Contact the attorneys at Jonathan R. Brockman, P.C. to discuss your slip and fall accident as soon as you are able. The sooner you meet with your attorney, the sooner we can commence their investigation into your accident.

We may hire an engineer or a safety professional to review all of the evidence and offer their expert opinion about how the defective or dangerous condition caused your accident and injury.

Types of Slip and Fall Accidents We Handle

Jonathan R. Brockman, P.C. has experience handling all kinds of slip and fall accidents. These may include accidents caused by the following defects, regardless of where they occurred:

  • Snow and ice
  • Potholes
  • Spilled liquids
  • Spilled grease
  • Sidewalk cracks
  • Loose mats and rugs
  • Loose railings and floorboards
  • Poorly constructed stairs

Georgia law requires all claims for injuries caused by slip and fall accidents to begin within two years of the date of the accident. A lawsuit filed even one day late may be dismissed.

Under Georgia state law, property owners owe a duty of care to people who come upon their property for any lawful purpose. If the property owner’s failure to exercise ordinary care in keeping their premises safe causes someone’s injuries, they can be held liable.

In other words, your attorney will need to show that the property owner or manager was liable to prevail to win your slip and fall case.

The law also requires the injured party and their lawyer to show that the property owner was aware of the dangerous condition on their property. We may show that the property owner had actual knowledge of the hazardous condition on their property, or we may argue that they should have known about the hazard.

Georgia law requires that every person be aware of their surroundings and take precautions to prevent injuries to their person. That means you won’t be able to recover full damages for an injury caused by your own negligence, even if you can prove that the property owner was negligent too.

Any judgment you recover at trial will be reduced by the percentage of your own negligence. For example, if the jury awards you $100,000 for your injuries, but finds that you were 50% liable for your accident and resultant damages, then your payment will be reduced by 50% to $50,000.

If the jury finds that your negligence was 51% or greater, then you won’t be able to recover monetary damages. Your attorney will defend you from unfair accusations of negligence to protect your right to compensation.
