In Georgia, the owner or occupier must be proven to have been negligent in some way before they can be held liable for a slip and fall accident. Many insurance companies will attempt to reach a quick settlement with an injured person to avoid responsibility for future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.

In most cases, Georgia law affords a two-year period of time in which to file a lawsuit on a claim, so there is no need to act immediately before all the facts are known.
