Who can be held liable in a Gainesville Slip & Fall case?

Homeowners, building owners, companies, and facility owners may all be held directly liable for any accidents that occur on their property due to negligence or a lack of proper maintenance, as well as a lack of posted notices.

Property owners and managers have a duty to ensure that their properties are safe and do not pose a risk of injury, disease, or death to visitors. Visitors are put at risk if a property is not well maintained or does not have a sign that clearly warns of any existing hazards.

In Georgia, also on private land, owners are required by law to keep the premises safe. This involves testing for unsafe conditions, notifying others, and/or correcting them. Even if the property owner was not aware of the unsafe situation, he could be held liable if it causes injury to a person.

Proving Premises Liability Negligence

The plaintiff must show that the property owner was negligent in maintaining the grounds or in warning of a dangerous situation and that this negligence caused his or her injury directly or indirectly.

The level of care required of a property owner depends on the type of visitor you are. If you have been invited as a guest, the owner has a responsibility to search the premises for any unsafe conditions and notify you so that you can avoid them. If the property is open to the public, the landowner is often required to take appropriate action to correct or warn of unsafe conditions. Trespassers are less likely to be protected by the law, although there are exceptions for children.
