Negligence Leads To Slip-And-Fall Injuries
Property owners are responsible for warning visitors and occupants about dangerous conditions. When a dangerous condition — such as a broken sidewalk, slippery floor, wet floor or icy sidewalk — is not maintained and lacking any warning signs, visitors can slip and fall and suffer injuries as a result. At Cromartie Law, our lawyers and staff are dedicated to representing people who have been injured by the negligence of property owners in northern Georgia.

Types Of Slip-And-Fall Cases
Slip-and-fall accidents can lead to serious injuries. In very serious cases, particularly where elderly people are concerned, these accidents can result in fatalities. Falling objects can also cause injury at retail shops when merchandise has been stacked too high or placed improperly.
Attorney Cromartie represents people who are injured in slip-and-fall accidents on various types of premises such as:
- Apartment buildings
- Fast food establishments
- Retail establishments
- Parking lots
Understanding Georgia’s Slip-And-Fall Law
In Georgia, a property owner is not necessarily liable for damages when a person slips and falls on that property; they are only responsible if the slip-and-fall was caused by their negligence or their failure to fix the problem. They are responsible only if they knew about or should have known about the problem, or if they had a chance to repair the problem or warn people about it and failed to do so.
