Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Georgia

Slip and fall incidents can occur due to several reasons, such as:

  • Wet or slippery floors – Spilled liquids or freshly mopped floors can make walking treacherous.
  • Uneven surfaces or flooring – Unleveled grounds or broken tiles can easily cause someone to trip
  • Poor lighting – Inadequate illumination can mask potential hazards in corridors and on stairways.
  • Cluttered walkways – Obstructions, debris, and misplaced items are common culprits of slips and falls at residences, stores, offices, warehouses, and other locations. 
  • Defective stairs or railings – Damaged steps and loose handrails can lead to serious falls.

No matter the cause of your slip and fall, Gautreaux Law Firm is prepared to fight for your rights. 

About Georgia’s Premises Liability Law

In Georgia, premises liability is the body of law that determines the legal responsibilities of property owners regarding accidents and injuries that occur on their property. The duty owed by the owner varies depending on the relationship with the visitor:

  • Invitees – People invited onto a property for business-related reasons, such as customers. Owners have a duty of reasonable care toward invitees.
  • Licensees – Those who enter the property for their purposes, like social guests. Owners must generally warn of known dangers not obvious to the licensee.
  • Trespassers – Individuals on the property without permission. Owners generally owe minimal duty, usually not to cause willful harm.

Steps To Take After a Slip and Fall Accident

Take the following steps to protect your rights and well-being if you experience a slip and fall:

  • Seek medical attention to ensure your injuries are documented and treated promptly
  • Document the incident by photographing the accident site, any visible injuries, and potential hazards
  • Gather witness information on individuals who can corroborate your account
  • Report the accident to the property owner or manager to ensure there’s a formal record
  • Consult with an attorney who can help navigate the complexities of your case
