Samantha was returning home from work, just like any other day. She pulled into her condominium complex, parked her car in her usual parking spot, and walked down the usual walkway to get to her front door. Unlike most other days, she fell down as she was walking in the hallway and suffered serious injuries. Does this story sound familiar?
Samantha isn’t alone in suffering a Georgia slip and fall injury. People often suffer the effects of someone else’s carelessness, negligence, lack of maintenance, or failure to warn of dangers. However, some people, like Samantha, suffer their injuries because of the following:
- Inadequate lighting
- No lighting
- Electrical defect
When people cannot see where they are walking, there could be hazards in their way that cause them to slip and fall and suffer injuries such as:
- Multiple fractures
- Back and neck injuries
- Torn ligaments and knee injuries (ACL tear)
- Head trauma
- Brain injury
If you suffered any of the above injuries or another injury in a Peachtree slip and fall accident, you may be due compensation if it is found that there was improper lighting where your accident took place. Call an experienced attorney who can perform an inspection of the site and help you prove liability against negligent parties so that you can receive compensation for your injuries.
