By getting this information and gaining a better understanding of your legal rights and options, you can make a well informed decision about moving forward with a case.
What causes Slip and Fall Accidents?
An Atlanta slip and fall accident may be caused by virtually any hazardous condition on property grounds. Following are some examples:
• A wet floor
• A freshly waxed floor
• An object in an aisle or walkway
• A poorly lit walkway
• Uneven stairs
• Large cracks in the pavement
• Improperly placed floor mat or doormat
When a property owner is negligent in maintaining, inspecting or repairing property grounds, this may serve as the foundation of a premises liability claim. By proving that the property owner knew or reasonably should have known about the hazardous condition and did nothing to repair it or warn customers or visitors of its existence, a slip and fall injury victim may be able to recover financial compensation for a number of different damages: medical expenses, future medical costs, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and lost wages. The value of an Atlanta slip and fall accident claim will vary depending on the particular circumstances and extent of injury the victim sustained. By working with economists, medical professionals and psychologists, however, an attorney can establish the true worth of a claim of this nature in order to assist a victim in recovering full financial damages.
