Atlanta Airport Injury Lawyer

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, located 10 miles from downtown Atlanta, is one of the busiest airports in the world.  It comprises over 4700 acres, and serves over 150 domestic destinations and 75 International destinations in 50 countries.   The airport averages more than 250,000 passengers daily.  Due to the large volume of people and machines operating in close quarters, its inevitable that accidents occur, many of which are preventable.  Ponton Law has litigated a number of injury cases arising from injuries at the Atlanta airport, including:

  1. Pedestrian Injuries. Cars, trucks, taxi, limos, buses, and any other vehicle you can thing of all pass through the airport every day, while the many passengers who are exiting the airport are attempting to leave.  Injuries occur every day through the carelessness of vehicle operators.  Ponton Law seeks to hold those operators accountable.
  2. Escalator Injuries. 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.
