According to Georgia law, homeowners and commercial entities have a duty to keep their property reasonably safe for any “invitee” that is on their premises. Premises liability involves situations in which someone has been injured or killed due to the property owner’s negligence or breach of legal duty to provide a safe environment. In many cases, these consist of unmarked hazards and preventable accidents that resulted in serious harm, injury or even death.
