If you have suffered a broken handrail injury in Georgia, our Atlanta slip and fall lawyer can help you recover full compensation.
Can I recover compensation if I slip and fall due to a faulty handrail?
If you have been injured due to a defective handrail, there are several things you need to do to make sure your claim is preserved. The first thing you need to do is get medical attention. You need to get this care in order to maximize your recovery potential, but also to document the injuries that you’ve suffered in a timely fashion. The next thing you need to do is put the owner of the property on notice of your claim and of what occurred. If that is a commercial property, you need to alert the owner or someone that may be working at the property and ask them to fill out an incident report. If you were on a residential property, alert the owner and ask them to put their insurance carrier on notice.
The next thing you need to do is be aware that the insurance company may contact you and ask you to give a written statement. If that occurs, don’t give them a written statement. You have no obligation to do this, and doing so can potentially be detrimental to your claim. The next thing you need to do is contact a personal injury attorney who has experience handling premises liability matters, such as injuries occurring from a defective handrail.

If you’ve been injured in this type of situation, please give us a call as soon as possible after the incident so that we can begin preserving evidence and be ready to present your claim in the most effective way.
