You must be alert and observant of your surroundings. If a person knew about the danger before becoming injured, the property owner may not be held negligent. For example, if a store employee is mopping the floor and displays appropriate warning signs that a store guest ignores, the store likely will not be held responsible for an injury if that customer slips and falls.
In Georgia, the motivations of the injured party on the property are examined. An invited guest to the property must prove that the property owner failed to exercise reasonable care in maintaining the property. An injured party who was not expressly invited, but allowed onto the property, must prove that they were willfully and wantonly injured. A trespasser faces proving this burden as well.
