Premises Liability Injuries

All property owners have a responsibility of safety to those that enter their premises. This requires private and commercial property owners assume a duty of ordinary care that anyone who is invited (or an invitation is implied) to enter their property is kept safe. When poor maintenance, lack of security or other factors cause an injury to a visitor, the property owner may be liable for the injuries. If you have sustained an injury due to unsafe conditions at a business or on private land in Alabama, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim.

Most premises liability claims are covered under homeowner or business liability insurance. If you trip and fracture a bone due to an unlevel walkway at an acquaintance’s home, their home insurance may cover your medical bills and other costs. The same is true of businesses. When a slippery floor or sidewalk causes a slip and fall injury, the business may be liable, and their insurance may pay for the claim.

Types of Premises Injuries

It is not just slip and fall injuries that are covered by premises liability laws. Many unsafe conditions can occur that can put you at risk of injury, especially on commercial or business properties. Poor security can lead to criminal attacks, rapes and even shootings that can cause injuries or death. Construction issues with stairs, decks and balconies can cause serious injuries. Dwayne L. Brown handles many types of premises liability injury lawsuits in Alabama, including:

  • Apartment/Hotel Rapes or Attacks
  • Assaults and Shootings
  • Balcony or Deck Collapses
  • Falling Merchandise
  • Fires in Apartments or Hotels
  • Inadequate Building or Apartment Security
  • Pit Bull and Dog Attacks
  • Slip and Fall Injuries

Premises liability claims are often more complex than just contacting the property owner’s insurance company. To ensure your claim is taken seriously and all possible compensation is granted, contact Dwayne L. Brown at his Montgomery office to discuss your case.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    Michael L.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
