Atlanta Slip and Fall Attorney Litigates Injury Claims
Bringing claims for accident victims and defending property owners in Georgia
Georgia law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise reasonable care and a patron or visitor is injured as a result, the victims may be entitled to compensation for any injuries. Homeowners have a similar duty to make their grounds safe for guests and licensees, such as delivery persons, who enter the property. The Law Offices of Michael D. Harper, P.C. employs a practical, professional approach to ensure that our clients obtain a fair resolution in slip and fall cases.
Getting Georgia slip and fall victims justice
For a slip and fall victim to obtain compensation, evidence must prove that a dangerous condition on the premises caused the injury and that at least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
I help injury victims assemble the evidence to prove these elements and get the recovery they deserve. Conversely, I help property owners establish facts that disprove liability, such as these:
- There was no dangerous condition on the premises.
- The dangerous condition on the premises was so obvious that a reasonable person would have recognized the danger and avoided it.
- The owner or an employee’s treatment of the dangerous condition was reasonable.
Because I understand both sides of slip and fall cases, I am able to deliver professional representation that covers every element of the case.
Using expert consultants to advance the client’s case
The Law Offices of Michael D. Harper, P.C. consults with knowledgeable and respected experts while preparing your case. With the assistance of physicians, chiropractors and forensic engineers, I can determine causation, the extent of the harm, and the prognosis for recovery. This knowledge allows me to negotiate the best possible settlements. If trial is necessary, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jury can grasp the true facts of the accident.
Contacting an attorney quickly bolsters your case
By immediately consulting an attorney, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. I thoroughly investigate every case and often visit the premises where the accident occurred to gather crucial evidence, photograph the accident scene and interview witnesses. Importantly, injury victims who delay could forfeit their right to file a claim by missing the deadline set by Georgia’s statute of limitations.
