Alpharetta Slip and Fall Attorneys
Helping people injured in slip and fall accidents recover
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common ways that people sustain accidental injuries. The injuries that you can sustain in a slip and fall accident can range from minor bumps or scrapes to more serious issues such as a traumatic brain injury.
Often, people slip or fall down due to their own clumsiness or lack of coordination. Other times, however, a slip and fall accident is caused by the negligent act or omission of another person.
When this occurs, victims may be able to recover for their injuries by filing a Georgia personal injury claim. The most effective way to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve after an Alpharetta slip and fall accident is to consult with one of the experienced attorneys of Boling Rice, LLC.
Understanding slip and fall accidents
Under general principles of premises liability law, property owners or occupants owe their visitors and guests a duty to make sure that their property is reasonably safe. There are an almost limitless number of hazardous conditions that could potentially cause an accident. Some of the most common include:
• Wet floors
• Uneven flooring
• Freshly waxed floors
• Cracked pavement
• Exposed electrical wiring
• Debris on floor
• Lack of handrails in stairwells
• Accumulation of snow or ice
• Inadequate lighting
• Objects in walkways
There are many other ways that a property owner could negligently cause a slip and fall accident, and an experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to determine whether you have a claim. After a slip and fall accident, it is important that victims undergo a thorough medical evaluation.
Seeing a physician will ensure both that your injuries are properly diagnosed and documented. Finally, contact an attorney as soon as possible.
Personal injury claims are subject to a strict statute of limitations, meaning that there is a limited amount of time in which you can bring a claim. As a result, any delay may jeopardize you ability to recover.
