Did You Get Injured In A Slip-And-Fall Accident?

Common Injuries From Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents may result in a wide range of injuries, some of which may have long-lasting consequences. These injuries can include:

  • Fractures and broken bones: The impact of a fall can result in fractures or broken bones, often affecting the wrists, hips, ankles, and arms.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs): Head injuries are a serious concern in slip-and-fall accidents. TBIs can differ from mild concussions to severe brain damage, impacting cognitive abilities and overall quality of life.
  • Back and spinal cord injuries: Falls can cause harm to the spinal cord or back, leading to chronic pain, paralysis, and a need for long-term medical care.
  • Soft-tissue injuries: Sprains, strains, and other soft-tissue injuries can cause discomfort and limit mobility, requiring medical attention and rehabilitation.
  • Cuts and bruises: While seemingly minor, deep cuts and extensive bruising can result in infection and other complications, necessitating medical treatment.
  • Emotional distress: Beyond physical injuries, slip-and-fall accidents can lead to emotional distress, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

When an accident happens on someone else’s property, the property owner may be liable. Georgia premises liability laws state that owners have a duty to keep their property reasonably safe from hazardous conditions.

What Kinds Of Damages Can Be Recovered?

When an accident is caused by someone else’s negligence, that person may be liable for damages. Damages for an accident injury can include:

  • Medical expenses: This includes current and future medical bills related to your injuries, such as hospitalization, surgeries, doctor visits, prescription medications, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost wages: If your injuries stop you from being able to work, you can pursue compensation for lost wages and potential future earnings.
  • Pain and suffering: Physical pain, emotional distress, and a diminished quality of life can be considered in seeking damages for pain and suffering.
  • Property damage: If personal items, like clothing or personal devices, were damaged during the accident, you may be able to recover compensation for their repair or replacement.

Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you assess the circumstances of your case. Our lawyers provide individual attention for every case, and they can evaluate your situation to help you better understand what sorts of damages you may be able to recover. We can also help if you are navigating a dispute with an insurance company over an accident claim.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations Deadline For A Slip-And-Fall Accident In Georgia?

In Georgia, the statute of limitations for a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident is typically two years from the date of the incident. A failure to file within this time frame may result in you forfeiting your right to any compensation for your accident injuries. However, a lawyer who is experienced with slip-and-fall accidents will be able to assess your situation and advise you regarding your filing deadlines.
