Slip and falls are one of the most common types of injuries which result in lawsuits against property owners. Falls are a leading cause of spinal cord damage and a leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) so fall injuries need to be taken very seriously. Falls can happen for lots of different reasons, from debris in a walkway to poorly maintained flooring materials to slippery floors. Whatever the cause of the fall, the property owner could be held accountable if it can be traced back to the owner’s negligence or failure to fulfill a safety duty.
It is up to the fall victim or family members of someone killed in a slip and fall to be able to put together evidence and prepare a case for compensation. An Atlanta slip and fall accident lawyer can provide invaluable assistance investigating the reasons why the fall happened and providing proof of liability which is necessary for a victim to recover compensation for damages.
