Was The Property Owner Liable?
Slip-and-fall injuries are notoriously complex to pursue. Depending on the accident, the property owner, business owner or even the city could be liable. If fault lies with the property owner, you must prove that he or she either caused, was aware of, or should have been reasonably aware of the dangerous or hazardous condition on the property that caused your injury.
Alabama uses contributory negligence to determine liability in personal injury lawsuits. This means that, unless the property owner maintains 100 percent of the liability for the accident, you may be unable to recover compensation for your injuries.
