Atlanta Slip and Fall Attorney

slip-and-fall

Of all premises liability accidents, slips, trips, and falls are the most common. Slip and fall accidents can result from hazardous obstacles on a property, unsafe walking areas, slippery surfaces, or improper maintenance. At the heart of most slip and fall accident cases is property owner negligence. Trust The Dixon Firm, P.C. when you need a professional Atlanta slip and fall attorney to help prove a property owner’s negligence for your slip and fall injury.

Property Owner Responsibilities in Georgia

The law in Georgia obligates a property owner to provide reasonably safe premises for his or her visitors. A landowner’s duties include keeping the property clear of obstacles, repairing known slip and fall hazards, and warning visitors of dangers they may not see. If a property owner fails in these legal duties and someone slips and falls as a result, the injured party may be eligible to receive compensation. A plaintiff may prove property owner negligence in a premises liability case if any of the following are true:

The third scenario is the most common and requires a judge or jury to use common sense to decide if the owner did or did not take reasonable steps to keep a property safe. A common defense in slip and fall cases is that the injured party could reasonably have avoided the hazardous condition had he or she been paying attention while walking.

In cases where both the property owner and the injured party may have been partially at fault, Georgia’s comparative negligence rules come into play. If an injured party can prove that he or she was less than half responsible for slip and fall injury, the courts will still award partial compensation. To maximize your chance of earning compensation, partner with a skilled Atlanta personal injury lawyer with experience in premises liability cases and who can prove the property owner is more at fault for the accident than you were.

Common Slip and Fall Accidents

A number of elements can cause a harmful slip and fall accident. In nearly any location, a person may become a victim of a painful slip and fall injury if the conditions aren’t fit for reasonably safe navigation. Some of the injury accidents our Atlanta slip and fall lawyers commonly represent at our personal injury firm at The Dixon Firm, P.C. stem from:

A slip and fall accident may result from an improperly trained employee, negligent spill cleanup practices, poor building maintenance, or badly installed staircases or walking surfaces.

Our Client Reviews

The epitome of
“Just Trust the Process”.

The Dixon Firm was the best choice hands down. Attorney Ramos and his Associate, Priscilla were very professional and honest. Right from the beginning of contact we were put at ease and assured that our concerns would be addressed and resolved to satisfaction. Every bullet point regarding our case was discussed in detail and we felt comfortable with each update given. Priscilla was phenomenal. Her tone, her energy and her heartfelt empathy was much needed during this process. The way she explained EVERYTHING in layman’s terms when needed was helpful and assured us that we were in good care. Not once was there a question in our minds if we made a mistake in representation. 10/10 definitely recommend. Congratulations to an amazing team for being THE BEST LAW FIRM in ATLANTA,

I was very satisfied with the service

If you have ever experienced injury from a car accident then you are aware of how it can change your life physically and financially. I was so relieved to have Troy Kiber represent me. He treated me like a friend and not just another case on his calendar. He explained the process to me clearly and allowed me to make decisions based on what was best for me not just what would quickly resolve the case. I truly appreciate him for his thoroughness. I was very satisfied with the service I received and pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

I highly recommend the Dixon Firm

I have to say I am very impressed with The Dixon Firm. My case was very different then most injury cases because it involved my son and an injury at school. Most lawyers I looked into hiring were too afraid to take on my case. But not the Dixon firm! I was given a chance to be heard and Rod and his amazing staff and lawyers took on my case. Daniel Adamson was my lawyer and he communicated with me through it all! I was a little concerned with the pandemic that I’d be waiting forever but this was not the case, Daniel stayed on my case and worked diligently and kept in contact with me every step of the way. I highly recommend the Dixon Firm and ask for Daniel, he will not disappoint! Thanks Daniel for everything you did for me and my son!
