Woman files lawsuit over pumpkin carving injuries

Carving pumpkins for Halloween is a fall tradition for many Georgia families, but it must be done carefully as the implements used are extremely sharp. A Colorado woman learned this lesson the hard way in October 2018 when she suffered a serious hand injury while participating in a pumpkin carving competition. The woman claims in a lawsuit filed on Oct. 28 that her injury could have been prevented if the ski and snowboard club that organized the competition had taken adequate precautions.

Everyone wants a nice lawn, but not everyone will pay for it

When people work long days, the last thing they want to do when they get home is haul out the lawn mower and mow the grass. An apartment owner or manager spends many hours in the day dealing with tenants, repairs and maintenance and may not have the time to mow and prune around the property. That's where you come in. Your lawn care business provides a valuable service, especially to those other businesses that do not have the time to tend to the landscaping.

Overview of airport premises liability

Premises liability is the legal theory stating that property owners are responsible for any bodily injuries and property damage that lawful entrants incur. This theory holds even for the owners, operators and lessors of airports in Georgia, so they may want to make sure they have premises liability coverage. In many cases, they can add it via an insurance endorsement. Adding a separate general liability policy may set them back $750 to $2,000 for the premium alone.

Despite regulations, truckers could drive while drowsy

Truck drivers have an important and difficult job. You and many other drivers may often see them as a nuisance or fear the harm they could cause if a crash occurs, but truckers often have grueling, long shifts on the roads of Georgia and across the country. Unfortunately, these long shifts could contribute to prolonged periods of fatigue.

Measures for avoiding premises liability claims

Business owners in Georgia need to do all they can to avoid accidents on the property because if they involve a visitor or customer rather than an employee, accidents can lead to premises liability claims. Slip-and-fall accidents are behind many of these claims, so owners may want to start by addressing hazards like wet floors, torn carpeting, ice on the sidewalks and potholes in the parking lot.

How to minimize liability on Halloween

Those who wander onto another person's property on Halloween night in search of candy could slip, trip or otherwise hurt themselves. Homeowners in Georgia and throughout the country may be liable for paying damages to injured victims. However, there are steps that an individual can take to minimize the possibility that an accident occurs on his or her property. For instance, it can be a good idea to make sure that extension cords aren't in a visitor's path.
