Why You Need a Marietta Texas Slip and Fall Attorney
If you are badly injured in a slip-and-fall accident, you may not have the time or energy to pursue a claim while recovering. An experienced lawyer will have the resources and the knowledge needed to handle every aspect of your claim. Insurance companies commonly devalue or deny valid claims, but having a lawyer on your side will ensure you are not taken advantage of. They can help you by accurately estimating the value of your claim, thoroughly investigating your fall to collect supporting evidence, and skillfully negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company on your behalf.
Common Slip and Fall-Related Injuries
Slip and fall accidents can cause severe injuries with life-changing repercussions. Common injuries include:
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
TBIs can range from a mild concussion that resolves in a few weeks to severe trauma that can leave a victim permanently disabled.
Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
Back and spinal cord injuries can result in varying degrees of pain and possibly paralysis or a loss of sensation below the level of injury.
Brachial Plexus injury and shoulder dislocation are common after a jolt to the shoulder in a fall.
Broken bones are common in the wrists, ankles, and especially the hips. Hip injuries often require surgical intervention and hospitalization and are particularly dangerous for elderly adults.
Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains often occur in the soft tissue of the legs, ankles, arms, wrists, and hands when a person lands hard in a fall.
Who Is Liable in a Marietta Slip and Fall Claim
The party liable in a Marietta slip and fall claim will depend on where your accident occurred. Slip and fall accident cases fall under premises liability laws. These laws hold property owners accountable for ensuring visitors are reasonably safe. For example, under premises liability law, many owners must:
- Warn of known hazards (e.g., wet floors, broken steps, etc.)
- Ensure that hazards are taken care of quickly and efficiently
- Maintain the premises to keep it free of potential dangers
- Regularly inspect the property for hazards
When a property owner or manager fails in their duty, they can be held accountable for resulting injuries.
