When you are on someone else’s property, whether it’s a public venue or a private home, you have the right to expect a safe environment free of hazards. Alabama’s premises liability laws state that property owners have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of visitors and customers. If they fail to fulfill this duty and you suffer a slip and fall injury, a personal injury claim may be pursued with the help of a slip and fall lawyer. 

The decision to file a claim is often motivated by the consequences of a fall, which can cause life-altering injuries in a split second. In fact, the CDC reports that about 20% of falls result in injury. For this reason, Those Thumbs Up Guys® at Floyd Hunter Injury Law are dedicated to helping injured  and their families by pursuing claims against the responsible parties. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’ve suffered a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property.

5 Star Reviews Floyd Hunter Fights for You

Jeff Hunter did a great job for me. He was easy to talk to and was very honest about my case and what it would take to reach a good outcome for me. Jeff fought hard for as much money as he could get from the insurance company for me and we were able to settle my case. Jeff will always return your phone call or respond to your emails in a timely manner. I would hire Jeff again and would certainly recommend him if you have had a personal injury.

Jeff fought hard for me and my family, and we ended up receiving over $295,000.00 in a settlement. Without Jeff Hunter representing us, we could not have received such a great settlement. Jeff Hunter cares about his client, and wants to get them as much money as he can. I highly recommend Jeff Hunter if you need a personal injury attorney.

Do You Have a Case?

The information below may help you understand whether your case qualifies as a premises liability claim, but you can find out for sure by completing our simple online form.

Slips, trips, and falls are some of the most common accidents and can occur in a variety of settings, including wet or slippery floors, uneven surfaces, loose rugs or carpets, poor lighting, and cluttered walkways.

For example, a store injury could occur if a customer slips on a wet floor that was not properly marked with a warning sign. Similarly, a person may slip on ice outside of a store that was not properly cleared, sanded, or salted.

Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition and to address slip and fall hazards in a timely manner.

Some common injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents include sprains, strains, and other soft tissue injuries. Fractures are also common, especially among older adults. Many people suffer a broken hip or wrist after slipping and falling.

Head injuries are also a concern, as a person may hit their head on a hard surface after falling. These injuries can be serious and may require extensive medical treatment, including surgery, rehabilitation, and ongoing care.

In Alabama, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the property owner or another responsible party. This means that if you slipped on ice outside of a store on January 1, 2022, you would have until January 1, 2024, to file a premises liability claim.

Act quickly and consult with our experienced attorneys to ensure that your rights are protected and that you have the best chance of recovering compensation for your injuries.

What Compensation Can You Ask For?

While compensation will depend on the circumstances of your individual situation, there are a few types of damages that will be considered in most slip, trip, and fall cases. Explore the tabs below to understand what you could recover, then fill out our free case submission form to see what your claim is worth!

When people consider what financial losses they may recover with their claim, economic damages are usually the first to come to mind. Medical bills, lost wages, future accident-related expenses, and in the most tragic circumstances, funeral and burial expenses.

This type of compensation covers the “invisible” injuries that can result from a slip and fall accident: emotional distress or trauma, grief caused by the inability to participate in important activities and relationships, physical pain and discomfort, and even permanent personality changes.

Though they may only be applicable in the most extreme situations of unbelievable negligence (perhaps even malice) on the part of the property owner, punitive damages could also be included in the settlement.

Should You Accept an Offer From the Property Owner Without Representation?

We advise strongly against accepting an offer from a property manager or owner without consulting an attorney because you may be putting yourself at a significant disadvantage. 

Property owners or their insurance companies may try to settle quickly and for a low amount in order to limit their financial responsibility. This settlement would likely not account for all of your injuries, future medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages, though. By accepting a settlement offer without an attorney, you may also be releasing your right to pursue additional compensation in the future. Once you accept an offer and sign a release form, you may not be able to pursue further legal action. This can be particularly damaging if your injuries turn out to be more serious than you initially realized.

Working with a bodily injury attorney at Floyd Hunter Injury Law can help ensure that you receive a fair settlement that considers all of your injuries and even future damages. Don’t accept less than your suffering has entitled you to, and don’t take this burden on alone— seek reliable legal representation today.

What’s Next?

By submitting your case for review, you can begin the legal process today without paying a cent upfront.

After reviewing your case and determining you have a valid claim for recovering losses, our team will begin the process of collecting photographs, physician statements, eyewitness testimony, property records, and anything else that will help your case.

It should be noted that the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely it is that we can document the unsafe property conditions before the responsible party can hide this evidence.

With all of the different manipulation tactics used by insurance adjusters to underpay injury claims, you deserve to have the best legal defense fighting for your maximum settlement. We take care of negotiations while you take care of yourself in recovery.

Once a fair settlement offer is made, we’ll advise you of your rights and what option would most benefit you. If you decide to accept that settlement, we will continue working for you to be sure that the agreement is carried out promptly and as it was agreed to.

Slip and Fall FAQs

It’s highly recommended, though not legally required, to hire an attorney after a serious fall or other accident due to another individual’s irresponsible actions.

With the indispensable asset of a strong legal team behind you, you can be sure that you are meeting all of the legal deadlines, that you have an airtight case demonstrating the extent of harm done to you, and that all of the damages you should receive are being sought after in negotiations. 

The legal responsibility that property owners owe to their visitors is known as “premises liability” under the law. Property owners have a legal duty to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe, maintaining their property and removing any dangerous situations that could harm visitors.

When this responsibility, or “duty of care”, is breached and someone is injured as a result, the injured person may be able to pursue a premises liability claim to receive the deserved compensation for their injuries.

It certainly may be more difficult to recover damages if the negligent party does not have insurance, but an experienced premises liability attorney from our law office can help you examine the legal avenues available and decide on the best course of action.

Our attorneys do NOT charge fees upfront to take your case. We work with our clients on a contingency-fee basis, only charging if we are successful in your case. We also offer evaluations and consultations on your situation at absolutely no cost to you.

Our Millbrook and Montgomery premises liability lawyers take injury cases across the state. So, if you’ve been hurt in Alabama on someone’s dangerous property, it would benefit you to get in touch with us and find out if you could receive a slip and fall settlement in the amount of your damages.
