In the state of Georgia, premises liability laws state that when a person is injured because of dangerous property conditions, that property's owner or the party responsible for maintenance of the property may be held legally responsible for the victim's injuries and damages. Owners and managers of property have a duty to maintain their property as a safe and secure environment.
Cohen and Hirsch Criminal Defense network of attorneys handle premises liability cases involving slip and falls and nuisance dangers; negligent or inadequate security, animal attacks, and more.
Slip and Fall, Trip and Fall, & Dangerous Conditions
Property owners and managers are responsible for providing and maintaining their property free of dangerous conditions. These are some of the most common types of premises liability cases.
Together, Cohen and Hirsch Criminal Defense network of attorneys has the experience to investigate your case and determine if the property owner or manager knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, knew or should have known that it involved an unreasonable risk of harm and that persons would not realize or appreciate the danger; failed to exercise reasonable care to fix or correct the unsafe condition or to warn people of the risks; and whether or not you had any purpose to know of the dangerous condition.
Simply put, if an owner has a greater knowledge of a dangerous condition on their property and has failed to correct or warn about that dangerous condition, they can be held liable when a person is injured due to the dangerous condition.

Negligent or Inadequate Security
Property owners and managers are responsible for the safety of people who visit their premises. When they fail to provide adequate security, innocent people can suffer serious injuries. In Georgia, crime victims may recover against negligent property owners for not only their physical injuries and medical expenses, but also for the mental and emotional injuries they suffer from these crimes. The duties of a property owner generally fall into three categories in this area: administrative, interior security and external security.
