Store Liability for Customer Injury: Medical Bill Responsibility?
No, not so fast. Georgia law does not impose automatic liability on a store or other premises owner just because you were hurt on their property. Premises liability depends on the degree of care the owner used to make the premises safe for those who enter the store or other premises. The reason you are in the store factors into the law as well.
For example, someone who is there to buy something (an invitee) is owed a greater standard of care than someone who entered the premises to steal or graffiti the store (trespasser).
