Slip and Fall Law Firm in Newnan, GA
Are Your Slip, Trip & Fall Injuries a Result of Property Owner Negligence?
While blameless accidents truly do occur, some slip, trip, and fall accidents are the result of negligence. Property owners, both public and private, have a duty to provide reasonably safe environments for visitors, including customers, clients, and guests. When an unsafe condition exists, and the property owner is aware of or should be aware of the condition, yet fails to correct it, they have acted negligently. If you are injured as a result, you may be able to take legal action.

We understand that many people do not want to pursue a personal injury claim after suffering a slip, trip, or fall. However, these incidents can lead to serious injuries that require treatment.

What Are “Unsafe Conditions?”
There are a wide variety of conditions that can exist on someone else’s property that may be considered “unsafe.” Generally speaking, unsafe conditions are those that could potentially cause another person harm. For instance, a wet, freshly-mopped floor could cause someone to slip and fall. For this reason, stores, restaurants, and other public spaces are required to post adequate signage warning patrons of this potentially unsafe condition.
Other examples of unsafe conditions include:
- Accumulated snow and/or ice
- Inadequate lighting
- Torn carpeting or uneven flooring
- Insufficient security
- Excessive clutter
- Potholes or defective sidewalks
- Dangerous staircases
These are just some of the common causes of slip and fall accidents. Many other factors could lead to an accident. Slip, trip, and falls can result in serious, extensive injuries, including broken bones, brain injuries, internal bleeding, spinal cord injuries, and more.
