In Georgia, an owner or occupier of land or a building has a legal duty to keep the premises and approaches of the property safe. When injury results from a neglect of that duty, a claim for damages is recognized.

When an accident or injury occurs to a visitor or tenant living on another person's property, owners of the property may be liable (legally responsible) if it can be proved that their negligence led to the injury. If you've suffered an injury of this type which you believe may be a result the negligence of another person, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover the costs involved to pay for your medical bills, any lost earnings or other pain, disfigurement, emotional distress or permanent physical disability you have suffered.
