Failing to seal off a dangerous area, alert visitors to a potential hazard, or maintain the integrity of a property could constitute negligence.
Kaine Law can manage your case. A lawyer from our team can recover the cost of your healthcare expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
We Can Handle Your Case On Contingency
Kaine Law operates on a contingency-fee basis. This is because we believe in making legal assistance accessible to everyone. When we accept your case, we will do so because we believe that it will succeed.
You do not have to pay your lawyer to start on your case. You only pay them once it is over. A percentage of your settlement will pay for our help. If you do not get a settlement, then we do not get paid for helping you.

Our Team Can Handle Everything Involved In Your Case
While recovering from your injuries, we believe that your personal injury case should be the last thing on your mind. Allow Kaine Law to handle your pursuit of compensation.
We can build your case by:
Investigating the Cause of Your Accident
When we present the liable insurer with your case, we will need to show how your accident happened. We cannot approach the insurer, say you were hurt, and have nothing to back it up. We must prove that you were hurt due to a property owner’s negligence.
Some pieces of information in your case could include:
- Security camera footage
- Photos of the accident scene
- Your medical records
- Testimony from witnesses
- The accident report
- Statements from law enforcement officials
We could also use prior complaints against the property owner to help your case.
Identifying the Negligent Party
After gathering and reviewing the evidence in your case, we can determine who or what party should be responsible for your damages. This will depend on where you were hurt.
For instance, if you were injured at a chain department store, you could sue the corporation that oversees the retailer’s operations. However, if you were injured while visiting a neighbor’s house, you could pursue the owner of the house for damages.
Every successful premises liability case rests on the principle of negligence. With the evidence we find, Kaine Law can prove:
- The property owner had an obligation to keep people safe.
- The property owner did not uphold this obligation.
- You were harmed.
- Your injuries caused financial losses.
Calculating the Cost of Your Losses
The goal of your premises liability case is to recover the cost of your accident-related losses. Our mission is to resolve your case through an insurance settlement or court award.
Some compensable losses in your case may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Medical bills
We can estimate the value of your case based on your wage statements and medical records. We may also consult with experts who can provide insight into any future injury-related expenses.
Negotiating a Settlement With the Insurer
The property where you were hurt may have been covered by insurance. Not only can our team talk to the claims adjuster and present your case, but we can also negotiate a settlement as well.
We will go back and forth with them until we reach an agreement. The decision of whether to accept a settlement is completely up to you.
Filing a Lawsuit In Civil Court
O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33 says that you typically have two years from the date of your slip and fall accident to file a lawsuit. However, this deadline could be subject to change based on where you were hurt. For instance, if you were hurt while on government property, you could have as little as six months to file your lawsuit.
We must file your case within the appropriate timeframe for it to be valid. Upon filing your case in court, we can:
- Consult with medical professionals and economists regarding your case
- Communicate with the other party’s lawyer and insurer
- Present your side of the story to a judge
- List the types and cost of your damages
Our legal services are designed to meet your needs. Let us take care of your case.
