Slip & Falls

Athens Slip & Fall Lawyer

Protecting Your Rights After an Accident

We have all been through stores and have seen liquids on the floor or witnessed large items falling off of store shelves. It generally is no big deal unless it seriously injures us or someone we know. Serious injuries can arise from situations like these when we happen to be going through a store or a restaurant and unknowingly come across a hazard on the floor that the property owner failed to address. Store owners have a non-delegable duty to their customers to maintain a safe store; however, unfortunately that does not always happen.

If you have been injured on someone else’s property because of their failure to maintain it, our slip and fall accident attorney in Athens can help. Call (706) 760-9220 today to schedule a free initial consultation.

The Realities of Slip & Fall Accidents

It is estimated that many potentially dangerous slip and fall accidents go unreported every year, as individuals at the time do not think their injuries require medical attention. However, each year approximately one million emergency room visits are due to slip and fall incidents. It is crucial that individuals seek medical treatment after a painful slip and fall. These falls can have major consequences on one’s health, with about five percent of all slip and falls resulting in bone fractures or other serious injury. In fact, slip and falls also are the leading cause of occupational injury in people aged 55 and older. Additionally, many brain injuries occur due to slip and fall accidents, which may have a lasting impact on one’s life.

It should come as no surprise that when one is seriously injured in a store, most of the time the insurance company for the store will defend the store’s actions despite sometimes knowing all along that the store and the store owners are in the wrong.

One of our managing attorney’s first jury trials forced the defendant (a large corporate grocery store chain) to withdraw their Answer right before trial due to the defendant’s dishonest actions in their litigation. The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff that was injured in the store who had suffered a permanent knee injury despite the fact that right after the injured person suffered her fall she was told that the store would not accept liability and that the fall was her own fault. All of that changed when The Law Office of Joshua W. Branch, LLC became involved and the matter was presented to a jury of her peers who rendered a verdict for her injuries.

Someone Who Will Stand by Your Side

When someone suffers through a premises liability situation meaning they sustain severe injuries caused by the store owner not maintaining a safe premise, they will need professional legal representation, advice, and counsel as soon as possible to ensure they receive a fair and reasonable outcome. An outcome that takes all of the circumstances of the event in mind and that is just and fair. They need a legal advocate who is aggressive in protecting their rights and is also compassionate in understanding what they have suffered and has the skill and expertise of knowing the inner workings of the human anatomy to fully understand the scope and effect of the injuries.

When one is injured in a slip and fall accident, contacting trustworthy legal representation should come right after medical treatment. Our skilled Athens slip and fall attorney has the necessary experience to get justice for victims who were injured purely due to negligence and lack of safety concern. Josh W. Branch does not represent big businesses and insurance companies, he represents the community. Do not let an accident like this affect your life indefinitely.
