Representing Injury Victims in Georgia Since 1995
Helping Georgians When They Need It Most
Did you know that property owners owe a duty of care to guests who are on their property? Many people do not realize this duty of care exists, so when they slip, trip or fall and suffer an injury, they do not understand that the property owner may be liable for their damages. This is especially important to know because a slip and fall could result in serious injuries that require expensive medical treatments and rehabilitation. This is why it is important to seek out a Georgia slip and fall attorney after any such injury.
At Craig Injury Law, we understand your rights and what you are owed after suffering injuries from a fall of any type. We have over 30 years of experience helping injured Georgians recover the compensation they are fairly owed. That means we can help when property owners are denying responsibility for your injuries, or when insurance companies say you are not as injured as you actually are.
Slip and fall injuries in Georgia may qualify for compensation if the injured individual can prove that the property owner was negligent or careless in their duty of care. This could include failure to maintain and inspect a property, failure to repair any dangerous conditions, or failure to warn guests of potential hazards.
In addition, if the property owner was aware of any dangers but failed to take reasonable steps to protect visitors from them, they may be held liable for an injury that results. For instance, if a wet floor sign was not posted after mopping the floor and someone slips and falls as a result, then the owner could be responsible for paying out damages. As such, it is important to contact a knowledgeable slip and fall attorney who can help assess your case and determine whether you are eligible for compensation.
Slip and fall incidents are a prevalent source of injuries. However, determining if you are entitled to compensation after experiencing such an injury can be challenging. Familiarizing yourself with the causes of these accidents can help you prevent injuries. In the unfortunate event that you do encounter one of these causes, being aware of potential negligence will enable you to pursue fair compensation, ensuring your protection from harm.
Here are some of the most common causes of slips, trips, and falls:
- Uneven or damaged floor surfaces: Floors that are uneven or have cracks can easily cause individuals to trip or slip.
- Wet or slippery floors: Conditions such as spills that haven't been promptly cleaned, water from dripping clothes, or wet shoes from outside precipitation can result in slippery surfaces.
- Inadequate lighting: Insufficient visibility makes it challenging for people to identify hazards like stairs or changes in elevation, increasing the risk of falls.
- Cluttered areas: Hallways and walkways cluttered with objects left on the ground heighten the chances of tripping over them.
- Loose rugs or mats: Rugs with frayed edges pose a significant hazard, as they do not provide stable footing, making it unsafe to walk over them.
- Accumulation of ice and snow during colder months: The presence of ice and snow creates hazardous surface conditions, both outdoors and indoors. If not promptly removed, melted ice can lead to slips and trips in buildings.
By being aware of these common causes, you can take proactive measures to minimize the risk of slip and fall accidents. If you find yourself injured due to negligence in any of these areas, you will be better equipped to seek the fair compensation you deserve, ensuring your well-being and safety.
