Gas station owner had superior knowledge of tripping hazard of non-retractable gas hoses
The Georgia Court of Appeals recently upheld a trial court decision to deny summary judgment in a premises liability case where a customer tripped over gasoline hoses at a convenience store gas station. The defendant had superior knowledge that the length of the non-retractable hoses attached to its gasoline pumps could create a tripping hazard to its customers.
