Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – What Should I Do After I Have Fallen At a Store?

Unfortunately, just because you have fallen at a store, does not mean that the store is liable.  The question is what caused you to fall was it a liquid on the floor, a crack in the tile which caused you to trip, a slippery floor due to the shoes you were wearing?  There are several reasons people fall, in order to have a successful claim against the store owner you will have to prove that there was a dangerous condition in the store and that the store knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to warn you with signs, attempts to fix the dangerous conditions by blocking off the area, etc.

If you can not prove that the store 1) knew about the dangerous condition and failed to warn you, then you have to prove 2) that they should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to warn you.  These cases become tricky very quickly, if the dangerous condition is open and obvious you may not be successful as you have a duty to pay attention where you are going.

The long and short of it is, you should reach out to a Georgia personal injury attorney and speak with them about the specifics of your fall.  If you fell in liquid you may need to have the clothing or shoes you were wearing analyzed by a lab depending upon the extent of your injuries.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
