Suffering an injury on someone else's property — commercial, residential, public or government property because of improper maintenance, or a failure to warn of possible dangers — is known as "premises liability."
Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall injuries can happen almost anywhere. Even injuries in your own home or apartment can fall into this category if your landlord was negligent. Larger establishments such as casinos, shopping malls, hotels, public buildings or other places of business can be held liable if you are injured on a malfunctioning escalator or elevator, for example. Premises liability can also apply if you are hurt on the job.

Suffering an injury in a sidewalk accident, crosswalk accident or on a slick floor due to owner oversight may entitle you to compensation for your medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.


Our goal is to get you as much as possible as quickly as possible. But, if those responsible are unreasonable, our experienced Huntsville premises liability/slip and fall attorneys will fight in court for the compensation and financial support that can return your life to normal. This determination for justice for our clients has made our firm a trusted name in Alabama personal injury law since 1979.

Contingency Fee

Most cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will never be asked to pay us anything out of pocket. We will be paid based on what we recover for you, from the responsible parties. There is no attorney fee unless we win your case, so we are determined to secure the maximum compensation for you.

Verdicts & Settlements

  • $251,000 – Along with co-counsel in Mississippi, the firm obtained this significant jury verdict for our client injured in a slip and fall at a casino restaurant. Our client sustained neck and shoulder injuries which required surgery when he slipped and fell in a spill in the restaurant. The jury found that the casino was liable for failing to properly remedy the spill.

  • $953,000 – Our client sustained disabling neck and shoulder injuries when he fell on the premises of a business while making a delivery. The firm was able to recover significant workers' compensation benefits from the employer's insurance carrier, as well as money for physical pain and permanent injuries from the business who failed to maintain safe access to the location where the fall occurred.
