Georgia law requires commercial and private property owners to maintain safe properties for people who are legally on the premises. Most properties are subject to safety codes or regulations requiring the property owner or manager to prevent negligent exposure to harmful or injurious situations. Premises liability claims may hold these property owners or managers liable when someone is injured due to hazardous, unsafe or dangerous conditions.

Cruise ships have a responsibility to prevent dangerous conditions on board that can cause a passenger to suffer serious injury. The cruise ship and its parent company can be liable when a cruise ship accident occurs because of poor maintenance, improperly trained employees, inadequate safety equipment or emergency precautions, or negligent security.
Cruise ship tickets often include a provision that requires claims to be filed within one year of the incident. Additionally, such suits may need to be filed in a specific state and county. Some cruise ships also require that any cases must be filed in federal court.
