Who Pays For A Slip-And-Fall Injury?

Slip-and-fall accidents can cause serious injuries such as broken bones, torn ligaments, herniated disks and concussion. This can result in thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost-time at work, and ongoing pain. So who will pay for the damages?

Many people assume property owners are responsible for losses resulting from accidents on their premises. However, just because you were injured on someone else's property does not mean that the property owner will pay. To recover compensation, you must show that a condition on the property was unsafe or defective, and you were injured as a result.

Several parties may be responsible for injuries suffered in a slip and fall. Here are some examples:

· The property owner

· A service company responsible for maintaining the property

· A contractor working on the site

· The manufacturer of defective building materials

Prompt investigation is essential to determine if someone is liable. Property owners may make repairs following an accident, so it is important to collect and preserve evidence of liability. The longer you wait to contact an attorney, the harder it will be to prove your case. Evidence may include:

· Pictures of the unsafe condition

· Witness statements

· The shoes and clothing you wore during the accident

· Medical records to document your injuries

It often takes a lawyer's help to prove that someone else was responsible for your injury. Some businesses deny all personal injury claims, regardless of merit, based on the hope that the injured person will give up and not contact an attorney.

The law firm of Isenberg & Hewitt, PC handles cases of injuries suffered in slip and falls in the Atlanta Metro area.
