Failure to provide elevators may violate public safety laws

Statute of limitations critical in wrongful death actions

People who have lost loved ones in Georgia due to the negligence of another should be aware that they have a limited time to file a wrongful death action. The time period in which a plaintiff may file a lawsuit is called the statute of limitations. This time period varies depending on the state in which the action is filed. In some jurisdictions, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death action may be as short as one year.

Wrongful death judgment still unpaid by O.J. Simpson

Georgia residents who have been following the trials and tribulations of O.J. Simpson may be interested to learn that he may be making money off of signing autographs. These allegations come in spite of the fact that he owes more than $70 million for a wrongful death judgment. An attorney for Fred Goldman, whose son was killed in 1994 along with Simpson's ex-wife, reportedly went back to Los Angeles Superior Court on Jan. 30 to ask the judge to order that Simpson hand over any future earnings.

Nightclub bankruptcy follows wrongful death lawsuit

When people go out on the town in Georgia, they expect venues to maintain security for patrons. This trust fell apart at an out-of-state nightclub called the Cameo when a shooting killed two people and injured another 15. The family of one of the deceased victims has claimed that the nightclub owner provided insufficient security and should pay damages. Their wrongful death lawsuit, however, might have nothing to make a claim upon because the business owner filed for bankruptcy at the end of 2017.

The takeaway from Home Depot murder case

Georgia residents may have heard about the 2012 murder of a pregnant Home Depot employee. While the company said that it shouldn't be liable in a civil lawsuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit ruled against a request to reconsider its prior ruling against the company. This means that it will be remanded to a lower court. The appellate court found that Home Depot was vicariously liable because it failed to discipline an employee who had a record of harassment against female employees.

Avoiding injuries while walking in icy conditions

Temperatures rarely drop below freezing in Georgia even during the coldest winter months, and residents of the Peach State are often unprepared on the rare occasions when snow does fall and ice forms. Even an inch or two of snow can cause Georgia highways to slow to a crawl, and a thin layer of ice can make walking on the state's sidewalks and driveways extremely treacherous.
