PRACTICE AREAS

SLIP & FALL OR TRIP & FALL CLAIMS

Slip-and-fall accidents can cause serious, lasting injuries. Unfortunately,  unsafe premises leave nearly 10 million people a year injured in the United States, with particular hazard to the elderly. The attorney team at BRW has vast experience in these cases,  understanding the viability of a claim and what is needed to ensure your compensation.

Property owners have a duty under the law to insure their premises are safe for patrons, visitors and and employees.   Failure to maintain safe conditions can make a property owner liable   for the personal injuries caused by poor property management. Conditions to cause an accident often include liquid spills, uneven flooring or loose floorboards, unmarked steps, material defects, debris or insufficient lighting. 

Alabama premise liability law is complex and the degree of care owed by the property owner to others on the property varies depending on the situation. In addition, Alabama law provides several defenses to property owners against negligence claims. Thorough documentation of a premise liability claim is essential.

The BRW attorneys understand how best to recover compensation by considering all the ways your injury has impacted your life, from medical expenses to your future ability to work.
