SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT
A “slip and fall” accident is fairly common, and results from someone falling, slipping or tripping when on someone else’s property due to a hazardous condition on that property.
O.C.G.A. § 51-3-1 governs property owner’s liability for slip and fall accidents:
Where an owner or occupier of land, by express or implied
invitation, induces or leads others to come upon his premises
for any lawful purpose, he is liable in damages to such persons
for injuries caused by his failure to exercise ordinary care in
keeping the premises and approaches safe.
Slip and fall cases hold property owners liable for hazardous conditions on their property. While slip and fall incidents are fairly common, successful results from slip and falls are few and far between. It’s important that the hazardous condition is documented, and it’s even more important to hire an attorney experienced in handling slip and fall cases.
