If you wish to fill a slip and fall lawsuit in Georgia you must satisfy two key criteria. Firstly the owner had to know about the danger, or he should have known about it.
In order to prove this your attorney has to show that the danger had been present for a long time and that the property owner should have known about it. Something is said to be dangerous if it presents a real risk to anyone who comes onto the premises, and if it is not something you could have reasonably avoided.
When it comes to insurance companies, they will try and avoid paying out by saying that the victim should have noticed the dangerous condition and should have avoided it and they will often ask victims leading questions to get them to admit that so that no pay out has to be made. They often argue that the victim was not looking where they were going, so it is very important not to speak to any insurance company but leave everything in the hands of your attorney.
There are many situations where it can be proved that a property owner was negligent and these include not maintaining the roads, pathways or buildings, no proper safety warnings displayed, poor lighting, violations of building codes, lack of staff and hazardous material.
A good slip and fall attorney will gather all of the evidence to ensure that under Georgia law the case has the best possible chance of success.
