Atlanta is a big city, which is why, naturally, it is full of apartment buildings and other complexes where tenants will rent their homes from landlords. Though Atlanta boasts many wonderful apartment buildings, unfortunately, not all apartment buildings are safe, and if you’ve been injured as a result of your landlord’s negligence, our Atlanta apartment accident lawyer is here to help. Contact Steven Jones Injury Law to learn more about apartment accidents and how we can help fight for your rightful compensation if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one.

Causes of Apartment Accidents
Landlords who rent their properties out to tenants are legally obligated to ensure that their apartments are safe to live in. While most landlords truly care about the well-being of their tenants, unfortunately, other landlords do not, and as long as you can prove that you were injured as a direct result of your landlord’s actions/inaction, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid premises liability claim. Some of the most common causes of apartment accidents that our firm sees are as follows:
- Failing to ensure smoke/carbon monoxide detectors are installed
- Failing to ensure any playgrounds on the premises is safe
- Failing to remove weather-related hazards timely
- Failing to maintain apartment elevators/stairwells
- Unsafe apartment parking lot or sidewalk conditions
If you’ve been injured in an apartment accident, our Atlanta apartment accident lawyer can seek compensation for two types of damages on your behalf: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages deal with the financial cost of your injury, while non-economic damages deal with the emotional toll your accident took on you. With non-economic damages, we can sue for emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.
Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Georgia is two years, which means that you should not wait more than two years from the date of your accident to sue your landlord. If you do, you may lose your right to sue forever.
