Alabama Unsafe Building Lawyers

Under premises liability law, the owners or managers of a building are required to keep their facility reasonably safe to those who may visit the property. Owners are to inform visitors of any known danger as well, this is typically done with posted signage or caution tape. When property owners fail to keep their buildings safe or fail to warn others who may frequent the property of such dangers, serious injuries can take place.

Potential Dangers

Unsafe building injuries can occur in a large number of different circumstances. The key aspect linking them all together is the fact that the building manager or owner allowed an unsafe condition to exist on their property. If this condition in turn causes a person to suffer injury then the manager or owner can be held liable for the damages that their actions (or inaction) have caused.

Examples of unsafe conditions in Alabama buildings, but not limited to, includes:

  • Faulty Elevators
  • Broken Staircases
  • Uneven Stairs
  • Broken or Damaged Handrails
  • Holes in Flooring
  • Unsecured Overhead Objects
  • Objects Falling from Heights
  • Exposed Electrical Wiring
  • Faulty Escalators
  • Negligent Security
  • Negligent Stocking of Shelves

It should be noted that even abandoned buildings fall under premises liability law. While no manager or building supervisor is on site for an abandoned building, the site should be taped off and signage posted indicating the dangers that may exist within. If these measures are not taken and an unsuspecting person is injured by the conditions inside the building then the owner of the property can still be held liable for the accident.

Essentially, if a business owner or a building manager allows any unsafe condition to exist in their building and the condition causes a degree of injury then they can be held liable for the injuries caused. In a majority of unsafe building cases, the building in question is a store, apartment, or private property. Victims may be shoppers or merely visiting the building when they fall victim to an unsafe condition. Contact our law office today if you or someone close to you has been in an accident due to the negligence of another person in an unsafe building.
