Amusement parks aren't always fun

As you begin to make your summer plans, you may think about visiting one or more of Georgia's amusement and theme parks. Spending a day or more at one could provide your whole family with lots of fun.

Don't let a hotel mishap ruin your vacation with your kids

Spring break, summer or any other time of the year that you get to travel, you could stay in one of Georgia's many hotels even if you live somewhere in the state. Whether you prefer room service with a chocolate on your pillow or a more family-oriented hotel with an indoor pool, there is something for everyone.

Ensuring swimming pool safety in three steps

Homeowners in Georgia preparing for some fun get-togethers around the swimming pool should know about their duty to keep others safe. Every year in the U.S., 3,536 people die in unintentional non-boating drowning accidents, according to the CDC. In the following three steps, homeowners can reduce the likelihood of drowning and other incidents on their property.

Man dies after accident at music festival

Coachella is a music event that many residents of Georgia have likely heard of. Prior to this year's event, the lead rigger for the event fell 60 feet while attempting to climb scaffolding. It is believed that the man was not properly attached to a harness that could have prevented the fall, and investigators said that he died at the scene of the accident.

The importance of liability insurance

It isn't unusual for someone who rents or leases a space in Georgia to obtain insurance. This can be a good thing in situations involving landlords who shift liability to their tenants regardless of who was actually at fault for an accident. Of course, in most situations involving an accident or other incident caused by a tenant, it is not unreasonable to expect the tenant to accept responsibility.

For immediate release: Major settlement reached

Melvin L.

Protecting a business from premises liability claims

In Georgia, business owners are responsible for the safety of any person who lawfully enters their premises, even when they do not own that property themselves. Even trespassers, usually children, may have the right to a safe environment under the doctrine of "attractive nuisance." Business owners must then ensure that the proper policies and procedures are in place for recognizing dangerous conditions and doing something about them.
