A specific rule in Georgia makes owners strictly liable for animal attacks that cause injury. For example, a dog owner is legally responsible for any bodily harm caused by a dog bite or attack regardless of the animals prior behavior. If the plaintiff proves the dog was not on a leash when it should have been, then the dog owner is fully liable for the resulting injuries.
Hazards conditions and poor maintenance can lead to accidental slips and falls. Victims of these accidents may be entitled to monetary compensation to cover medical costs from their injuries. Such claims do not necessarily need to involve slipping on a slick surface. Accidents can also involve tripping on an object that impedes the walking surface such as poorly maintained walk ways or loose floor boards.
Assault is any attempt to cause physical harm and battery is the actual physical injury. Victims of assault or battery could be eligible for compensation for medial costs, pain and suffering, and more. Criminal charges in assault and battery cases are separate from civil cases. Assault victims can bring additional lawsuits against the perpetrator regardless of the outcome of criminal trials.
