Slip & Fall Lawyers in Atlanta
Helping Injured Clients throughout Tucker
In cases seeking compensation for an injury suffered through a slip and fall, Atlanta law firm Buddoo and Associates, P.C. recommends that an injured individual seeks medical attention and consults with a slip and fall injury lawyer as soon as possible. Under premises liability law, if an injury occurs due to an accident that was the result of negligence or carelessness on the part of the property owner, then the injured individual may seek compensation and damages. Consulting with an Atlanta slip and fall attorney can help you get honest answers to your questions.
Proving Negligence & Property Owner Liability
According to Georgia premises liability statutes, property owners owe patrons and visitors a “duty of care” while on their premises. The property owner is bound to ensure that individuals on his/her property are not exposed to any risk of harm, especially if that risk of harm can be reasonably avoided.
Slip and fall accidents may be the result of negligence on the part of the property owner or the staff. Property owner liability can be shown if the property owner is aware that a hazardous condition exists on their property which could cause injury, and they do not take steps to protect the public.
Negligence may be shown in cases of:
- Failure to remove a hazard, such as a spill or slippery condition
- Failure to repair uneven pavement on sidewalks or in parking lots
- Failure to provide adequate lighting in dimly lit areas
- Failure to provide proper safety equipment, such as handrails
- Failure to properly maintain equipment
Slip & Fall Lawsuits for Workplace Injuries
Slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of workplace injuries. The severity of these injuries determine when or if an individual will be able to return to work. Workers’ compensation may cover lost wages and perhaps medical expenses, but a serious injury will also involve pain and suffering.
If the fall that caused this injury was due to non-adherence to safety measures or being forced to work in unsafe conditions, you may be able to seek additional compensation for your injuries with the help of a slip and fall law firm.
Slip and Fall Injuries in Apartment & Condos
One common area that slip and fall accidents occur is at apartment and condo buildings. These accidents are generally the cause of unattended items, dark hallways, uneven flooring, and other issues.
Situations with an apartment are often, however, quite complicated because of contracts regarding issues within the premises. If the trip or slip and fall occurred in the common areas, however, you may be entitled to compensation. An attorney can help you build a claim if it is reasonable to do so. Make sure you speak with a legal representative as soon as possible.
Slip & Fall Accidents Account for Most Injuries
Injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents can vary from minor to very serious, from cuts and scrapes to head trauma and brain injuries which are sometimes fatal. In a study done by Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control, injuries from unintentional falls resulted in a higher number of emergency room visits than other injury causes. These statistics are consistent across all age groups.
