What is Premises Liability?
If you’re injured on somebody else’s property when the owner neglected to keep the property safe and they owe you a duty of care, you might be able to bring forth an injury claim.
In order to submit your premises liability claim, you have to fill out a form and send it to the right insurance company. The best way to do this is by filling out the form with all of your expenses related to your injury.

What Is The Duty of Care of a Property Owner?
For property owners, Georgia law says that the owner is legally responsible for keeping their premises safe. This means not only having a safe building, but also areas around it like sidewalks, ramps, walkways and parking lots.
If you were hurt on someone else’s property, it doesn’t automatically mean that the owner was at fault. Generally, you’ll have to show that the owner either knew or should have known about the hazard in advance of your accident. If the owner had knowledge of the danger and failed to protect you from it, they may be found negligent in a premises liability suit.
