Diligent Alpharetta Slip and Fall Lawyers Pursue Compensation for Clients
Experienced attorneys represent Georgia residents injured due to dangerous conditions
Every year, millions of people visit emergency rooms for serious fall-related injuries, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many of these incidents occur when a visitor to someone else’s property slips or trips on a wet floor or some other type of unsafe walking surface. At Cheeley Law Group, LLC in Alpharetta, our attorneys advocate for individuals who’ve been hurt in falls caused by another party’s negligence. You can rely on our Georgia premises liability lawyers to work diligently while seeking appropriate compensation for you in a verdict or settlement.
Knowledgeable law firm handles the full spectrum of slip and fall cases
Numerous hazardous conditions trigger slip and fall incidents at businesses and in private homes. Spilled liquid, cluttered aisles, damaged tile or carpeting, broken stairs or handrails and numerous other hazards can lead to potentially debilitating injuries. Some of the most common injuries sustained in these accidents are:
- Fractures of the wrist, arm, ankle, hip and other bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Dislocated knees and shoulders
- Spinal injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Soft tissue damage
Serious injuries are costly both physically and financially. While our lawyers can’t fix your injury, we can investigate the evidence to determine if the property owner or another party is liable for the harm you’ve suffered. If so, we can file a legal claim on your behalf.
Determined litigators know how to prove defendants’ liability
Commercial property owners, homeowners, employers and others who invite people to their properties are responsible for keeping conditions safe. When they don’t and accidents happen, they may be held accountable for injuries linked to their carelessness. Proving negligence requires showing that the property owner or manager knew or should have known there was a hazard on the property and didn’t fix it. We have extensive experience achieving successful results in slip and fall cases and other personal injury matters. If you’ve been hurt, our firm will stand up for you too.

Depending on your injuries and situation, you might be entitled to compensation for the following types of damages:
- Current and future doctor costs and other medical expenses
- Lost wages for days missed at work during recuperation
- Loss of earning capacity if you must work at a reduced level
- Physical pain and emotional trauma
- Reduced quality of life
An experienced personal injury lawyer from our firm will carefully review your case to determine the damages you may be entitled to claim.
