Settling, erosion and other factors can take their toll on concrete walkways and sidewalks. It is common to have one slab sink lower or buckle up over the adjacent slab, creating an uneven walkway. When you have an unlevel walkway, you could be at risk for a premises liability lawsuit.
Premises liability laws in Georgia are designed to protect those who are injured due to a property owner’s negligence. As a homeowner in Georgia, you have the responsibility to maintain your property to make it safe for those who visit your home. Accidents happen, but if they occur on your property due to an unsafe condition, you may be liable for any injuries. This can include medical bills, lost wages and other expenses to the victim.
An uneven sidewalk is a hazard that can cause serious injury. Whether or not someone is invited onto your property, if they trip on an uneven concrete slab and break an arm or sustain a head injury, you could be liable. The cost of repairing your sidewalk is much less than a lawsuit that could cost you tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
