Damages You May Recover for Your Rome, GA, Premises Liability Claim
When you ask for damages in your claim, you’re usually asking for monetary compensation that will help you get back to the way you were before the injury occurred. In Georgia, you may file a claim for special damages, which have a specific cost associated with them, and for general damages, which may not have a set dollar amount assigned.
Special damages may include:
- Medical costs, such as an emergency room visit, hospital stay, surgery, prescriptions, rehabilitation, physical therapy, medical devices, prosthetics, short-term and long-term care, in-home care, and future medical needs.
- Reduced or lost income which may include the time you cannot work while recovering from your injuries, a long-term reduction in income if your injuries prevent you from engaging in your previous work activities, or permanently lost income if you cannot resume any sort of work due to your injuries.
- Replacement or repair of any personal property that was damaged during the incident which caused your injury.
General damages may include:
- Pain and suffering experienced during the incident and initial recovery period, as well as any anticipated long-term pain and suffering from the injuries.
- Mental anguish, anxiety, or depression
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Impaired quality of life
- Loss of consortium with partner
- Loss of or change in relationships
A court seldom awards punitive damages but can punish the person responsible if their malicious or willful actions caused injuries to another.
Our attorneys help you identify and attach costs to special and general damages and determine if the pursuit of punitive damages is appropriate as we assist you in the assembly of a strong claim.
Georgia law says if the injured person is partially responsible for the injury, they may receive less than 100% of the damages awarded to them. For instance, if the court finds that you were 30% responsible for being injured, you will receive 70% of awarded damages rather than 100%.
Our attorneys will address this issue during the initial consultation to help you understand if this may apply to your case.

How Our Premises Liability Lawyer Can Support You
Filing a claim for an injury caused by the malicious intent or negligence of a property owner or manager in Roma, GA, is different from filing a claim for a personal injury. Our attorneys help you decipher that difference and guide you through each step of the process to ensure that you receive the best outcome possible.
Property owners and their managers in Rome are required to keep the premises reasonably safe for those who come on the property, including but not limited to the following:
- Delivery people
- Business associates
- Trespassers (under certain circumstances)
It can be difficult to know which circumstances might be considered unsafe due to negligence or malicious intent and which injuries are not likely the result of negligence or malicious intent on the part of the property owner or manager.
Examples of negligence or malicious intent creating unsafe conditions may include:
- Flooring which may be uneven, wet, or even broken
- Inadequate lighting or light fixtures or bulbs that don’t work
- Exposed electrical wires
- Open construction areas
- No warning signs around dangerous areas
- Uneven or broken sidewalks or paved areas
- Nonexistent or broken stair railings or steps
Our Rome slip and fall lawyers can help you make the determination of where the fault lies, which could affect where you might file your claim.
