Holding Property Owners Accountable
Property owners are responsible for maintaining their properties to ensure that anyone who visits these properties will not be injured. Hazards, such as rotten balconies or spilled liquids, need to be fixed in a reasonable period of time and adequate warning of the hazard needs to be provided. All too often, they fail to meet this obligation, and innocent people wind up getting seriously injured.
At Dozier Law, we handle a wide range of premises liability and slip-and-fall accident cases for clients in Macon, Savannah, and throughout Georgia and the Southeast. We have the skill and experience to handle the most difficult and complex premises liability cases. We are dedicated to helping individuals who have suffered injuries caused by negligent property owners.
Injuries from dangerous conditions on a property can be life-changing. We know the emotional and financial toll they can have on a family. We take these cases personally. Our attorneys are aggressive advocates on behalf of our clients. We do not stop fighting until our clients are fairly compensated for their injuries.
We support individuals in the military and represent military members stationed at the Robins Air Force Base (RAFB) and civil servants.
Injuries From Property Defects
In some premises liability cases, there is a problem with the property itself — a hole in a sidewalk or an improperly designed staircase, for instance. In others, a situation such as a spill or water leak makes an area hazardous and leads to a slip-and-fall accident and a serious personal injury.
Injuries From Negligent Security
Another type of premises liability case involves negligent security. People being shot or assaulted in apartment complexes has become an all too frequent occurrence in Macon. It is important that people know that you can recover damages if the company managing your apartment complex failed to provide adequate security measures to keep you safe.
Individuals may also pursue recovery if they have been injured at other venues as well such as concerts or clubs. If you have been robbed, assaulted, or harmed in any way because the property owner failed to provide sufficient security measures, you may be able to file suit.
Injuries From Animal Bites
Dog owners also bear a responsibility to keep their pets from harming other people. Dog bite attacks can lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death.
Of course, the negligent party (or its insurance carrier) may claim the accident was your fault — that you should have seen and avoided the hazard. Our Macon and Savannah, Georgia, premises liability lawyers have extensive trial experience and know-how to gather and present evidence that supports our clients’ claims. We will use our skills and resources to help you pursue maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered.
