Atlanta Slip and Fall Lawyers
Providing Expert Representation in Georgia Premises Liability Law
Property owners are responsible for managing safe conditions on the property they own. Unfortunately, every year, thousands of people in the United States suffer serious injuries due to a slip and fall or a trip and fall accident. When these slip, trip, and fall accidents occur, they are generally considered premises liability cases.
Where Cases of Slip & Falls Occur
Cases involving slip and fall accidents can occur inside or outside at a:
- Place of business
- Place of public gathering
- Workplace, such as a construction site
Dangerous conditions on a property can cause injuries due to cracked or uneven stairways/sidewalks, wet floors, an object on the floor, and snow or ice accumulation. Landlords and hotel/motel owners may be held responsible for unsafe conditions present in their housing accommodations that cause injuries to their tenants or guests.

Understanding Their Duty to Warn
The liability of a property’s owners or proprietors will vary depending on the legal rules and principles in place in the state where the injury occurred. Generally, an owner or proprietor of a home, building, hotel/motel, or public store has a duty to protect people lawfully on their property from injuries caused by dangerous conditions that they should have known about. Depending on the circumstances, the premises owner or proprietor may still be liable for injuries you sustain while on their premises, even if they warned you of potential injury. If you believe this is the case, our Atlanta slip and fall attorneys at The Mabrey Firm are here to help!
Determining Slip and Fall Liability
Each state has different laws when it comes to defining negligence and what role that negligence plays when determining a settlement. Because of this, some people may try to convince you that if you played any part in causing your own accident, you won't be able to pursue compensation. This is not true.
Georgia is a contributory negligence state, which means that even if you are found to be partially responsible for the incident, you will still be able to recover compensation if you are found to share less than 50% of the blame. How do you know your own level of responsibility for the accident? Good question! Our skilled injury attorneys are here to help you determine whether or not you have a case.
