Atlanta Slip & Fall Accident Attorney
Who is liable in a slip & fall accident?
If you have been seriously injured in a private residence, public, government
or commercial property due to the negligence of a property owner, you
may be entitled to compensation. It is the
responsibility of a property owner and / or manager to maintain an adequate standard of care in the event
that a visitor will be entering the premises, so when potentially hazardous
conditions are ignored—including spills left on the floor, slick
or oily surfaces, uneven pavement, etc.—they may be held accountable
for their negligent actions through the concept of premises liability.
How Can You Receive Compensation?
In order to make a valid case against the responsible party, you must be
able to show that:
- The owner or property manager was aware of the hazardous condition and
failed to remedy the problem in a timely manner
- The owner or property manager should have known of the danger—in
the case that any other reasonable person in the same position would have
recognized and remedied the problem
If you have reasonable evidence to prove that either of these factors lead
to the accident that has caused you harm, you should not hesitate to take
legal action. In the aftermath of a slip and fall accident, it is important
to act quickly by retaining the assistance of an experienced
Atlanta premises liability attorney as soon as possible after an injury was sustained.
