Looking For A Slip And Fall Lawyer?
Were you injured on someone else’s property due to their carelessness or negligence? When property owners fail to properly maintain their grounds, accidents and injuries happen. Victims of negligent behavior deserve compensation for their injuries so that they can pay medical expenses. Brad Stephens is a versatile personal injury lawyer who represents victims in premises liability cases involving slip and fall/trip and fall accidents and more. The Law Office of Brad Stephens is based in Cartersville, Georgia. Brad regularly assists clients in White, Adairsville, Emerson, GA and the surrounding areas.
In order to have a viable premises liability case, you need to prove not only that you were injured, but also that your injuries were a direct result of the property owner’s action (or inaction). You must prove that the property owner should have recognized hazardous conditions on their property and failed to eliminate or warn visitors of those hazards. Your lawyer has to show the court that your slip and fall/trip and fall accident was caused by conditions that a reasonable person would have identified as a potential danger. You also have to prove that the defendant had plenty of time to correct the hazard and failed to do so.
Accidents happen, but when a property owner is at fault, justice should be served. It is unfair for you to have to pay medical bills for an injury that someone else caused. If you think you may have a premises liability case and want to consult with a slip and fall lawyer, contact Brad Stephens today. He will offer advice, guide you through the situation, and represent you aggressively in court in order to obtain a settlement.

Just because you got an injury on someone else’s property does not mean you have a valid premises liability case. Also, the fact that there were unsafe conditions on the property doesn’t necessarily mean that the owner was negligent. You have to prove that the property owner failed to practice reasonable care and maintenance. There are some cases in which the property owner couldn’t have reasonably prevented the injury in question.
These are common causes for slip and fall/trip and fall accidents:
- Wet floors
- Snow and ice
- Poor lighting in hazardous areas
Other types of premises liability cases may involve swimming pool accidents, elevator or escalator accidents, and exposure to toxic chemicals. Whether you had a slip and fall accident or sustained an injury due to another type of accident, Brad Stephens is an experienced lawyer who can help you seek compensation. He represents injury victims in the Emerson, GA area.

Trip And Fall Lawyer: When You Need One
In order for a party to be liable for damages, it must be proven that they failed to act as a reasonable person would have acted in the situation.
- Does the property owner routinely check for potential hazards?
- Were safety procedures followed in the time leading up to the accident?
- Is there a documented log of who carried out those procedures and when?
- Did the hazard exist for a long enough time period that a reasonable property owner would have taken care of it?
- Did poor lighting play a role in the accident?
Consider consulting with a slip and fall lawyer in order to determine if any of these were the case.
Falling Injury Lawyer: Know Your Rights
In some cases, the court finds the victim to be partially or fully responsible. Ask yourself these questions before you consider litigation.
- Were you doing something that prevented you from noticing the hazard, such as using a mobile device?
- Did you have a legitimate reason to be in the hazardous area where your accident occurred?
- Were there warning signs or safety measures that you ignored?
