When to clear a roof of ice or snow

While Georgia may not see a lot of snow, it doesn't mean that a snowstorm can't occur in a given winter season. It is also possible for ice to accumulate and put stress on a roof. Therefore, it is worth knowing how much weight a roof can handle before it needs to be cleared off. Generally, a roof in good condition can handle up to 20 pounds per square foot. Roofs that are built in snowier climates may be built to withstand heavier loads.

How dog bite liability is determined

Georgia, like every state, has laws on dog bite liability. Dog owners may be held liable for any injuries that their pets cause. In addition, business owners, daycare providers, landlords and others who are responsible for the safety of a property can also be subjects of a lawsuit. The following is an outline of how most negligence laws work.

The factors in a slip and fall settlement

There are many factors that must be taken into consideration when settling a slip-and-fall case. For instance, it is important to consider whether a Georgia property owner was at fault for the incident occurring. This may be true if there was no sign warning an individual of a wet floor or if there was no rug to help keep the floors dry. Awards in this type of a case are classified as general and special damages.

Poor maintenance could result in escalator and elevator injuries

It's that time of year again. The holiday shopping season is just around the corner, and many Georgia residents still like to go to stores in order to do their shopping rather than doing it online. If you are one of them, then you may make your way to the mall at some point. These establishments are often filled with crowds of people looking for that perfect gift for someone they care about or love.

Las Vegas mass shooting case is not yet settled

The horrific events of October 1, 2017 stunned the country when a lone gunman fired into a crowd of outdoor concertgoers at the Route 91 festival. Many Georgia residents were among the more than 50 people killed, with hundreds more sustaining gunshot wounds or injuries from the panic that ensued. In trying to make sense out of a seemingly senseless event, many victims and their families looked to MGM Resorts International, the owner of Mandalay Bay where the concert took place and the perpetrator had a room from where the assault took place.

Trees can be as dangerous as they are beautiful

While you may not consider yourself a tree expert or arborist, you may still appreciate getting out and lying under the shade for some relaxing time or finding the best restaurant that provides outdoor seating shrouded in trees. Though the fall season has hit Georgia, temperatures often still allow for time outside.
