Requirement to Maintain the Property
In Alabama, the person who is in control of a property has a duty to maintain it in such a way that you are not foreseeably injured. That may include a property owner, tenant, contractor, manager, company, nursing home, school, or government entity. In determining who may be liable for your injuries, the following questions may be considered:
- Who owns the property?
- Was someone leasing the property for residential or commercial purposes?
- Was the property under construction?
- Did the person in control of the property fail to reasonably maintain it?
- Was a warning posted about the hazard that caused your injuries?
- Did you have permission to enter the property?
- Did the hazard on the property actually cause all of your injuries?
- Did the owner or operator know, or should they have known, about the hazard that caused your injuries?
- Did you have financial losses that were the direct result of injuries caused by the hazard?
It can be difficult to prove that someone knew or should have known that a hazard existed, and that he or she had a duty to fix that hazard. You must also show that your injuries were caused by the hazard and that you have experienced a financial loss as a result of those injuries. The Birmingham personal injury lawyers at Belt & Bruner, P.C. have the experience and knowledge to help you obtain compensation for your injuries.
