Apartment Complex Liability

When you move into a new apartment, you assume that the grounds and apartments will be properly maintained. You deserve to feel safe in your new home, and if you are injured due to poor maintenance, you may be entitled to damages.

Liability in Georgia

In order to prove a negligence claim in Georgia, four elements must be present:

  • The property owner has a duty to conform to a standard of conduct. Property owners have the responsibility to keep their property safe and free of hazards.
  • The standard of conduct is breached. There is a breach if the property owner does not perform necessary repairs on their premises.
  • The breach resulted in injury. The injured person must be able to prove that the failure of the property owner to maintain their property led to injury. The injured individual must also show that the injury occurred as a result of no fault of their own, or if the injury could have been avoided by using proper caution.
  • The injury resulted in damages. The injured person must prove that the injury resulted in damages such as a lack of income or medical bills.

Types of Apartment Complex Maintenance

Property owners are liable for proper maintenance to the facilities they own. This includes maintaining walkways, proper lighting and maintaining fences and gates around swimming pools. They must also maintain stairs, balconies and parking lots.

If you see evidence of improper maintenance in your apartment complex, it is important that you report the hazard immediately. Follow up with the property manager to ensure that repairs are made. If the repairs are not performed in short order, call the owner and report the hazard. If nothing is done and you or someone is injured due to the negligence of the property manager or owner, you may be entitled to damages.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
