What Are the Accident Laws on Restaurant Premises?
Restaurant injuries will be a premises liability case if the injury was caused by unsafe conditions. Recall that Georgia Code § 51-3-1 establishes that the owner of property who, by express or implied invitation, induces others to enter their premises for any lawful purpose (e.g., as restaurant guests), is liable in damages to such persons for injuries caused by their failure to exercise ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe.
Some examples of unsafe premises that may be grounds for a lawsuit are:
- broken handrails;
- uneven stairs;
- falling objects from the ceiling;
- bad or unsafe lighting;
- improper allergy alerts;
- dysfunctional elevators and escalators;
- slippery floors;
- broken chairs;
- dangerous use of fire.
If the restaurant injury involved an assault or shooting, a victim could sue the restaurant for negligent security for failing to provide sufficient security to prevent such attack.
How Do I Claim Damages?
As with all premises liability cases, the injured plaintiff must prove the following in order to build a case for damages:
- There existed a dangerous condition on the property (e.g., a slippery floor or dim lighting that made it hard to see).
- The property owner knew or should have reasonably known of the dangerous condition upon proper inspection.
- Despite that knowledge, the property owner did not remedy the dangerous premises, thus breaching their duty of care to their restaurant guests.
- The dangerous condition of the restaurant directly caused the plaintiff’s injuries.
If a plaintiff is able to show all the above elements, they may be granted a damage award to compensate for their injuries.
The damage award can include monetary and non-monetary damages, such as:
- present and future medical bills;
- lost wages from taking time off work to recover;
- pain and suffering.

The statute of limitations for premises liability claims like restaurant injuries is 2 years from the date of the accident. If the injury was so serious as to cause death, the deceased person’s loved ones may instead choose to pursue a wrongful death claim, which has a statute of limitations of 2 years from the date of their death.
Restaurant workers who have been injured on the job due to unsafe premises (e.g., faulty tools, malfunctioning elevators) may file a workers’ compensation claim with the government to obtain damages. These claims must be filed within 1 year of the accident.
