According to the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), there are approximately 10,000 escalator injuries per year which result in emergency room treatment in the United States.  Owners and operators of escalators have a duty to keep the escalators in a state of good repair, and can be held liable for injures for their failure to do so.  Ponton Law will hire an escalator expert to examine the escalator for any deficiencies in the maintenance program which may have caused or contributed to the injury.
  3. Jetway Injuries.  As a general rule, property and business owners in Georgia have a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition for the patrons or guests who are invited to come onto the property.  This duty includes the responsibility to clean up spills, remove tripping hazards, inspect for dangerous conditions and warn of any danger that cannot be immediately eliminated.  At Hartsfield, many times the individual airlines (e.g., Delta, Southwest, etc.) lease the jetways from the airport authority, and are responsible for any damages that result.  Ponton Law works to ensure that timely video surveillance is preserved.
