Many people in and around the Atlanta area live in residential complexes that have common areas that are the responsibility of the property management company or landlord to maintain. These common areas can include lobbies, stairwells, and hallways that have the potential to have dangerous conditions that may cause injuries. Personal injury law allows for people injured in these types of accidents to recover for their losses if they are able to establish that their accident was caused by the negligence of another. The attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are available to review the facts of your accident at no charge to you and advise you as to whether you have claim.

After an accident occurring at a residential complex, victims should be certain to document as many facts about the accident as possible.

Finally, be sure to seek medical attention for any injuries you have sustained.
