Greater Atlanta Lawyers Assist People Hurt in Slip and Fall Accidents
Stone Mountain attorneys seek damages from negligent property owners
You have the right to expect safe conditions when you have reason to be on someone else’s property. If you’ve suffered a slip and fall injury caused by hazardous conditions on such premises, you might be entitled to collect monetary damages from the property owner. At Jason & Bradley, LLC, our skilled Stone Mountain slip and fall lawyers can assess your case to determine whether the property owner is legally liable for your injuries. With 30 years of combined experience, attorneys Dan Jason and Claire Bradley Jason can prepare a strong case on your behalf. We will assess the facts and explain whether you can collect damages such as medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering under Georgia law. Even if you bear some responsibility for the injury, you might be able to secure a financial recovery as long as you are judged to be less liable than the defendant.
common causes of injury that lead to slip and fall litigation
If an unsafe condition exists, you might be able to recover compensation if the hazard was not readily apparent and the property owner did not give adequate warning of the danger. Common causes of injury that lead to slip and fall litigation include:
- Bad weather — Rain or icy conditions can lead to slippery walkways and floors. Failure to address these hazards in a reasonable manner can trigger legal liability.
- Neglected property — Unsecured objects, toxic substances and other dangerous items may exist on properties that are no longer being cared for properly.
- Poor construction — Structural defects and other problems with construction or repair can unexpectedly cause serious injuries.
- Unsafe floors — In stores and other public places, spilled liquids, obstructions and damaged walkways present a serious risk.
In a free initial consultation, we will assess your potential claim and clearly outline your legal options.
Accomplished Georgia advocates handle premises liability cases
No matter what triggered your incident, our personal injury lawyers will advise you on the legal standards that apply to different types of plaintiffs, including:
- Invitees — These are people who are invited onto the property to conduct business, such as store customers. A property owner must exercise ordinary care to maintain safety on the premises.
- Licensee — When a fall victim is a social guest in another’s home, it can be more difficult to succeed in a premises liability action. These claims often require proof that the owner had knowledge of the dangerous condition.
- Trespasser — This is the most challenging area of premises liability. However, children are protected by the doctrine of attractive nuisance. If a trespassing child is tempted to enter a property because of a visible object, such as an abandoned vehicle, the owner might be liable for an injury that results.
When you have been injured on someone else’s property, we send a case manager to the site and to your hospital bed. Evidence collected at the scene of your injury is vital, but the information we learn from you is even more important.
