Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries
Slipping or falling can result in serious injuries, including head injuries, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, and other injuries. You may require medical treatment and rehabilitation and lose time from work. When the accident was caused by the property owner’s negligence, we can help you pursue a premises liability claim to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.
Establishing Liability in Slip & Fall Cases
When a fall is caused by wet floors, uneven flooring, broken stairs, poor lighting, or another dangerous condition, the injured person can pursue compensation for the damages that result from the accident. However, the law requires that the property owner caused the hazard, was aware, or should have known, about the dangerous condition.
Property owners can be held liable for injuries when they:
- Caused the dangerous condition
- Knew about the hazard or should have known
- Failed to correct the problem
- Should have foreseen that their negligent would create a dangerous condition
If you were injured due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability claim. After your injuries are treated, you should contact an attorney to learn about your legal rights and have your case evaluated. In Georgia, you must file a personal injury claim within two years of the date of the accident, so don’t wait too long to seek legal advice.
