What Causes a Georgia Slip and Fall Accident?

By Grant Law Office on October 19, 2011

Slip and fall cases are defined as involving a victim who slips, falls, and suffers injuries due to a property owner or business operator’s negligence. These sorts of accidents can easily occur in any location, from big cities like Atlanta to smaller cities like Macon. Any place where there is a pedestrian danger that can result in a slip and fall incident. Just recently, a Texas woman sued Walgreen’s for $900,000 due to this kind of accident.

Property owners and business operators need to be aware of the elements that may cause slip and falls. Consumers also need to be aware of these factors to most importantly stay safe but also understand their legal rights. Some common triggers of slip and fall incidents include but are not limited to:

  • A floor that is wet or slippery: This can happen from any liquid or slippery substance. Pedestrians must be sufficiently informed and cautioned by signs, blockades, or verbal instruction regarding the dangerous area.
  • Uneven grounds or paths: This may cause a pedestrian to trip easily. It must be clearly marked as dangerous.
  • Hazardous stairs: These present perilous fall risk and must be cordoned off by those responsible and fixed in a timely manner.
  • Employment and work place injuries: Hazards on the job are routinely overlooked and cause employees injuries that should have been stopped by the employer legally responsible for providing a safe working environment.

But even with all those factors, it’s not simple to prove the fault of another party in a slip and fall case. It’s crucial to have proper legal representation to ensure your rights are guarded and remuneration is aggressively pursued.
