Slip & Fall Accidents

Savannah Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers

Helping Victims of Slip and Fall Injuries Recover Maximum Compensation

Walking into the grocery store you slip on a wet patch and fall and injure yourself. You’ve spent a few weeks at home recovering from your injury and have spent countless hours at the doctors having x-rays, scans, and other tests done. You’re not getting paid and your medical bills are mounting, and you wonder if you have any options.

Slip and fall injuries can be serious, and it’s frustrating because a simple errand to the store or a walk down the street resulted in this not-so-pleasant situation. You could sue for compensation, but you’ll need to prove who the negligent party was. At Tate Law Group, our slip and fall attorneys in Savannah can explain what your options are and how to rectify an unjust event like a slip and fall accident.

Proving Negligence and Liability for Slip and Fall Accidents

If you’ve injured yourself as the result of a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property due to a defect or dangerous condition, you’ll generally need to show one of the following in order to win your claim for compensation:

  • That the property owner or caretaker should have known of the dangerous condition because a reasonable person would have known about the condition and repaired it.
  • That the property owner or caretaker did know about the condition but did not take the steps to repair it.
  • That the property owner or caretaker actually caused the dangerous condition.

Most property owners, especially those that have customers frequent the premises, properly maintain the public areas. But, there are times when dangerous conditions go unnoticed or ignored which can lead to an issue of premises liability.

Was My Slip & Fall Accident Preventable?

One important matter is determining if the owner of the property could have done anything to prevent the accident from occurring. You may presume that the sheer fact of an accident means that the property owner is at fault, but that is not necessarily true.

For example, a leaky roof may contribute to a slippery floor, but if the owner had taken reasonable steps to fix the leak or it's effects, such as a drainage grate installed into the floor to limit slipperiness, it may be viewed as sufficient to render them not liable for the accident. Of course, each case is different and the facts of each case need to be thoroughly reviewed with an experienced Savannah slip and fall accident lawyer.

When Is a Property Owner Responsible For a Slip & Fall?

Some slip and fall cases do present clear liability when the property owner can be shown to be liable either by having caused the accident or by having failed to prevent it from happening to begin with.

  • If there is a dangerous condition that a reasonable person should have noticed it and fixed it, the property owner can be held liable for slip and fall accidents due to the dangerous condition.
  • If the property owner did notice the dangerous condition but didn’t do anything about it, that also is cause for holding him or her liable. This can happen when a property owner decides to not address dangerous conditions because he/she does not want to spend the money to do so.
