Each year, many Georgia residents are injured in accidents or assaults in parking lots. Business owners whose properties include parking lots or facilities have a duty of care to ensure they are reasonably safe.
If you were injured in an accident or assault in a parking lot, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the owner if it knew about the danger and did nothing to either correct it or to warn you and others. Examples of the duties owed by property owners or managers include having security personnel available in dangerous areas, removing debris or ice that has accumulated and fixing holes in the surface, among others.
Many different kinds of parking lot incidents can give rise to owner or manager liability. People may be able to sue when they have been mugged, assaulted, robbed or raped. They may also sue if they are attacked or injured because of poor lighting or if they trip, slip or fall because of broken pavement, potholes or accumulated ice.
