If you were seriously injured in an indoor slip and fall accident in Georgia, such as from a nasty fall on a wet floor in a store or at a mall, you may struggle with the resulting financial costs for your medical treatment. To recover compensation that can account for your medical expenses, lost time at work and pain and suffering, you may need to file a Georgia slip and fall claim.
Because you'll have to prove the property owner failed to maintain safe standards within the establishment, it's strongly recommended that you work with a Peachtree City slip and fall attorney who can help protect your rights and support your claim.
In short, you will have to successfully argue in your Georgia slip and fall claim that the property owner knew, or should have known, about the hazard (such as a wet floor, torn carpeting, uneven step, etc) and failed to warn you. Since it may be difficult to get a property owner to candidly admit a known hazard wasn't addressed, Georgia slip and fall claims tend to come down to whether the owner should have known about the indoor hazard.
In order to determine if the property owner is liable for your indoor slip and fall accident, your claim will have to address the following key questions:
- Were you authorized to be on the property?
- Was there a warning posted to identify the hazard?
- Did the owner have an inspection procedure in place that was rigorously followed?
- Did the owner fail to take action or manage conditions that were within the owner's control?
This can be difficult for you as the victim to investigate, much less prove without legal help. A Peachtree City slip and fall attorney can help with these specifics of your indoor slip and fall while you focus on recovery.
