Examples of Slip & Fall Law in Georgia
Recreational Property Owners
This article aims to encourage property owners of recreational spaces to make their property available to the general public. Visitors of the property are essentially given more liability for their injury and the property owner is given less liability for the visitor’s injury. The idea is to limit liability for owners of recreational property (especially publicly-owned, tax-paid spaces such as sidewalks and highway rest stops) compared to commercial property owners.
Duty of Property Owners
Georgia § 51-3-1
This section of the chapter compels property owners who have invited (implied or direct) visitors to their property to be responsible for coverage of damages in the event the visitor is injured on the property. This encourages property owners to take care that their property is in safe condition. This generally applies to all invitees, including business visitors, social guests, and customers at a store. This code is partially why so many slip and fall cases have merit today.
