There are certain important factors that you should consider regarding how to handle your slip and fall accident and how to determine if taking legal action is in your best interest. If your injury was due to the negligence of another person or even a larger organization or company, it is essential to reach out to our knowledgeable attorneys so you can seek the compensation you deserve.
Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
Various factors can contribute to a slip and fall incident. A property owner may not have partitioned off a dangerous area in a building, or an architect or contractor may have designed a structure that is not safe. Often times, slip and fall incidents are caused by things that could have been cleaned up or removed easily (i.e., liquids, debris, etc.), but for whatever reason were simply ignored. Unfortunately, serious injuries often result, which is why it is critical to get our legal team involved to support you in making a claim for the compensation you deserve.
Our attorneys have helped people who have suffered all kinds of slip and fall accidents, including those resulting from:
- Floors and pavements that are uneven or cracked
- Broken tiles or concrete

Types of Injuries Related to Slip & Fall Accidents
There are tragically many kinds of injuries that cab result from slip and fall accidents, and many of our clients have suffered multiple injuries during a single event. This is why it is so essential to get legal support, since the bare minimum that insurance companies often offer will hardly cover all the costs related to treating these injuries, in the present as well as the future.
Some of the most common injuries resulting from these incidents include:
- Traumatic brain damage and memory loss
- Spinal cord damage and paralysis
- Broken and fractured bones
- Damaged or ruptured organs
- Severe bruises and internal bleeding
The Importance of Reaching Out to Skilled Attorneys
When it comes to personal injury claims, you never want to simply settle for any legal representative. There are many complex facets when it comes to these kinds of claims, and neither the party who committed the injuries nor your own insurance company will be on your side.
The opposing party, whether an individual or an organization, will often try to excuse their negligence or even blame you for causing the fall, since they do not want to pay repercussions. However, it is important to remember that insurance companies are not eager to offer much monetary support either. In order to secure yourself from being placed in a terrible legal and financial bind, it is critical to get in touch with our devoted slip and fall lawyers in Atlanta as soon as possible.
