When Georgia shoppers are injured at a big box store, they may not be sure what they need to do in order to seek compensation for their medical bills and other damages.

Did you suffer injuries as the result of a slip and fall? It is possible that this was an accident, but there is a chance that factors beyond your control contributed to what happened to you. Many slip-and-fall incidents are the result of negligent maintenance and safety hazards, yet many victims assume that their injuries are the result of their own clumsiness or inattentiveness.
Bar, nightclub and concert venue owners in Georgia and around the country are expected to do all that they reasonably can to ensure the safety of their patrons, and they are usually held responsible when preventable accidents occur. However, there are exceptions to this general rule. Premises liability lawsuits may not be successful in circumstances where the plaintiffs failed to take reasonable steps to protect themselves from injury.
If you work in a busy Georgia city, or venture to town on occasion to take in a show or visit your favorite restaurant with friends, you may be familiar with various parking lots provided in the area. Some lots are small and quite challenging to navigate, especially if you drive a large vehicle; others stretch a quarter mile or more. Although a convenient place to leave your car while enjoying a night on the town, it can be a little unnerving getting in and out of a parking lot, especially if you're traveling alone.
Some Georgians can be severely injured or killed when they strike guardrails, especially when they hit the end portion of the rails.
