Fundamentals of Georgia Premises Liability

By Grant Law Office on July 14, 2011

Land and property owners in Georgia have a responsibility to keep their property safe and in good repair for visitors, be it a grocery store, bank, shopping mall, doctor’s office or parking lot. If the property owner does not fulfill this responsibility, visitors, or invitees, may be entering dangerous conditions resulting from faulty construction, poor or improper maintenance, and even negligent security. If the dangerous condition causes injury, the Georgia property owner may be held liable for any losses suffered by the injured victim.

According to Georgia code § 51-3-1, “Where an owner or occupier of land, by express or implied invitation, induces or leads others to come upon his premises for any lawful purpose, he is liable in damages to such persons for injuries caused by his failure to exercise ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe.”
