I've Slipped and Fallen - What Should I Do Now?

First and foremost, you should seek medical treatment, even if the injuries seem inconsequential. 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 doctor, you will want to speak with a Georgia personal injury attorney from Grant Law Office. Our qualified legal team can help determine your best course of action in filing a claim. Do not delay. The state of Georgia has a statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits, and failing to meet these deadlines can result in the negation of your claim. Additionally, property owners may alter the site on which you were injured to hide their culpability.

Observe and Report

Once you've received the appropriate medical treatment and 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 - proving whether the other party is 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 signs 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.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get?

Depending on the injury and its severity, you may have to spend time in the hospital and possibly have surgery. Slip-and-falls may seem like minor accidents, but they often result in chronic back injuries, broken bones, and concussions. These injuries can result in extensive hospitalization, multiple surgeries, permanent disabilities, and future cognitive issues. In a slip-and-fall personal injury claim, you may be entitled to compensation for any of the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent injury or disability
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Lost wages
  • Hedonic damages for loss of joy of life
  • And much more

Where Fault Lies

In slip-and-fall accidents, guilt usually falls upon the owner or manager of the property on which the accident occurred. This could include a real estate management company, a private owner, commercial vendor, landlord, city, or municipality. It is up to these individuals and entities to ensure the safety of people using the location. Failure to do so can result in severe legal action.

Grant Law Office has become all too familiar with the negligent behavior of many of these parties and the devastating impact it can have on innocent families. We've built up a strong reputation of holding these folks accountable for their negligence and getting appropriate compensation for those injured.

If you or a family member has sustained injuries from a slip-and-fall accident that could have been prevented, give our Atlanta personal injury lawyers a call today. Grant Law Office can help you weigh your options and plan the best course of action for your claim. Call (404) 995-3955 for a free consultation.
