Premises liability is a legal concept that comes into play in personal injury claims. It involves an injury caused by a defective or unsafe condition on a property owned by a person or entity other than the injured party. Premises liability claims are based on negligence. To recover compensation, the injured person must show that the property owner was negligent – failed to use reasonable care concerning the property. Consult with a Gwinnett County premises liability attorney who can help you determine if a property owner acted negligently.

Under the Georgia Code, Section 51-3-1, property owners have a legal responsibility to exercise ordinary care to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors who are approaching, exiting, or present on the property.
