Carr Allison’s Pryor and Townsley obtain summary judgment

POSTED JULY 21, 2022

Carr Allison attorneys Caroline Pryor and Alex Townsley of our Mobile (AL) office, recently won summary judgment for a retail client in a case where the plaintiff tripped on a gas pump island, sustaining a fractured shoulder. In support of the argument that the gas pump island was open and obvious under Alabama’s objective standard, the defense showed that nothing was blocking the plaintiff’s view of the pump island at the time of the accident and in the eight years before the accident no other patron had tripped over any gas pump island at this station. The Court agreed that the evidence presented demonstrated that the gas pump island was in no way hidden, veiled or obscured.
