Voted Best Personal Injury Law Firm By Georgia Lawyers
Slip and Fall Attorneys in Atlanta
I called Matt after several people recommended him. He was very kind and did a very good job on my son’s case. We are very thankful for the work he did. Most importantly, he was never hard to reach and answered every question we had while going through the process. Matt is the only attorney I will ever call in the future.
My husband is a cyclist that did not fair well against an SUV recently. Matt and his team took phenomenal care of us, allowing us not to stress out (too much) about the little things. Matt and his team handled everything with professionalism. We know we made the right call.
So glad I hired this firm after my rearend car accident. Matt embodies the skill set and values I was looking for. He treats every case like a mini war, and was a zealous advocate on my behalf. And he did so in the most competent and skillful manner. He listened, was empathetic and understood my legal and nonlegal problems.
My 85-year old mom was in a motor vehicle accident with an uninsured motorist. His love, thoroughness and commitment to her case helped us through this accident and her cancer treatment. She underwent successful lobectomy and chemotherapy and is doing exceptionally well. We are immensely grateful.
It was important to me to get the maximum money I could for my broken neck and arm. After getting jerked around for months by State Farm, I interviewed several firms and chose Mr. Wetherington. I’m glad I did. He forced the insurance company to pay twenty times their last offer to me.
It is an honor to share my experience with Mr. Wetherington. He was able to get answers about what happened in my son’s wreck that other attorney’s were not able to do. I am so thankful for the work that he did and he was very thorough in his explanation of why the vehicle had a “defect.”
My case did not settle. The person that hit me only had minimal policy limits. Fortunately, I had my own insurance, which should have provided more money. My insurance company, Allstate, treated me like garbage. We had to sue them and go all the way to trial, which we won.

Georgia Law: Negligent Businesses and Property Owners May Be Liable for a Slip and Fall
Slip and fall accident claims arise under premises liability law. Under Georgia law (Georgia Code § 51-3-1), property owners and property occupants (businesses) have a legal responsibility to ensure that they are kept in reasonably safe and secure condition. They can be held liable for any customer or other invitee injury if the injury occurred due to negligence.
In other words, a business or property owner in Atlanta may be liable for a slip and fall accident—but they are not automatically legally responsible. To hold a defendant liable for slip and fall accident injuries, a plaintiff must prove that they were injured due to unsafe conditions on the premises. Some potential examples of unreasonably dangerous slip and fall hazards include:
- Unmarked wet floors;
- Loose or damaged floorboards;
- Tattered carpets;
- Debris in walking areas; and
- Broken or damaged stairs.
