Nuisance Liability

A municipality is liable for damages it causes to a third party from the creation or maintenance of a nuisance. The Supreme Court of Georgia in the landmark decision City of Bowman v. Gunnells, 243 Ga. 809 (1979) established the now well-settled principles of law for when a municipality may be held liable for maintaining a nuisance. The Georgia statutory definition of nuisance is anything that causes hurt, inconvenience, or damage to another, and examples of nuisances include road defects, street sign disrepair, overgrown vegetation and improper dumping. The specialists at The Eisenberg Firm know that victims need immediate assistance to abate nuisances and get their case before a jury who will decide financial compensation for damages incurred as a result of public nuisances.
