Alabama Slip-and-Fall Lawyer
A fall can be dangerous, and when you’re injured through no fault of your own, you deserve compensation. When you’re in such a painful situation, an Alabama slip-and-fall attorney can help your case succeed.
We often encounter hazards in our daily lives, especially in buildings that are being renovated, older buildings, and even stores and coffee shops with wet floors. Typically, we’re able to avoid these things by watching out and being warned of hazards by the staff or owners of the property.
Sadly, in some cases, someone won’t meet his or her responsibility to warn you of the danger, and you’ll be left in pain and suffering from the damages that come with a slip-and-fall accident. When this happens, an Alabama slip-and-fall lawyer from the Henry Dailey Law Firm can help you prepare your claim for compensation.
Premises Liability Laws in Alabama
First, you’ll need to make sure your case proves that a property owner was at fault and you weren’t negligent. It’s not easy to prove who’s at fault for a slip-and-fall accident, but you’ll need to show that the owner failed in his or her duty to warn, which might include signs or barriers between you and the danger.
You’ll also need to prove that you weren’t negligent. Any negligence on your part could mean having your case dismissed completely. Alabama recognizes “pure contributory fault,” which means that if you were at fault for the accident to any degree, you’ll be unable to recover compensation.
Once you’ve gathered the appropriate evidence, you’ll also need to keep in mind that you’ll only have two years to file. Because this is so little time and because settling or filing a claim in court can be a long process, it’s likely best to act now to get the compensation you need. A slip-and-fall lawyer in Alabama can help you with every aspect of your case.
Compensation for Slip-and-Fall Accidents
Once we’ve gathered evidence that shows you weren’t at fault, we’ll focus on what you should receive for your accident. These damages, both financial and non-financial, should be fully accounted for so you can focus on your recovery—not on how you’ll pay your bills.
You’ll need to focus on both the financial losses you’ve suffered, which should include any bills or expenses you’ve incurred, and the non-economic damages. These include the emotional and mental toll an accident can take.
Your damages after an Alabama slip-and-fall injury might include any of the following:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
