Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall is a phrase describing accidents that happen on another party's property, as a result of the other party's negligence. Lawyers categorize these accidents and the injuries arising out of them under the name of premises liability law. There are many kinds of premises liability situations:

  • When a spill in a store aisle causes you to slip and crack your skull
  • When a loose handrail gives way, causing you to fall
  • When the neighbor's dog bites you or your child
  • When a business doesn't shovel ice from the walkway and you fall
  • When merchandise stacked high on a platform falls down and strikes you
  • When you are assaulted in an unpatrolled parking ramp

Slip-and-fall injuries are as serious as any. It is not unusual for a violent fall to break bones or cause traumatic brain injury. At The Law Offices of Eric J. Tatum, LLC, in Buford, Georgia, we pursue slip-and-fall cases as energetically as we pursue motor vehicle accident cases.

Handling Premises Liability And Negligent Security Cases

Georgia premises liability law is simple enough in the law books, but it is complicated by the thousands of related cases that constitute precedents — which together are known as case law. Our lawyer works hard to stay on top of related cases, using them to strengthen your case.

Not every incident on another party's property — a store, an office, a business, a private home — deserves compensation. The injury must have been avoidable with an ordinary degree of care. If you have doubts about whether your injury is compensable, schedule a no-charge, no-obligation case evaluation with our attorney.
