My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: GA
My neighbor has a completely dead tree- bark has fallen off in several areas in large patches. There is no doubt the tree is dead. A car turning the corner was hit by the tree- it was a windy day. Car is what I would consider totaled- driver received lacerations and had to have glass remover from her leg.
After the emergency response- the tree was cut in several very large pieces- most which was left on my yard to clear the road.
The caveat- the tree was less than ten feet from the road-and from my understanding -county maintained. I had a dead tree the same distance from the road a year back- called the county and they removed it.
Question- Is my neighbor liable?
