Birmingham Slip & Fall

Owning or renting property in Alabama is a significant responsibility, especially when that space is open to guests or the public. Neglecting that responsibility can lead to adverse conditions that make the environment unsafe, which could result in someone getting injured. A simple fall on a wet spot or rough part of a parking lot can end up meaning thousands of dollars in medical bills, missed work, and possibly even permanent aches and pains.

At Morgan & Morgan, our slip and fall team in Birmingham, Alabama, understands how serious this type of injury can be. We know whom should be held accountable and will try to compel them to compensate you for your injuries. Fill out our free case evaluation form to learn more today.

The Duty of Care for Property Owners in Alabama

Alabama generally practices a system of reasonable care, meaning the owner or tenant (occupier) is responsible for their property. However, the Alabama Supreme Court defines this duty so that if warning is given for dangerous properties and can be exercised with ordinary care, that warning diminishes an occupier’s liability.

This responsibility is extended primarily to invitees, or individuals the occupier allows onto the property for business or other purposes, such as if the property is open to the public. Licensees or trespassers, who are on the property for their own purposes or illegally, have few protections under the law from danger caused by the occupier.

The 'Attractive Nuisance Doctrine'

Children who are injured on another’s property, even while trespassing, may still have the right to receive compensation under the “attractive nuisance doctrine," which is still followed in Alabama.

This rule determines that a property occupier may be liable for an injury to a trespassing child if:

  • The occupier knew, or should have known, that children were likely to be present near the property
  • The occupier knew or should have known that there was a condition on the property that could cause harm to those children
  • The cost or burden of alleviating that danger is slight compared with the potential harm
  • The occupier fails to take reasonable steps to alleviate that danger and a child is injured as a result
