Premises Liability in Atlanta Shopping Centers

A trip to the shopping center should be an enjoyable experience, not one that leaves you injured and in pain, struggling to pay your medical bills or make up for lost time at work. However, accidents in shopping centers are more common than you might think, and they can have serious consequences. If you or a loved one has been injured in a shopping center due to the negligence of the property owner or manager, you may have a premises liability case. Going up against a major corporation like a shopping center might seem daunting, but it’s not something we haven’t done before and come out on top. Our aggressive legal team is here to fight for your rights and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Contact The Schermerhorn Firm today to discuss your claim with an experienced and successful Atlanta premises liability lawyer.

Common Causes of Shopping Center Injuries in Atlanta

Shopping center injuries can occur for various reasons, all of which can be grounds for a premises liability claim if the property owner or manager failed to maintain a safe environment. Common causes of injuries include:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents: Wet floors, uneven surfaces, or poorly maintained walkways can lead to serious falls.
  • Parking Lot Accidents: Poor lighting, lack of security, or uneven pavement can result in injuries or assaults.
  • Falling Objects: Improperly secured fixtures or holiday displays can fall and injure shoppers.
  • Elevator and Escalator Accidents: Malfunctioning equipment can cause falls or entrapment injuries.

Proving Negligence in Premises Liability Cases

To win a premises liability case, you must prove that the property owner or manager was negligent in maintaining a safe environment. This means showing that:

  1. The defendant owned, leased, or controlled the property.
  2. The defendant was negligent in the use or maintenance of the property. Either they created a danger, or they knew about or should have known about a hazard created by someone else, yet they failed to correct it in a reasonable time.
  3. You were injured as a result of this negligence.
  4. You suffered damages due to the injury.

Our experienced team at The Schermerhorn Firm is skilled in gathering evidence, such as surveillance footage, maintenance records, and witness statements, to build a strong case on your behalf.
