Common Causes of Corinth, Georgia Slip and Fall Accidents
As is the case with other personal injury matters, in order to recover, a victim must be able to establish that his or her accident was the result of someone else’s negligence. There are many ways that a slip and fall accident can be caused by negligence. These include:
Lack of handrails
Exposed electrical wiring
Failure to manage snow and ice
When slip and fall accidents occur, victims can be severely injured. In some cases, these injuries may keep a person from being able to work or even care for themselves.
