Coleman Talley partner C. Hansell Watt, IV, defending the landowner in a slip-and-fall case, was recently successful in convincing the Georgia Court of Appeals to reverse the trial court and grant summary judgment in favor of the landowner. The case created significant precedent in Georgia’s body of premises liability and assumption of the risk case law. Specifically, the opinion of the Court of Appeals provides clarification to the “coercion” exception to the assumption of the risk defense. The case is Naval Store Suppliers, Inc. v. Croft, 2018 Ga. App. LEXIS 264 (2018).
