Dothan Slip & Fall Attorney
Who is responsible for a slip & fall accident?
When somebody is injured in a slip and fall accident, it is common to assume that nobody is at fault but the person who fell. While some falls are the result of the accident victim's own clumsiness or recklessness, there are cases when another person is responsible. If it can be proven that your fall was caused by hazardous conditions such as a slippery floor, dim lighting, a cluttered walkway or uneven stair steps, you may have grounds for legal action against the owner of the property where your accident took place.
About Premises Liability in Alabama
Slip and fall personal injury claims depend on the legal principle of "premises liability." Under premises liability, a property owner can be held legally liable for accidents occurring on the property in certain circumstances. Provided that the owner or the person responsible for the premises knew-or reasonably
should have known-about the hazardous conditions yet failed to take precaution to safeguard against accidents, he or she may be held responsible for the accident.
If your accident could have been prevented by cleaning the floor, clearing away clutter, fixing a crack in the sidewalk or even posting a warning sign, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injury. A Dothan injury lawyer from Morris, Cary, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC can meet with you to review the evidence to determine whether you have a case.
