Just how many apartment buildings are there in Atlanta? Hundreds of complexes fill the city.

Slip and fall incidents can lead to terrible injuries

Similarly, if a heavily damaged sidewalk causes someone to suffer injuries, or if a store owner fails to clean off a dangerous condition in front of their store, then they could be held accountable via a premises liability lawsuit.
