Alabama slip and fall attorney Morris Lilienthal represented our client who was injured while a customer at a national retail store. While shopping at the store the plaintiff tripped over an object extending from underneath a display causing our client to fall. As a result of this accident, our client suffered severe injuries to her shoulder and elbow, which required surgery and continuous medical treatment. The plaintiff was seeking damages for her medical bills, loss wages, pain and suffering and mental anguish.
The area of the law that includes slip (trip) and fall accidents is known as premises liability. Under Alabama law a store owner has a duty to keep its premises in a reasonably safe condition for business invitees. In this case, it was our allegation that the store owner failed to keep its premises in a reasonably safe condition by allowing this object to protrude into the walkway. We are pleased that we could reach a fair and just confidential settlement for our deserving client.
