Under Georgia premises liability law, accident victims can hold the owner or occupier of property liable for negligently causing or negligently failing to repair, correct or warn about these and other unsafe conditions which lead to personal injury or wrongful death.
The general rule imposed on all Georgia property owners, including public stores is that an owner must exercise ordinary care in keeping the property safe. This does not mean that a property owner has to inspect the premises every second to ensure there is no spill, sharp item, or other hazard present that could cause injury. He or she does have to exercise ordinary care, and that is a question, typically, for a jury to answer. If you find yourself involved in a suit like this one, contact us for help.
