It’s an unfortunate truth that a trip to the neighborhood grocery store or a walk around the block can have tragic consequences when property owners fail to exercise their proper duty of care. A store manager who neglects to clean up a spill quickly or a homeowner who refuses to address a broken sidewalk in front of their house can be held liable in civil court if innocent individuals are injured as a result of their negligence. If you were injured on another person’s property because of the property owner’s carelessness, you should contact a dedicated Alabama slip and fall attorney as soon as possible.

Broken Bones, Back or Head Injuries?
Slip and fall accidents are part of a larger field of personal injury law involving premises liability litigation. Essentially, in a premises liability case you are asserting that a property owner’s failure to address a dangerous condition on their property (such as the previously mentioned broken sidewalk or spilled liquid) in a timely manner was directly responsible for an injury. In fact, a property owner can be held liable for an injury even if they didn’t know about the dangerous condition, as long a jury rules that given the timeframes involved, it is unreasonable that they were not aware of it. As an example, consider a landlord who fails to realize that the commercial property they have been leasing for decades contains asbestos: a landlord who was exercising her proper duty of care should have become aware of the asbestos long ago.
