If a slip and fall accident caused you a serious injury, give attorney David Dekle a call today. In Georgia, premises liability law governs slip, trip, and fall injuries. As a former insurance defense lawyer, David Dekle defended retail establishments in slip and fall cases. Therefore, he understands the law of premises liability better than most. A business owner has a duty to keep his or her premises safe. This requires reasonable inspection procedures and the affirmative duty to clean up spills or other dangerous conditions that may exist.
While invitees have a duty to exercise care for their own safety, they do not assume the risk of injury caused by dangerous conditions of which they are not aware.
If you have fallen in a grocery store or other retail establishment, let attorney David Dekle evaluate your claim. If it can be proven that the owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, you could be entitled to compensation. In addition, the earlier you retain counsel the better in these situations. The owners and occupiers of retail establishments are notorious about failing to preserve evidence. Therefore, an early consultation enables your attorney to place an adverse party on notice that it should preserve any evidence.
