It depends. There are many different situations that would place different parties liable for your Georgia brain injury. For example, a city or property owner might be responsible for your injuries in any of the below events:
- City or property owner failed to inspect trees regularly and remove trees that posed a risk of falling
- City or property owners were aware of a diseased or dead tree on their property but failed to do anything about it
- City or property owners should have known that a tree was dangerous and likely to fall
Property owners—both public and private—have a duty of care to maintain their premises, including trees. If they fail to identify and remove diseased or dangerous trees, they can be financially liable if someone suffers an injury as a result of a falling tree. In fact, several cities and homeowners have been held liable for damages caused by falling trees. Recently, the City of Savannah was held liable for a woman who suffered a Georgia brain injury and other serious injuries as a result of a falling tree limb.
