Have You Been Injured in a Slip and Fall Accident?
A personal injury lawyer can assist with your claim if you are a victim of a slip and fall accident leading to injury. These accidents can sometimes lead to severe injuries. When someone slips and falls, they can receive injuries to the back, neck, or spine. The injured person can also suffer from broken bones or head injuries. Anyone should seek immediate medical attention after the fall as it may sometimes be fatal.

The property owner’s insurance can help with the medical expenses such as the doctor’s bills, medicines, accommodations, and other expenses such as lost wages that the victim incurred from the fall. It is important to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible after the incident.

Property Owner Responsibility
In a slip and fall case, the property owner has to show in court that he or she took all reasonable measures possible to prevent an accident. For instance, in a common slip and fall claim in a store, the property owner has to prove, along with other things, that he or she put up enough warning signs due to wet floors. If the accident was attributable to the injured party’s own carelessness, like ignoring warning signs or driving under the influence of alcohol, the compensation claim could be void or reduced.
What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident?
If you have been in an unfortunate incident where you slipped and fell, the first thing you should do is get checked by a doctor. Keep all documentation that you receive in emergency rooms or at doctor appointments. Also, let the property owner know that you have been injured and request an incident report be made.
Avoid speaking to the other party’s insurance company until you have spoken with a slip and fall attorney. Gather any evidence (photos, medical records, witness contacts, incident report) that you can, and contact a slip and fall attorney right away.
Wet Floors Left Unattended and Without Warning Signs can be Enough for a Slip and Fall Claim.
In most cases, the responsible party is insured and the compensation for a personal injury claim can be recovered from the insurance company.
Damages for a personal injury claim cover both non-financial and financial compensation. Non-financial compensation is often called a pain and suffering claim, which cannot be estimated immediately. As per Atlanta laws, a person is entitled to a maximum of $300,000 for pain and suffering if that person is filing a personal injury claim.
