How vicarious liability works

In some negligence cases in Georgia, the responsibility for an injury or accident may be laid not on an individual but on a party that was not directly involved in the incident. This is called vicarious liability. This concept is often used to ensure that victims are compensated by a financially stable and adequately insured party.

Liability Waivers May Not Hold Up in Court

Property owners in Georgia and other states often attempt to contract away negligence by using liability waivers. However, such waivers may or may not hold up in court--it all depends on the language contained in the waiver. For one thing, the scope of activities described in the waiver is critically important. Generally speaking, courts do not favor liability wavers and often rule against the party seeking to enforce them. However, when activities are specifically described in the waivers, courts will sometimes uphold them.

When bars and restaurants might be liable

Suffering a serious injury in an accident with a drunk driver in Georgia can leave you facing permanent disabilities and a reduced quality of life. If you subsequently learn that the driver was overserved at a restaurant or bar just before your accident, you may be infuriated that your accident and injuries could have been prevented.
