A premises liability claim is the type of claim filed when a person is injured on the property of another. The property could be a business property or a private residence. Often these types of claims are referred to as “slip and fall” claims or “trip and fall” claims. Injuries resulting from a premises liability injury can range from mild to severe such as:
- Fractured hip
- Broken arm or leg
- Severe sprain
- Head injury
- Spinal cord damage
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Disc injuries
It is important to note that not all premises liability claims are successful or result in a monetary award. In Alabama four (4) main conditions must exist to qualify for a premises liability claim:
- The premises where the accident occurred must be in or contain a dangerous condition.
- The dangerous condition must cause an injury.
- The parties responsible for the property were aware of the dangerous condition or should be expected to know about it.
- The parties responsible for the property must have had a reasonable opportunity to repair the dangerous condition.
