Slipping and falling in your local Publix or tripping over loose flooring at the Augusta Mall can bruise a lot more than your pride. Falling on hard flooring can cause fractured wrists or tailbones, deep bruising, or even a concussion. If you were involved in a slip- or trip-and-fall accident and got hurt, you could have grounds to pursue compensation from the property owner or business manager where you fell. But, there could be difficulties taking on a large corporation or prominent business owner. A savvy Augusta, GA, slip and fall lawyer from Ted A. Greve & Associates can help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Slip And Fall Accidents Can Cause Life-Changing Injuries
If you slip on a slick floor or icy sidewalk, or trip over a piece of rug that’s curled up, you rightly feel embarrassed, but you could hurt more than your pride. The impact of your full body weight when you land causes serious damage. When we slip or trip, we automatically put out our hands to break the fall, but the impact could fracture one or both wrists or cause a painful strain or sprain. Can you imagine how you would work if one or both hands were damaged?
The medical costs for treating slip and fall accident injuries can quickly add up, and if you’re out of work until you help, you may be wondering where you will get the money for your medical care and bills. Fortunately, Georgia law holds property owners and managers liable for any harm that happens to a visitor or guest if the property owner’s negligence caused unsafe conditions that led to the accident. You have the right to demand compensation from the negligent property owner to cover medical bills and other losses.
How Can An Augusta Slip And Fall Lawyer Help Me?
Getting full and fair compensation in a slip-and-fall case may not be easy. The property owner – or, more often, their insurance company – may claim that you were to blame for your accident and therefore entitled to nothing. Hiring a lawyer shows them you’re serious.
An attorney can investigate the circumstances of your accident, building a strong case of negligence against the property owner. This can include interviewing witnesses, collecting any video footage of the accident, and inspecting the business’s safety records. Your attorney can also negotiate a fair settlement for you, and if the property owner doesn’t compromise, then take the case to trial.
