Your Options After Falling

Atlanta Premises Liability Settlement

YOUR OPTIONS AFTER A SLIP AND FALL INJURY

Unfortunately, people suffer injuries when they are away from home every day—in stores, restaurants, parking lots, swimming pools, and other public places. Slipping on a wet floor or tripping over a carelessly discarded item can result in a broken bone or other painful injuries, along with steep medical bills, lost work time and disruption to your life.

Our personal injury attorneys can assess your case, counsel you about your options, and figure out the best strategy for recovering damages in your slip and fall litigation in Atlanta.

SETTLE OUT OF COURT

Making a claim after a slip or fall injury requires making a convincing case that there was negligent behavior on the part of the property owner. Our Atlanta slip fall attorneys will investigate the events that led up to your accident and look at all your medical records. You may be able to claim additional costs related to slip and fall injuries, including pain and suffering.

The insurance company of the property owner may respond to your claim with a settlement offer. Often this is their preferred choice since they would like to avoid the costs involved with going to trial. At the same time, they hope you will accept the lowest possible offer.

Negotiating a premises liability settlement can be confusing. How strong is your case? Will your claim prevail in a trial? Are all your immediate and secondary accident-related expenses being taken into account in the settlement offer? A fair settlement can be economical for both parties. At the same time, you want to make sure that you, as the injured party, are not short-changed.

PROCEED TO TRIAL

If the property owner does not make a settlement offer, or if the offer is not sufficient, you and your attorney may decide to take your case to trial. In this situation, you need a reliable attorney who can guide you through the entire procedure. Premises liability litigation in Georgia can involve:

  • Filing the proper papers within the statute of limitations
  • Scheduling depositions for all parties involved
  • Preparing for the court case
  • Presenting your claim in court
