Overview of Premises Liability Law in Georgia

In Georgia, premises liability law is governed by both the statutes and the case law. At its essence, the law establishes the duty of care that property owners owe to those who enter their property. This duty varies depending on the classification of the visitor as an invitee, licensee, or trespasser. 

Georgia law requires property owners to exercise ordinary care in keeping their premises safe for invitees and licensees. Specifically, an invitee, someone present for a mutual benefit with the owner, must be protected from foreseeable harm, and the owner must inspect and correct potential hazards.  

For licensees, individuals who are neither customers nor employees, the owner must prevent willful or wanton injury. Trespassers, on the other hand, are owed the least duty of care, with owners needing only to refrain from causing intentional harm. 

Property owners can be held liable if there is a failure to fulfill these obligations, leading to injury. Understanding these distinctions and how they apply to your case is critical, and it's something that our legal team is equipped to handle with precision and attention to each client's unique situation. 

Key Elements in a Premises Liability Claim 

To successfully pursue a premises liability claim, there are several key elements that must be established.  

Firstly, it is crucial to demonstrate that the property owner had actual knowledge or constructive knowledge of the hazardous condition. This can be done by showing that the property owner either knew about the hazard or should have known about it through reasonable care.  

Secondly, it is important to prove that the injured party was not at fault and did not contribute to the accident in any way. The injured party must have exercised ordinary care for their own safety to strengthen the claim.  

We are dedicated to leaving no stone unturned in establishing and addressing these essential elements to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients. 

Understanding the Statute of Limitations 

In Georgia, like in many legal situations, time is of the essence. When it comes to premises liability cases, there is a statute of limitations of two years in place. This means that you must file a lawsuit for any injuries sustained within this two-year time frame. Reach out to our team promptly so that we can guide you through the process and make sure you do not miss the chance to seek the justice you deserve.
