Property Owners Are Liable For Dangerous Property Conditions
Property owners must 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 injured person may have the right to file a premises liability claim and seek compensation.
At the Law Office of Carlos L. Corless, our personal injury lawyers have more than 35 years of combined experience handling these claims. Our Atlanta office represents clients across Georgia, including those in Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb, Clayton and Cherokee counties.

Evaluating Your Premises Liability Claim
An experienced lawyer can quickly determine whether a property owner was liable and should be the target of a claim. We will review your case to determine if the owner knew or should have known about the hazard. A few indications that the property may be to blame for your injuries include:
- Did similar crimes happen 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 the accident occurred?
- Had a staircase or balcony been left in disrepair?
We will determine if the property owner was at fault. Our lawyers will take the necessary action to recover compensation for the victim.
