Personal injury: Woman injured during doctor visit

Alabama residents should be able to visit public establishments without encountering hazards that can potentially cause them harm. Water leaks, inadequate lighting and objects left on floors are examples of hazards that can lead to very serious injuries. It is the responsibility of the property owner(s) to remove hazards and provide a reasonably safe environment for invitees and lawful visitors. However, what can be done when an individual suffers personal injury as the result of unsafe and dangerous conditions in a business or public place?

A woman in another state was allegedly injured due to a hazardous conditions in a medical center, and she has filed a lawsuit. The lawsuit said the woman went to the medical center for a doctor’s appointment. According to claims, she encountered water on the floor and a wet rug while walking to the elevator.

Allegedly, the dangerous and unsafe condition caused the woman to fall and hit her head and shoulder. She claims she suffered a concussion and facial cuts, as well as neck and spinal fractures. She accuses the defendants of negligence over claims that they allowed the dangerous condition to exist and failed to remedy the hazard. The plaintiff seeks monetary damages and all just relief.

In Alabama, property and business owners can be held liable when hazardous conditions on their property result in injuries to visitors. Those who suffer personal injury due to negligence can take matters into their own hands and file a lawsuit. A successful claim could result in a substantial monetary award that could be used to cover medical expenses and other financial losses.
