When you are injured in a Fayette County slip-and-fall accident, the immediate thought that crosses your mind is one of responsibility. You know that you didn’t purposely fall to the floor, but rather a hazardous condition caused your slip-and-fall injury. Now you are left with many questions surrounding the responsibility of your accident, and you need answers to the following questions:
Who is responsible for your injury?
If you were injured on someone else’s property due to a defect, lack of maintenance, failure to caution off a hazard, lack of caution signs, missing handrails, broken stairs, wet floor, loose floor mat, or another hazardous condition, the property owner or property possessor may be liable for your Georgia slip-and-fall injury. However, you need an experienced attorney on your side to represent you and hold the negligent party accountable.
Who is responsible for your medical bills and lost income?
If a negligent property owner or property possessor causes your fall, their insurance company will likely try to settle with you to pay for your medical expenses. However, it is not uncommon for the insurance company to offer you less than what you truly deserve. By adding up all of your medical expenses and current and future lost income, you can get an idea of what compensation is fair in your case.
