How Is A Slip-And-Fall Case Different From A Premises Liability Claim?

Alabama law states that property owners have a legal obligation to take measures to ensure that visitors on their property are kept reasonably safe from harm. Technically, a slip-and-fall accident is a type of premises liability case. Like the phrase implies, a slip-and-fall case typically involves injuries sustained when a person slips, trips and falls on ice, standing water or other safety hazards that could or should have been removed. Such cases are becoming increasingly difficult to settle or win in court, as judges and jurors place a great deal of personal responsibility on the injured party.

We are not a “slip-and-fall” accident law firm. We are a premises liability law firm. We handle any premises liability claims, including complex cases involving improper design, faulty construction, unsafe building conditions, insufficient security or defective equipment that results in injury accidents.

Examples of premises liability accidents can include:

  • Explosions
  • Fire and smoke injuries
  • Electrical shock
  • Falling materials, product or equipment
  • Wall and roof collapse
  • Improper installation or maintenance of overhead doors
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals or materials

Premises liability cases are complex because they require evidence that the building, structure or property was unsafe by design or construction. Often, these cases involve multiple parties of liability, including the design or architectural firm, the builder and the property management company, in addition to the property owner.

  • Court Says Routine Mammogram Is Not A Pre-Existing Condition

    Sometimes short-term health insurance companies claim that inconclusive diagnostic tests that occur before the date of the short term policy are pre-existing conditions. This illustrates how broadly these insurance companies will interpret the meaning of pre-existing condition. A recent Eleventh Circuit case (Jones v Golden Rule Insurance Company) illustrates this practice. Jones v Golden Rule […] Read More


  • Short-Term Insurance Plans Ruling Will Drive Up Costs and Lower Coverage Availability for the Sick
