When you enter a business or lawfully step onto another person’s property, you should expect the basic care to keep you safe from serious harm. Unfortunately, that basic duty is not always met.

Slip & fall claims fall under the umbrella of premises liability. In other words, when you are visiting someone’s property, the owner of that property is responsible for your well-being. If property owners fail to take the necessary precautions to safeguard your well-being, injury could be just around the corner.  If you slip and fall, the result could be head trauma, bone fractures or breaks, or spinal injuries depending on the nature of the accident.

Have you suffered a slip & fall injury while on someone else’s property?, If so, an Atlanta slip-and-fall law firm like The Law Offices of Robert A. Rivers can help you win the settlement you deserve to get your life back on track.

Premises Liability and Georgia Law

Taking your case to court is one thing. Receiving your settlement, though, is not quite so simple. Prior to filing your Atlanta slip-and-fall claim, peruse the Georgia state laws that apply to your situation. Georgia law can be complicated. If you’ve not studied the statutes that pertain your claim, you could end up with nothing more than your hands in your pockets.

Statute of Limitations

To begin with, if your slip-and-fall accident occurred prior to the last two years, it is unlikely that you will receive compensation. It is important to your case to retain an attorney as soon as possible, before pertinent evidence has a chance to disappear.

Negligence Laws

Keep in mind that just because you are within the statute of limitations doesn’t mean that your case will be heard. Negligence laws are also a key element. If your case and corresponding evidence are less than rock-solid, your case could be thrown out. Contact the Law Offices of Robert A.
