The term premises liability is the legal term that is used when a person gets injured on another’s property or at a business. Oftentimes, these types of cases are referred to as slip-and-fall lawsuits.
If you’ve been injured at another person’s home or at a business establishment, you may have recourse to file a lawsuit.
Slip-and-fall lawsuits can be filed for any of the following instances of negligence on property owner’s part:
- Uneven flooring
- Wet and slippery walking surfaces
- Bad lighting
- Unsteady railings
- Poorly constructed or maintained stairs or ramps
- Unmarked obstacles
Our Alabama slip and fall lawyers will help you determine if your injury was sustained because of negligence. For instance, if the property was not well-maintained, had stairs or ramps that were not up to code, or obstacles that there weren’t hazard warnings around, you may be able to file a lawsuit. Also, premises liability cases can be filed if the property owner doesn’t secure the premises well enough, resulting in injury or assault. As a property owner, it is that person’s responsibility to keep the grounds and security of their establishment safe in all ways.
If you were injured on another’s property and think it may be due to negligence, please contact Long & Long today. Our Mobile, Alabama lawyers will evaluate your case for free and help you determine if you should move forward.
