Who Is Responsible for My Slip and Fall in a Staircase?

The primary responsible party for your slip and fall accident in Georgia is typically the property owner and operator or property possessor. This could be an individual or company that could be held liable for your accident and injuries. However, some parties that may also be held responsible for your slip and fall accident in Atlanta may not be so obvious.

Other responsible parties could include school districts, office building managers, and service providers such as property management companies or janitorial companies. If the staircase was not cleaned properly, cleaned with the wrong product, or not repaired in a timely manner, then the party in charge of maintaining the staircase could be liable for your fall injuries. Additionally, an architect or contractor may be liable if the staircase was not built correctly.

To find out which party may be responsible for your Atlanta slip and fall accident and injury, call Shane Smith Law to find out if you can recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other losses due to your fall.
