Understanding Premise Liability
Owners and tenants of shopping centers, office buildings, and hotels, among others have an obligation to provide a safe environment for visitors. The property must be maintained sufficiently to ensure visitors do not suffer an injury on wet surfaces, frayed carpeting, unsafe staircases or in a poorly lit parking lot. While accidents can happen at any time, through no fault of the property owner or tenant, when they are negligent in maintaining their property, they can and should be held accountable.
Every day on roadways in southern Georgia, accidents occur. Head, neck, and back injuries can cause long-term health issues. Even in a minor accident, you could suffer a broken bone, injuries to other parts of your body including shoulders, arms, or legs. Any type of injury could mean you are out of work for days, weeks, or even months. Damage to your vehicle, lost wages, and medical bills are some of the financial matters that result from a car accident. Drunk drivers, reckless drivers, or distracted drivers should be held accountable.
If you are a victim of an accident due to someone’s failure to maintain their property, or because they failed to obey standard traffic rules you should consider contacting Law Offices of Bryan Rumker and Greg Sasser. We are committed to representing your interests and will do everything possible to help you recover financially from an accident when you were not at fault.
