When injured in an Atlanta slip and fall accident, it is critical to make sure you choose the right attorney to represent you. Not every injury lawyer has experience in handling Georgia premises liability cases. For this reason, it is crucial to pick the right attorney for your case. When a lawyer has experience in trip-and-fall and slip-and-fall cases, he will do the following:
- Investigate the accident scene. This action would include a site inspection of where your slip and fall took place to determine if there is a dangerous condition still present or if it has been removed or repaired.
- Collect evidence. A lawyer will photograph the scene and look for video surveillance that could show the dangerous condition that caused your accident and injury.
- Find witnesses. The attorney will seek people who where present and saw your slip and fall accident and injury. If no one saw your fall, there may have been someone who knew about the dangerous condition.
In order for your lawyer to be successful in pursuing your Georgia slip and fall case, he must establish that a dangerous condition existed and that the property owner or possessor of the property had knowledge of the condition prior to your fall.
