Slip and Fall

The most common type of premises liability injury arises out of a "slip and fall" or "trip and fall" incident. According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), falls account for over 8 million hospital emergency room visits each year, representing the leading cause of visits. In addition, it is estimated that 22% of slip and fall incidents result in more than 31 days away from work.

Injuries caused by "slip and fall" or "trip and fall" incidents have devastating effects on those injured and their families.

These incidents can and do dramatically alter a person's life. Injuries include arm and leg fractures, ruptured tendons, back and spine pain, brain injuries and even death. The medical bills and lost wages associated with these injuries are often financially crippling to those injured and their families.

In Georgia, property owners are required to keep their premises and approaches in a safe condition. An owner of premises can be held liable when someone slips and falls or trips and falls on their property. These incidents occur in grocery stores, home improvement stores, restaurants and virtually all other types of commercial establishments. Slip and fall and trip and fall injuries can also occur on a homeowner's private property from uneven sidewalks, deck collapses and other defective conditions. Falls are caused by a variety of factors, including the owner's failure to remove foreign objects on the floor, failure to repair defects on their property, failure to appropriately design their premises, failure to warn about a dangerous condition on their property and the failure to remove or improperly removing ice, snow or water.

If a property owner has failed to correct or warn of a hazardous or dangerous condition on their property, they can be held liable when someone slips and falls or trips and falls on their property and is injured as a result.
