Bader Scott Injury Lawyers Represents Georgia Fall Injury Victims
A Mableton slip and fall lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to develop a case against the property owner or lessee responsible for the location where you fell.
These parties must keep their stores, restaurants, homes, or other properties safe for those who visit. This could include anything from mopping spills to repairing holes to replacing a lightbulb when it burns out.
The area of law concerned with slips and falls is property liability. This type of personal injury law allows injured victims to hold the property owner or another responsible party liable. If we can show that your injuries occurred because the property owner did not provide the required duty of care to protect you from harm, you may be able to recover compensation.
Slips and fall injuries are not the only type of property liability claim possible. Other types of falls also qualify. This could include trips or falls from a height, such as when a railing gives way on a balcony. Pool accidents, dog bites, and other injury incidents also support this type of claim.
At Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, we represent fall victims based on contingency. You will not need to provide us with any money upfront. We do not ask our clients to pay a retainer. Instead, we get attorney’s fees after securing compensation in your case. We do not get paid unless you do.

Understanding Mableton Slip and Fall Injuries and Fall Cases
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), common causes for fall injuries include:
- Spills and leaks
- Tracked rain or snow
- Untreated ice
- Rolled rugs or mats
- Items in a walkway
- Poor lighting
Injuries can vary from bruises, bumps, lacerations, and scratches to sprains, broken bones, and more serious injuries. Back and neck injuries, head injuries, and traumatic brain injuries are all possible.
Who is Owed a Duty of Care in a Slip and Fall Case?
Georgia laws allow fall victims to hold the property owner or occupier responsible under certain circumstances only. In general, only those invited onto the property–including guests and customers–and those who have other business on the property are owed a duty of care. This is possible under OCGA §51-3-1 and OCGA §51-3-2, respectively.
When it comes to someone who suffered injuries while trespassing, the situation is not as clear. Under OCGA §51-3-3, property owners do not owe most trespassers a duty of care, but there are exceptions.
When we review a slip and fall case, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can explain if the landowner owed you a duty of care. This is essential for you to recover a payout in your case.
How Long Do I Have to Sue the Property Owner?
It is important that you contact us early enough to give us time to work on your case. Under Georgia’s statute of limitations on personal injury cases, OCGA §9-3-33, you only have a limited time to sue the property owner or another responsible party.
Generally, this deadline is two years from the date of your fall, but other rules could apply. For example, if you fell in a municipal building or on another property controlled by a government agency, you could have only a few months to begin the process.
We can determine the timeline for your case during your initial consultation.
