Celebrate! Safely Making Memories with Friends and Family

Slip and Fall

This summer, many people will gather together to celebrate many of life’s moments in celebrations that have been postponed over the last year and a half due to Covid restrictions. These celebrations are long overdue, and we are excited to gather together once again. Summer is also a prime time to hold celebrations since children are out of school, it is a traditional family vacation time, and the longer days and warm weather allow for more time to gather and spend at outdoor venues.

As we join together to celebrate, an air of caution hangs over us. Whether it is due to the awareness of how long we have been apart and acknowledging recent changes in our world or being mindful of everyday risks, we are still grateful for the opportunities to connect this summer. Let this summer be one of making memories with friends and family, enjoying our time together, and celebrating life. 

As mentioned, there is risk around us, but having an Atlanta slip and fall lawyer in your corner can give you peace of mind should you or a loved one get injured while celebrating. Accidents happen, but what about when these accidents can be easily prevented if someone simply took the necessary precautions to keep the area safe? Who is responsible for your injury? Identifying these facts and building your case is why working with an Atlanta slip and fall injury lawyer is so important. If you or a loved one is injured in a slip and fall accident, contact Gilormo Injury Law to discuss your case.

Slip and Fall Injuries at a Venue

Suffering an injury at a celebration with friends and family certainly puts a damper on the festivities. Especially when going to a venue for an event, it is important to be aware of potential hazards.  However, this responsibility ultimately falls on the venue staff and vendors to keep guests safe. Walkways must be kept safe and in good order, free from cracks, holes, and dips that would cause someone to slip and fall. It is up to the venue to warn visitors of dangers and promptly make necessary repairs to avoid injury.

Getting Together for Family Reunions

Many people are eager to hold a family reunion to bring relatives together after being apart for so long. Whether this is an annual event or a special occasion, everyone wants to have a good time. With children and older relatives attending such events, your family reunion venue should be safe so everyone can have a good time. Whether you hold your event at a private or public venue, be aware of the terrain you are on and any walking hazards in your area. Parking lots, pavement, and walkways should be in good order without debris or other tripping hazards. Indoor spaces should have appropriate lighting and handrails as necessary. Flooring should be secure: no tears in carpets or missing pieces of tile or linoleum that someone could trip over. Clear warnings should be given to let guests know of the danger.

Celebrating Weddings

Weddings are a time of joy and new beginnings. Whether the ceremony and celebration is a small and intimate affair or a large and lively event, the wedding venue is responsible for keeping the premises safe for guests. Do not let a venue’s negligence spoil a family memory.

Many vendors can be involved in a wedding celebration, and as in many instances when multiple parties are involved, each will try to shift blame to someone else. An Atlanta slip and fall lawyer can help keep your claim on track while others are asking questions and assigning blame. Was a slip and fall caused by the florist dripping water on the floor? How about the caterer spilling lemonade? Whose staff should have cleaned up the mess or made the area safe again? Did the venue maintenance staff fail to light the halls and walkways properly? Do not let your claim get tied up in someone else’s blame game. Gilormo Injury Law can navigate the complexities of a slip and fall case and hold the responsible parties liable for the injury they caused.
