Snow and Ice Related Accidents
The Dangers of Icy Conditions in Atlanta, GA
Over the winter months, cold weather can be expected throughout the state of Georgia. Generally the state experiences a few inches of snow a year and rainfall is not unexpected. When this snowfall or rain freezes; however, it can result in horrible icy conditions. Snow, sleet, slush, and freezing rain can all result in extremely dangerous conditions. If snow shows up unexpectedly, it can be even more tumultuous as metropolitan cities like Atlanta are not generally prepared for heavy snow.
Creating numerous possibilities for accidents and injuries, those residing in Atlanta should be cautious when walking or driving on snow and ice. In some cases, if a property owner or driver is negligent, injuries can occur that could have otherwise been prevented.
If you have been the victim of such damage, please contact The Kalka Law Groupwithout delay. We can investigate your case to determine if you have a case and work with you towards obtaining your rightful compensation.

Many of the kinds of accidents that can happen because of snow and ice are related to car collisions. Especially in areas where snow and ice is not as common, like in southern Georgia, people may not be aware of how to drive on icy roads. While some accidents are unavoidable, there are others that are simply due to negligent actions.
Ice-related car accidents that could be considered a result of negligence, include:
- Reckless driving

Icy Slip and Falls
Snow and ice are also to blame for many instances of slip and falls. It is the duty of a property owner or manager to keep their grounds free from obvious hazards. This includes clearing walkways of snow, doing what they can to get rid of ice or at least place warning signs up for customers, visitors or employees. If a property owner has not taken necessary precautions, they could be liable for injuries that take place on their land or in their building.
Devastating and life-altering injuries can occur from slipping on a step or walkway, including the following:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Damage to the hip region
- Permanent disfigurement
