I've Slipped And Fallen - What Should I Do Now?
First and foremost you should seek medical treatment, no matter if the injuries seem inconsequential. Even the smallest of fractures or trauma to various parts of the body can lead to serious results - so be sure to speak with a medical professional immediately. Once you've been thoroughly examined and any wounds have been attended to by the appropriate specialists, you may wish to speak with one of the Georgia personal injury attorneys at Grant Law Office. Their qualified personnel can help determine the best course of action and where to begin your potential suit.
Do not delay. The state of Georgia has a number of time limits associated with such personal injury lawsuits; failing to meet these deadlines can result in the negation of your claim. Additionally, property owners may alter the site in which you were injured to hide their impropriety.
Observe & Report
Once you've explored all medical options, received appropriate treatment and potentially spoken with a personal injury attorney, you'll want to gather up any potential evidence that could point to the at-fault party's negligence. This is the critical factor in any personal injury case - was the other party at fault and to what degree. A qualified slip and fall attorney can assist you with this investigation. Some of the key pieces you'll want to secure include:
- Photos and visual evidence of poorly maintained sidewalks, stairs, railings, escalators, walls, or any area of a locale that people regularly encounter throughout the day.
- Photos and visual evidence indicating the lack of signage warning of hazardous conditions and potential surface irregularities
- Any evidence pointing to clear building or city code violations
- Your own medical records, demonstrating the types of injuries you sustained as a result of the accident
The Fault Lines
In the case of slip and fall accidents, guilt usually falls upon owner or manager of the property in which the accident occurred. This could range from a real estate management company, private owner, commercial vendor, landlord or city municipality. This is known as premises liability. It is up to these individuals and entities to ensure the safety of those people properly using the location. Failure to do so can result in severe legal action.
Grant Law Office has become all too familiar with these half-hearted and delinquent individuals. We've built up a strong reputation of holding these folks accountable for their negligence and awarding those injured with appropriate compensation.
