We Determine Liability for Your Slip and Fall Accident
Property owners in Georgia have a duty to maintain safe premises, per O.C.G.A. § 51-3-1. Thus, the owner of the property where you slipped and fell could be liable for your damages.
We will learn the details of your slip and fall accident, and those details will lead us to liable parties. In addition to the property owner, other parties could have contributed to your slip and fall accident, such as:
- A property manager
- The manufacturer or installer of defective flooring or stairs
- Any individual that exposed you to a slipping hazard
Liable parties are often negligent – in other words, they acted in a way that put you in harm’s way. Negligence generally makes someone responsible for resulting damages.
Attorneys from our firm have experience with slip and fall accident cases in Gainesville, so you can count on them to handle the entirety of your case.

What Damages from a Slip and Fall Accident Entitle You to Compensation?
Slip and fall accidents can cause many recoverable damages, including:
If your injury causes a work absence, you may lose income, bonuses, retirement benefits, and productivity. A long-term absence may cause you to lose your position.
Lingering injury symptoms could force you to reduce your hours or change jobs, diminishing your earning power. All professional damages may entitle you to compensation.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering covers emotional anguish, traumatic memories, physical pain, and other non-economic damages. A settlement may cover these damages and also treatment for your trauma.
You may receive coverage for:
- CT scans
- Doctors’ appointments
- All other healthcare costs related to your slip and fall accident
As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) explains, falls can cause broken bones and other serious injuries. Liable parties may pay the price to treat your injuries.
The Loss of a Loved One
If your loved one passed away from their slip and fall injuries, covered losses in wrongful death cases may include funeral expenses, lost financial support, lost companionships, lost guidance, and other damages.
Our firm will determine the total cost of your losses, which is the amount we will seek when negotiating a settlement.
