Georgia Slip & Fall Attorney

Your feet slide out from under you with a pun of air, and you fall hard on an unforgiving surface while you’re deep in contemplation. In the United States, these sorts of slips and falls constitute the primary cause of emergency department visits. Often, the injured person is responsible for the cost for the gap in attention that resulted in the injuries, although this is not always the case.

Slip and fall liability is determined by the location of the accident and whether someone’s negligence contributed to the dangerous conditions that caused the fall. If you have been hurt in a slip and fall accident and believe you may have a case, you should contact the Marc Brown Law Firm as soon as possible.

Types Of Slip And Fall Accident Injuries In Georgia

A slip and fall can cause a variety of injuries, ranging from minor to serious, depending on when, where, and how it occurs. An accidental fall might result in any of the following injuries, or a combination of two or more:

  • Soft-tissue injuries, such as muscular strains, torn ligaments, or sprained wrists
  • Head injuries, ranging from minor concussions to traumatic brain injuries that can result in lifelong impairment
  • Cuts, scratches, or chemical burns to the skin
  • Spinal cord injuries that can cause persistent discomfort, partial paralysis, or full paralysis
  • Bone fractures

How Georgia Slip And Fall Compensation Works

You will seek compensation from the responsible party’s insurance carrier if you are harmed in a slip and fall. If you were hurt in a slip and fall at a friend’s house, you might be hesitant to file a claim. You may believe that you are hesitant to file the claim because you do not want to sue your buddy, but this will not be the case. You’re seeking compensation from the insurance company for your lost earnings, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. This money does not originate with your buddy; rather, it originates with the insurance firm that represents them. The same may be said about establishments like supermarkets. Your damages are covered by their insurance. You will not be suing the property owner directly.

Georgia is a comparative fault state, which means you can be reimbursed for your losses even if you were partially to blame for the slip and fall. The following is how it works: Let’s assume you’re in the grocery store and you’re walking down the aisle while staring at your phone. There’s a pool of spilled liquid that hasn’t been cleaned yet, yet they stumble and are injured since they weren’t looking. The grocery shop would be liable for not cleaning up the spill or posting a warning notice, but that person would also be liable since they were not paying attention. In a situation like this, they may be held responsible for up to 20% of the accident. If they were awarded $10,000 in damages, they would only be able to recover $8,000 due to the fault. We take our responsibility to defend your claim to full compensation very seriously.

Dealing With The Insurance Companies

When you’ve slipped and fallen on somebody else’s property, never, ever, ever provide an insurance adjuster a recorded statement. You are not required to do so, and you are not obligated to do so. Make an appointment with a lawyer. Speak with us, and we’ll gladly advise you on what to do and how to go about doing it. Under no circumstances should you provide an insurance adjuster a recorded statement.
