Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

When a property owner fails to maintain a reasonable safe environment for their visitors, accidents can, and will, happen. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Wet, slippery or slick floors
  • Poor or inadequate lighting
  • Lack of proper signage
  • Broken or unsafe staircases
  • Improper maintenance
  • Debris left in walkways
  • Cracked or uneven sidewalks

How Do I Prove the Property Owner Was Negligent?

When filing a personal injury lawsuit for a slip and fall accident, you must be able to prove that the property owner was negligent. Under Georgia law, this requires you to establish that a) the property owner had actual knowledge of the dangerous condition, or should have reasonably known, and that b) you were unaware of the hazardous conditions before the slip and fall accident occurred.

To prove that the property owner knew about, or should have known about, the dangerous conditions that caused your accident, your injury attorney in Atlanta will need to present clear evidence. This evidence may establish that the hazard existed on the property for a long period of time—meaning that, had the property owner conducted routine maintenance, the hazard would have been discovered.

Alternatively, your lawyer may present evidence that employees of the store were in the immediate vicinity of the hazard, meaning they should have noticed and removed the dangerous conditions before they caused your accident. It may also be true that the store was simply understaffed. Whatever the case may be, it is important that you have a personal injury attorney working on your case.

Gathering Evidence for Your Injury Claim

When you work with the team at Schneider Hammers, we will move quickly to gather evidence for your case. In order to prove that the property owner was negligent, our lawyers may:

  • Visit the scene of the slip and fall accident
  • Take pictures of the hazardous conditions
  • Review surveillance footage, if available
  • Interview anyone who witnessed the accident
  • Review the store’s cleaning logs and records
  • Obtain copies of the accident reports
