Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer Huntsville
Premises liability arises when you are injured on someone else’s property, such as at the home of a neighbor, the local supermarket, or even a local park, as a result of hazardous conditions ranging from slippery floors, to defective machinery or other hidden dangers.
Some of the most common causes of injuries include:
Floors and walkways that are slippery, cracked or unevenly surfaced, poorly lit, or littered with debris.
Malfunctioning equipment, ranging from smoke detectors and railings to exposed wires and faulty elevators.
Inadequate security precautions, such as broken locks, insufficient access restriction, and a lack of visible supervision, can enable criminals to prey upon guests or visitors.
When you visit somebody else’s property, what responsibilities does the property owner have regarding your safety?
Property owners and managers should:
Inspect and monitor the property for any dangerous conditions, which may injure a visitor or guest.
Repair and/or eliminate the dangerous conditions as soon as possible.
Post warnings which put visitors and guests on notice about any existing dangerous conditions.
Our Huntsville slip and fall accident law firm holds property owners and businesses responsible when they've failed to keep their property safe for visitors and failed to warn visitors of all possible danger.
