Understanding Georgia Premises Liability Law
Georgia law stipulates that owners and managers of properties may be held liable for injury accidents on their property that are caused by failure to exercise ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe.
Examples of premises liability cases include:
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents — Injuries result from slipping or tripping due to a dangerous condition that was known and not removed or repaired promptly.
- Falling objects — Serious injury can result from being struck by falling merchandise or other objects that are improperly stored, or due to disrepair.
- Insufficient security — Legal action may be warranted if you are injured or become a victim of a criminal assault in which it can be shown a property owner or manager failed to provide adequate lighting or other protection.
- Building code violations — These cases involve claims by people who are injured due to building code violations such as structural defects, substandard electrical wiring, missing or inoperable smoke and fire detectors, malfunctioning sprinklers, inaccessible fire exits, unsafe balconies or stairs, and more.
