Falls Are Common
Falls are common in hospitals, restaurants, supermarkets, grocery stores, parking lots, home improvement centers, hotels, apartments, malls, stores, shops, theaters, and other public places.
Most slip and fall accidents do not involve serious injuries, but those that do can be devastating for the people involved. Hospital bills, lost wages from missed work, and mental anguish are just a few of the long-term effects of slip and fall accidents. An experienced slip and fall attorney can help injured people recover the compensation to which they may be entitled.
Slip and Fall Lawsuits Can be Complicated
Not everyone injured in slip and fall accidents may take legal action to seek compensation for their injuries. The condition which caused the accident or injury and whether the person responsible for it knew or should have known of the hazard is a major factor in determining whether a lawsuit can be brought.
Sometimes the slip and fall accident is due to a spill that hasn't been marked by a wet floor sign. Other times, it may have arisen from a defect caused by the construction or maintenance of the area where the fall occurred.
If you or a family member was injured in a slip and fall accident, keep in mind that Alabama has a two-year statute of limitations. This means that a personal injury lawsuit must be brought within two years of the date of the accident or injury. We can help. Contact us today for a free consultation.
