Slip and Fall
Slip and fall claims in Georgia are based on injuries sustained by someone from slipping, tripping, or falling. A property owner may be liable to someone injured in a slip and fall when they are negligent in up-keeping or repairing their premises. Slip and falls are one of the most common types of premises liability cases. However, although common, slip and fall cases can cause life-altering injuries. Property owners can be held liable for their negligence if”
- They created a dangerous condition which caused the slip and fall. This is known as “active negligence.” An example of this is if a restaurant employee mops the floor but fails to place “wet floor” warning signs in the area.
- They knew, or should have known, about the hazard yet failed to correct it. This is known as “passive negligence.” An example of this would be if a customer spills liquid on the floor of that same restaurant, notifies the manager, but they take no reasonable steps to clean it up.
