Slip-and-fall accident injuries in Georgia can be the result of failing to maintain one’s property, failing to clean up a hazardous condition, or failing to make timely repairs. When someone slips and falls because of a dangerous condition due to the lack of cleanup or maintenance, the injuries can be severe. When a property owner fails to maintain their property or make it safe, victims of slip-and-fall accidents could be entitled to financial damages for their costly injuries.
Injuries that occur in Atlanta slip-and-fall accidents include leg, ankle, and knee injuries, broken bones, serious neck and back injuries, spinal cord injury, head trauma, brain injury, and more. These injuries can be quite costly including bills for the emergency room visits, x-rays, MRIs, other tests, hospital stays, doctor’s visits, surgeries, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical treatment.
Whether you fell at Wal-Mart, Kroger, another supermarket, office building, or apartment complex, the owner of the property should have made sure the property was maintained. If you were injured and suffered costly medical bills due to unsafe walking conditions that occurred from no fault of your own, you need to hold the responsible party liable for your injuries.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, slip and fall injuries generally cost victims an average of $30,000. Due to high costs, victims should not be left to pay for their injuries alone.
