Will the advent of self-driving cars lead to fewer car accidents?

Self-driving cars may seem like something out of a science fiction novel, but several companies are testing prototypes of these types of vehicles. In fact, it is estimated in some reports that by 2020 there will be 10 million self-driving cars on roads across the nation. However, people in Georgia and elsewhere may wonder if such vehicles are truly safe and whether they will prevent car accidents from occurring.

Business owners must take care to prevent slip-and-fall accidents

When a Georgia resident goes into a store, a hotel, a restaurant or any other type of business, they certainly do not anticipate that they could be injured on the premises. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. For example, slip-and-fall accidents could occur, leading to significant injuries that could change a person's life forever. Unfortunately, many slip-and-fall accidents could have been prevented if the property owner exercised due care.

How does a person's status affect a premises liability claim?

When a person in Georgia is at a store, at a friend's house or is even trespassing, they generally expect that the property will be safe. However, safety is no guarantee, and sometimes a dangerous condition on the property causes a person to suffer harm. The liability of the property owner in such situations will depend on the status of the injured party.

When could a dog owner be responsible for dog bite injuries?

Dogs may be "man's best friend," but in the end, they are animals who are capable of biting people in Georgia and elsewhere. Dog bite injuries can be very painful and can cause scars and disfigurement. Therefore, it is important to have a general understanding what a dog owner's responsibilities are when it comes to dog bites.
