Georgia Premises Liability – Negligent Maintenance
It’s a fact of life: Most people spend time on others’ property every time they leave home, whether it’s for work, shopping and errands, or enjoying some time off. Sometimes things don’t go as planned, however, and people get hurt because someone was careless about keeping their property safe. When that happens, the property owner may be liable for the resulting injuries.
Owners and occupiers of real property in the state of Georgia have a duty to exercise ordinary care to keep their premises and approaches safe. This includes a duty to make a reasonable inspection of the premises for potentially hazardous conditions. If and when such conditions are found, and are not open or obvious, the owner/occupier has a duty to either make the hazard safe, or to warn invitees of its existence. If the owner/occupier is negligent when inspecting the premises, making a hazard safe, or warning of a hazard, he or she can be held liable by any invitees who are injured as a result of that negligent failure to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition.
