Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 4, 2009
Dozier Law Group, LLC (dozierlawgroup.com) has settled a premises liability personal injury case for $475,000 involving a fall at a national car wash company in Gwinnett County State Court. Dozier Law Group is an Atlanta law firm known for its Atlanta personal injury attorneys as well as its focus on business, commercial and employment law.
About the Personal Injury Case:
The plaintiff worked for a company that supplied products to the car wash industry. During a service call to one of the defendant's car wash locations in metro Atlanta, the plaintiff fell between fiberglass flooring grates in the car wash tunnel, cutting and injuring his leg. Due to the chemicals and contaminants in the runoff water, a horrible infection developed which resulted in numerous painful medical procedures and permanent disfigurement.
The plaintiff filed suit against the car wash company, asserting that it unreasonably failed to provide a safe environment by having gaps in the fiberglass flooring grates which were not detectable. As a result, the plaintiff could not appreciate the hazard, fell between the flooring grates, and was seriously injured as a result of a dangerous condition that could have been easily remedied at minimal expense.
Premises liability claims occur when a visitor is injured after encountering an unsafe condition on a property. Premises liability claims can involve, for example, a slippery substance on the floor, a concealed hole or gap in a flooring surface, a railing or step that unexpectedly gives way, improperly stacked or secured merchandise that falls from shelving, or other hazardous conditions. But these aren't the only problems that can lead to a premises liability claim. Others include:
- Failure to warn about an unsafe condition
- Inadequate security in a high-risk business or neighborhood
- Assaults, shootings or other violent attacks by employees or third parties
- Inadequate or no fire suppression equipment
- Insufficient crowd control measures
- Balcony collapses
- Inadequate lighting
- Improperly maintained store fixtures
- Improperly maintained escalators and elevators
- Allowing unrepaired or unsafe equipment to be used
