Helping You Get Back On Your Feet
We encounter risky conditions every day: potholes, cracked sidewalks, poorly lit stairs and even torn carpeting can turn a normal shopping trip into a painful situation.
Injuries in these cases can be severe, especially for the elderly. When you’re suddenly facing steep medical bills and time missed from work, in addition to physical injuries, it can be hard to know where to turn to.
At Neville & Cunat, LLP, we work tirelessly to help those who have been injured recover compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and other costs. Our trial-tested attorneys draw on over 45 years’ combined experience in local Georgia courts to take your case in any direction it needs to go. When property owners fail to keep visitors safe, we’re there to hold them accountable.
Who Can Be Held Responsible?
Liability for slip-and-fall accidents is based on the idea of premises liability — that property owners have a duty to keep their property safe for those who visit. This includes commercial properties like the supermarket or retail stores.
A successful premises liability case generally hinges on:
- Proving there was a dangerous condition on the property, like an icy sidewalk or broken stairs
- Showing the property owner knew of the dangerous condition
- Proving there was an unreasonable risk of injury that you could not have anticipated
On residential property, a landlord may be held responsible for injuries to tenants or third parties if they had control over the condition and could have repaired it fairly easily. Special rules apply to government property.
