There are many damages that may be available to you after suffering an injury in an Atlanta slip-and-fall accident. Your case will first depend on proving that the property owner did not maintain the property or keep it free from hazardous conditions. If you have proof, such as pictures, witnesses, and medical reports from your fall, you should have a legitimate slip-and-fall lawsuit in Georgia.
Under Georgia law, victims of slip-and-fall accidents are entitled to the following financial damages:
- Medical bills – this would include expenses from x-rays, surgery, doctor’s visits, medications, physical therapy, and more
- Lost wages – if you couldn’t work due to your physical injury, you should be entitled to the compensation you missed while you were injured and out of work
- Temporary or permanent losses – this includes expenses related to taking care of yourself or your family, cooking, cleaning, etc.
- Instances of pain and suffering and mental anguish
Every case is different, depending on the details of your accident and injuries involved. This is why it is critical to speak with an experienced Fulton County premises liability lawyer about your case. Georgia law requires that property owners or possessors of the property maintain their premises so that they are free from hazards.
If an unsafe property condition was the cause of your slip-and-fall accident and injury, the negligent property owner may be liable for your expenses.
