“Personal Injury attorneys who know how to value slip and fall cases after taking into consideration the myriad of subjective and concrete factors influencing the outcome”

Cliff Carlson Law, PC is a carefully vetted firm that understands the art of handling sensitive premise liability instances to ensure justice to claimants and resolve uncertainty around negligence. We work with empathy, confidence and professionalism to build a solid case that is based on conclusive evidence around:

  • Slips and trips on slippery surfaces
  • Accidents due to defective stairs
  • Mishaps because of wet or rotten patches on the ground
  • Falling debris from ill-maintained buildings
  • And a lot more

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PREMISE LIABILITY CASES?

This question doesn’t have a straightforward answer. With experience that is based on slip and fall cases in Middle Georgia, we are sensitive to the implications of declaring a party liable.
A premise liability case can be filed if a victim is injured on the property of another individual due to poor integrity of the structures involved (ill-maintained crumbling walls, rotten wood of staircases and so on) or lack of reasonable caution exercised by the landlord in allowing continued presence of risky elements like spilled water, gaping holes and treacherous surfaces.
The definition of the term ‘reasonable’ is ambiguous and turns slip and fall cases into long drawn out legal battles. Falling is a part of life and people need to be alert when navigating their way across unfamiliar property. A claim might make sense if:

  • It can be easily proven that the landlord or the occupier has continually neglected maintenance warnings leading to the accident.
  • The risky element precipitating the mishap has been present for an extended period of time and the landlord or occupier should have been aware of its presence and initiated appropriate action.

This isn’t a simple task and requires significant investigation of the circumstances around the case. No matter how trivial a slip and fall injury may seem, it can fester and have long term medical and physiological impact.
