Atlanta Parking Lot Slip & Fall Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents are responsible for almost 9 million emergency room visits each year, sometimes resulting in serious injury and significant medical complications. When these accidents occur due to the negligence of a person or a business, victims may be able to recover for their injuries by bringing a Georgia personal injury claim against the responsible party or parties. The kinds of negligence that can cause a slip and fall accident can sometimes be difficult to spot, so it is important for victims to have the circumstances of their falls reviewed by an experienced personal injury attorney.

One of the more common places that slip and fall accidents can occur is in commercial parking lots attached to stores and shopping centers. The owners of these premises are responsible for keeping these areas safe for those visiting their establishments, including keeping them free from ice and snow. Unfortunately, this does not always occur, sometimes resulting in disastrous consequences. 

Some of the more common ways that parking lot slip and fall accidents occur include the following:

  • The accumulation of snow
  • Ice
  • Shopping carts in walkways
  • Cracked pavement
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Lack of handrails on stairs
  • Improper traffic rules
  • Lack of crosswalks

A slip and fall accident in a parking lot can raise many complicated legal issues best handled by an experienced attorney. For example, a parking lot owner may claim that a plaintiff contributorily negligent in causing an accident and may try and deny liability as a result. An attorney can help you navigate these and any other defenses a defendant may try and raise. In addition, an attorney can help you in any negotiations with insurance companies that may arise and ensure that you receive the full value of your injury.
