Atlanta Slip and Fall Lawyer

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident in Atlanta you must take legal action as soon as possible. A slip and fall injury can be minor in some cases, and life-changing in others. Some slip and fall accidents can cause paralysis or traumatic brain injuries, requiring years of ongoing medical costs. The property manager or property owner should always maintain the safety of their property. If a property owner does not follow safety protocols or fails to uphold certain safety standards and you suffer an injury on their property, you may be entitled to compensation. 
At the Hines Law Firm, an Atlanta slip and fall lawyer has the knowledge and experience needed to build a strong case to help you recover the compensation you’re owed for an accident that was caused by a negligent property owner.

How Can An Atlanta Slip and Fall Lawyer Help?

A slip and fall accident can occur when someone is injured on another person’s property due to dangerous conditions. The property manager or owner of the property where your injuries occurred must ensure your safety. 

After a slip and fall accident, you must file a claim to recover compensation for your medical bills and other losses. When the insurance company gets your claim, they will contact you and ask to record your statement. They typically place the blame on the accident victim and will do whatever they can to minimize your payout or deny your claim. They may ask questions that are confusing or misleading, hoping you will say something that harms your claim. 

Instead of speaking with the insurance company, contact a slip and fall lawyer at the Hines Law Firm. They will handle every aspect of your claim, including:

  • Investigating the accident
  • Gathering evidence
  • Assessing damages
  • Filing paperwork
  • Consulting with experts
  • Handling all interactions with the insurance company
  • Settlement negotiations
  • Filing a lawsuit on your behalf (if necessary)

The most difficult part about this type of injury case is establishing who the responsible party is. Because of this, it’s important to contact a slip and fall lawyer as soon as possible. They will immediately conduct an investigation and gather evidence before the property owner or manager can make repairs or hide the evidence. Not hiring an attorney can result in a lower settlement amount or your case may be denied.

At the Hines Law Firm, our attorneys have extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies and they will not back down or be intimidated. They will go above and beyond to fight for the fair settlement you deserve due to an accident that was caused by the negligence of another.
