https://www.johnfoy.com/atlanta-slip-... - Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of unintentional deaths and injuries in the United States. If you or a loved one has been a victim of a slip and fall accident due to the negligence of another, you need to contact an experienced attorney right away.
A slip and fall is a tort or civil wrong in which the property owner was negligent in maintaining adequate code provisions and thus allowed a dangerous condition to exists that cause the slip or fall.
Slip and falls involve the everyday accidents which can include such things as, tripping on uneven sidewalks, slipping on ice, tripping on the stairs, falling into a manhole, slipping on spills or wet floors, and any other accident of that nature.
Tort law is different from criminal law. While a tort is not necessarily considered an illegal act, it does cause harm and therefore the law allows anyone who is harmed to recover their loss. A slip and fall accident can be serious, and result in a number of serious injuries including broken bones, hip fractures, traumatic brain injuries, permanent disability and in the most extreme case, death.
According to the CDC in Georgia, 1 million people suffer from accidental falls each year in the US.
