When someone slips and falls on a residential or commercial property belonging to someone else, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries if the owner’s negligence contributed to your accident

Are Slip and Fall Cases Hard to Win?

In order to win a slip and fall case, you must be able to provide proof that the claims you are making are true. However, not every claim goes to trial. Some cases are able to settle prior to going to court.

How Do You Prove Negligence in a Slip and Fall Claim?

Slip and fall cases hinge on two questions:

(1) Did the property owner fail to take reasonable steps to prevent accidents?

(2) Did the failure to keep the property safe cause your injury?

The law places another hurdle in your path with the statute of limitations, which is two years in most cases. If your slip and fall case is not started within two years of the date of your accident, you will not be able to recover damages. Our Phenix City slip & fall accident lawyers can help you gather evidence and thoroughly investigate your accident to establish fault.

Challenges Posed by Alabama Law for Slip & Fall Accident Cases

The rules for attributing liability in slip and fall accidents vary from state to state. Unlike most states, Alabama uses a “contributory negligence” rule, which requires that the property owner was completely responsible for the accident. If the property owner’s insurance company can show that you bear some responsibility for your accident, you may not be able to recover compensation.

The other side may try to pin the blame on you by asserting that:

  • You were distracted and not paying attention while walking
  • Your footwear was not appropriate or unsafe
  • Signs were posted or the dangerous area was roped off
  • You were in an area where visitors are not permitted
  • The dangerous condition was obvious and steps were taken to prevent accidents
