Premesis liability and sidewalk accidents

Snow and ice are rarely a concern for Georgia residents, but that does not mean that they should be unconcerned about slip-and-fall accidents that occur on sidewalks adjacent to their property. Many people assume that local authorities are responsible for maintaining and repairing sidewalks, but property owners also have their part to play. While homeowner's insurance policies usually cover sidewalk accidents, the amount of coverage they provide may not always be sufficient.

Slip-and-fall complaints may rise after blizzard

With record-breaking snowfalls this winter in areas that do not typically see a great deal of snow or ice, such as many parts of Georgia, some law firms are already reporting a spike in claims arising from slip-and-fall injuries caused by improper sidewalk and street maintenance. These premises liability claims often stem from the notion that property owners have a duty of care to prevent injury to others on and around their property.
