Georgia Premises Liability Law

Under Georgia premises liability law, property owners must keep lawful patrons and visitors safe from dangers. This means they must take reasonable steps to discover and address any hazards. If they fail to do so and someone is injured as a result, they may be held liable for damages.

Common Types of Premises Liability Cases 

So, what kind of accidents do premises liability cases involve? In short, virtually any mishap. 

However, there are some common types, such as:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents: As the name implies, this is when someone falls because of a slick surface, inadequate lighting, or a hazard in a walkway. 
  • Inadequate security: Property owners can be responsible for burglaries, assaults, thefts, and other crimes because of a lack of security measures. 
  • Elevator and escalator accidents: Poor maintenance and mechanical faults can cause these transportation systems to fail and harm people. 
  • Dog bites: If a property owner allows a dangerous dog on their premises, they can be liable if it bites someone. 
  • Falling objects: Should an object fall, strike, and injure a person, whoever owns the property or was responsible for the unsecured object could be liable. 

The Available Damages in Premises Liability Cases 

The available damages in premises liability cases are similar to other personal injury cases. You could seek compensation for all past, present, and future medical expenses associated with the accident. This can include medication, therapies, surgeries, treatment, and physical rehabilitation. You could also recover wages you missed from being unable to work or perform your job as you had done before. Beyond these easily quantifiable damages, you could be entitled to compensation for the physical and emotional hardships your injuries caused.
