Carrollton Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

The more common legal name for injuries resulting from a slip and fall (trip and fall) is premises liability. It is a specific niche within personal injury law, and you should consult with a law firm experienced in evaluating these claims. Georgia property owners, and even property managers, have the duty to exercise reasonable care to keep their property in a safe condition for people entering onto their premises.

For whatever reason, the most common story told involves a person slipping on a banana peel in a grocery store. Plaintiffs in slip and fall accidents have an extremely high burden of proof under Georgia law. In regular English (which means without all of the legal mumbo jumbo), a plaintiff must prove that the property owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition causing the injury. There is an exception if the danger is part of the property or the property owner created the hazard.
