Your Best Slip and Fall Lawyers

Slip and fall cases are frequently related to neglected spills, unsecured electrical cords, protruding store fixtures, defective lighting, uneven pavement, irregular floorboards, torn carpet, broken steps, and other unmarked hazards. According to Georgia premises liability laws, business owners, government agencies, and homeowners are responsible for maintaining a basic level of safety for customers, visitors, and in some cases, even trespassers. If a property owner knew or should have known about dangerous conditions on their property, Georgia laws may hold that person directly liable for any accidents or injuries that occur. 

If you fell down and got hurt at a business, grocery store, or restaurant, or if you tripped and fell on someone else’s property and sustained serious injuries, you need to speak with a lawyer. Schedule a free phone consultation with Cobb Personal Injury. Our slip and fall attorneys have the knowledge and experience to evaluate the strength of your case and help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.

How much is my slip-and-fall case worth?

When it comes to personal injury law, the value of every client’s case depends on the nature and severity of the individual injuries and damages. Not everyone who is injured in a slip and fall accident has the right to compensation. Sometimes, accidents can occur without anyone being at fault. But in many situations, trips, slips, and falls are directly related to another party’s negligence or failure to act. Our slip and fall lawyers have extensive experience negotiating successful slip and fall and trip and fall cases throughout Georgia and the greater Atlanta area. Contact us for a free case evaluation to learn more about getting the most from your insurance claim.

It’s important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to learn more about your case and your legal rights.

What to do After a Slip and Fall Accident

Get Help

After a slip and fall accident, your health and safety should be your main priority. Alert a manager or property owner and advise them to call 911 if you need medical attention.  

Collect Evidence

If you’re able, take photographs of the location and the hazard that caused your fall. Make notes or create a video so you can briefly document what happened while the details are still fresh. Collect contact information from anyone who witnessed the accident. Eyewitnesses may be called to testify or provide additional information. 

Seek Medical Care

It’s important to seek a medical evaluation after a fall to reduce the risk of long-term disability, chronic pain, or even death. Some injuries associated with trip and fall accidents may not be immediately apparent. Adrenaline can mask neck and back injuries, concussion symptoms, nerve damage, muscle strains, and even bone fractures. After a fall, watch out for headaches, dizziness, severe pain, or pain that worsens or doesn’t improve after 5 to 7 days. 

Document Everything

Keep track of medical records, treatment plans, receipts, and travel expenses. Good record-keeping can help our slip and fall lawyers build a strong case and get you the compensation you deserve. Cobb Personal Injury attorneys can help you recover damages for economic losses like medical bills and lost wages, as well as non-economic losses, such as physical and emotional pain and suffering. 

Georgia Slip and Fall Laws and Statute of Limitations

Slip and fall accidents fall under premises liability law. In Georgia, property owners or occupants are required to reduce or eliminate any particularly hazardous risks created by any temporary or permanent conditions on-site. In some cases, this may mean repaving a pothole in the sidewalk. In other instances, posted warning signs or bright fluorescent markings may be enough to demonstrate ordinary care was taken to reduce the risk of injuries.

When negligence can be proven, the statute of limitations for slip and fall accidents in Georgia is 2 years from the date of the injury. However, it’s important to call a personal injury attorney as soon as possible so your legal team can preserve as much evidence as possible and begin the process of investigating, filing, and negotiating your insurance claim.

How to Win Slip and Fall Case

There is a common perception that slip and fall cases involve people seeking to make a quick buck from minor injuries. This false belief can make premises liability cases difficult to win. Insurance companies often go to great lengths to avoid paying expensive settlements. They may attempt to bully or intimidate you into accepting an unfair offer. We help level the playing field, fighting for the monetary compensation you need to cover medical costs, lost wages, and other damages. 

It must be proven that the liable party acted negligently by failing to warn visitors about known hazards or by neglecting to repair dangerous conditions on the property. Solid documentation and strong evidence are required to prove the accident occurred due to no fault of your own. Thankfully, today many slip and fall cases occur in buildings and places that have significant video surveillance coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

A personal injury “claim” is a demand for payment of damages made by a person who has suffered an injury against a person who has the obligation to pay. Usually, a personal injury claim is made against the insurance company of the person who caused the injury.

In personal injury claims and lawsuits, the term “pain and suffering” comprehends actual pain but also mental anguish and other physical or emotional affects of the injury sustained. It includes the loss of enjoyment or pleasure in life and the loss of health and vigor as well as the loss of the ability to work and earn income. All these cause physical, emotional, mental, and psychological pain and suffering.

A personal injury claim from an insurance company may take longer because the documents you filed to support the claim are insufficient. The insurance company may also be doing its own investigation as it intends to contest your claim, or, it may be that they are only delaying the settlement of your claim beyond the 40-day period they are allowed under the law, or, as in a pandemic, they may not have sufficient manpower.
