Aggressive Advocacy in Premises Liability

Slip-and-Fall Accidents • Negligent Security Assaults

Premises liability refers to the duty of a property owner to provide safe conditions. Businesses have the highest obligation to ensure the safety of visitors. When an accident occurs because of dangerous conditions or poor security, the owner may be liable for monetary damages.

Attorney Doug Wilde is not afraid to fight corporations and their insurance companies to get the compensation his clients deserve in premises liability cases. Our Peachtree City law firm represents clients in Fayette County, Georgia and throughout South Metro Atlanta.

Slip and Falls and Safety Hazards

We will pursue claims in premises liability for the failure of restaurants, grocery stores, retail stores and apartment buildings to maintain a safe environment or address dangerous conditions:

  • Spilled liquids or foreign substances
  • Freshly mopped floors without warning signs
  • Falling merchandise or protruding objects
  • Construction defects (stairs, railings, doors)
  • Broken pavement or potholes
  • Poor lighting in hallways, stairways or parking lots

Slips, trips and falls can cause very serious injuries: torn cartilage and knee injuries, broken wrists or shoulder injuries, broken hips and ankles, even dental damage and head injuries. We will seek witness statements and maintenance records, and search for building code violations or a pattern of similar negligence.

Negligent Security

Property owners also may be liable if you were attacked because of inadequate security measures. Owners of apartments, hotels, parking lots, night clubs or businesses in high-crime areas have a particular duty to keep patrons safe. Doug Wilde can pursue damages on behalf of victims of muggings, sexual assault, beatings, kidnapping or fatal assaults. He will examine negligence relating to lack of lighting, cameras or security staff, or failure to fix doors, gates or windows that enabled the attacker to gain entry.

If the owner knew or should have known of the dangers, we will aggressively pursue compensation for your medical care, lost wages, any permanent disability or emotional trauma. In assault cases, the post-traumatic stress can be more debilitating than the physical injuries.
