Generally speaking, there are no laws that regulate how a hotel must protect a guest against bedbugs. However, the operator must still make a good faith effort to prevent them from infesting a guest's room. Ideally, a hotel in Georgia will implement a program to ensure that bedbugs don't have the ability to enter a building or spread from room to room. In addition to protecting an establishment from a lawsuit, this can help to preserve a hotel's brand as well.
You may be like many who enjoy the convenience of going cashless. Even small purchases of a dollar or two are easier with a debit card, and you can keep track of your purchases when you check your bank statement. However, there are times when you need cash. When the bank is closed, you may have to use an ATM to access your cash. Unfortunately, this may mean placing yourself in harm's way.
Retailers in Georgia and around the country tend to view slip-and-fall accidents and the lawsuits that they give rise to as an inevitable part of doing business, but a Pennsylvania-based supermarket chain has virtually eliminated slip-and-fall injuries at its 57 warehouse and convenience stores by making both employee and customer safety a top priority. Redner's Markets has achieved this by adopting a comprehensive strategy that includes frequently checking store floors for spills or other hazards, providing all workers with thorough safety training and placing adhesive-backed floor mats in high-risk areas.
Every year in Georgia and across the U.S., over 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs. This results in some $600 million in medical claims. Yet most dog bites can be prevented if people understand that dogs are liable to attack when they are sick, they get overexcited during play, they are startled or the safety of their owner, food, toy or territory appears to be threatened.
A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has found that the percentage of severe injuries incurred at trampoline parks and jump parks is higher than on home trampolines. Georgia residents should know that this includes both children and adults. The most frequent injuries were fractures, especially lower extremity fractures. Open fractures and fractures requiring surgery are more common in these parks.
Sports stadiums can be the site for many preventable accidents, which, in turn, may lead to premises liability claims. Georgia residents may want to know about one such case where a man was assaulted just outside of Dodger Stadium back in 2015. His complaint was filed in 2017, and now the Los Angeles Superior Court has scheduled the case for mediation in February 2020.
