Compensation After a Slip and Fall on Snow or Ice

When is someone else legally responsible for your injuries if you slip and fall on snow or ice in Georgia? Under Georgia's premises liability laws, pedestrians assume the risk of injury if they see ice or dangerous snow and choose to walk across it. However, property owners may be legally responsible for injuries caused by ice that cannot be seen or ice in places where pedestrians have reasonable expectations of safety.

Examples of situations in which premises liability law might state that a property owner is responsible for injuries caused by snow or ice include:

  • Glare ice on a sidewalk that cannot be seen
  • Ice in a dark parking lot or on an unlit sidewalk
  • Ice on pedestrian walkways or in passenger unloading zones

In such cases, property owners are required to either place warning signs or clear ice from the area.

Experienced Premises Liability Attorneys With Offices in Alpharetta - Roswell, Atlanta, Duluth, Dawsonville and Woodstock, Georgia

When it comes to ice and snow accidents, Georgia's premises liability law is far from clear. These types of personal injury claims are further complicated by the fact that ice and snow have a tendency to melt, resulting in loss of key evidence.

If you have been seriously hurt in a fall on snow or ice at a commercial property, consult an independent personal injury attorney before talking about a settlement with the company or the company's lawyers.

I am a former insurance defense lawyer, as well as a former insurance claim manager. This experience has allowed me to use my insight to help personal injury plaintiffs achieve fair compensation.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
