psychological in nature, or you are suffering physical injuries that have resulted in medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages, we may be able to help you pursue damages by holding the property owner or manager accountable for their carelessness. If the property was unsafe, and those in charge of maintaining the property did nothing to improve the safety of the building, they could be held liable for negligence.
