Slip and fall accidents are among the most common types of accidents in Cumming and elsewhere in Georgia. In most cases, the accident victim is able to get right back up off the ground and walk away with nothing more than minor bruises and perhaps some embarrassment. It happens all too often, however, that a slip and fall accident victim will suffer life-changing catastrophic injuries that leave him or her facing a future of chronic pain, restricted range of motion, and perhaps even disability. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, come to The Manton Law Firm, LLC for help.
By hiring our firm, you can give yourself the benefit of working with a Cumming personal injury lawyer with a proven track record of success. We have won more than $50 million for our clients over the years and we know how to get results in slip and fall cases. For example, it is sometimes necessary to retain the services of engineers who can assist in analyzing factors such as the slip resistance of the walking surface that might have contributed to the accident. The goal is to overcome the insurance company's objections that the accident was caused by the injured person, as well as proving the full scope and severity of the plaintiff's injuries.
Slip and fall accident claims are filed under the legal principle of premises liability. It is necessary to prove that the accident was caused by hazardous conditions about which the property owner knew, or reasonably should have known. This is true whether the accident occurred on a slippery floor in a grocery store, on a broken stair step or cracked sidewalk, in a cluttered hallway, or in a poorly lit walkway. We take on slip and fall cases for clients who have suffered broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other types of physical trauma and we urge to you take action now by contacting us for a free case evaluation.
