Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and Fall Attorneys in Mobile
When an individual sustains a slip-and-fall injury, he or she can bring a premises liability claim. This means that someone in charge of the premises — a property owner or manager, for example — should have known about the hazard that caused the injury or should have warned people about the dangerous conditions.Victims of slip-and-fall accidents bear numerous legal burdens when pursuing compensation for their injuries, not least of which is the responsibility to prove that a hazard existed and that it caused the accident.
