If you are injured on another person’s property due to a dangerous or unsafe condition the owner caused, was aware of, or should have been aware of, you may have a valid claim for premises liability. These cases are commonly referred to as a trip, slip, and fall accident. Typical trip, slip, and fall accidents may result from:
- Ice or snow accumulation
- Inadequate lighting
- Spilled food or drink in a restaurant or store
- Torn, raised or worn carpeting
- Obstructions, such as electrical cords
- Elevator injuries
- Negligent security
If you have been seriously injured from a trip, slip, or fall, the attorneys at Hare Wynn can help you. We represent people throughout Alabama and Arkansas from our offices in Birmingham and Little Rock.
Individuals who have sustained injury as a result of a fall or other accident due to the negligence of storekeepers, shopping centers, and other owners of public areas can recover for their injuries in certain circumstances. In order to prevail in such cases, it is necessary we establish the condition of the premises was “unreasonably dangerous” and the owner or occupier was aware or should have been aware of the condition prior to the plaintiff’s injury. You have a duty to watch where you are going and understand things may fall or spill onto walking surfaces, but the property owner also has a duty to keep the property reasonably safe.
