Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer in Mobile, Alabama
When an individual sustains a slip-and-fall injury, he or she can bring a premises liability claim. This means that someone in charge of the premises — a property owner or manager, for example — should have known about the hazard that caused the injury or should have warned people about the dangerous conditions. Victims of slip-and-fall accidents bear numerous legal burdens when pursuing compensation for their injuries, not least of which is the responsibility to prove that a hazard existed and that it caused the accident. If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, our law firm knows how to prove that a dangerous condition existed and caused your injury.
What Is A Slip & Fall Action?
A slip and fall action is a type of personal injury lawsuit filed by a plaintiff who has been injured by a slip and fall, usually on the defendant’s property. The plaintiff in slip and fall cases must usually show that the owner of the property had notice or knowledge of the condition, and failed to clean it up and rectify it within a reasonable amount of time. Additionally, if the plaintiff has knowingly encountered a hazard, then he or she may have trouble holding the defendant liable.
Slip-and-fall accidents frequently involve dangerous debris, spills and leaks from malfunctioning food and beverage machines resulting in wet floors and slippery floors. Other hazards, such as inadequate lighting, can also lead to slip-and-fall accidents. We can investigate your accident and work effectively to prove damages and recover compensation. We have even obtained compensation for clients injured on uneven lawns.
