Slip And Fall Injuries

Under Virginia law, property owners are responsible for the care and regular maintenance of their property. Oversight or, in some cases, complete disregard for safety leads to countless avoidable injuries every day. Most commonly, these injuries occur when someone slips, trips, or falls due to some form of hazard. If you can prove that your injury was caused by a property owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. In cases where serious, life-altering injuries were sustained, receiving some form of reparation is especially important.

Some Common Examples Of Hazards That Lead To Slips And Falls Include:

fa-

Slick surfaces or spills

fa-

Uneven pavement

fa-

Missing or broken stair railings

fa-

Insufficient or absent warning signs

fa-

Poor lighting

How to Determine Slip and Fall Liability

Owning premises (land and building together) requires ongoing maintenance and immediate action when a defect is discovered. Failing to repair a hazard or lacking awareness can have dangerous and deadly consequences. A slippery surface or a box falling off a faulty shelf can injure someone and result in traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord damage leading to paralysis.
Conducting an immediate investigation is vital and witness statements help us tell your story. We want to get to the scene with experts before the problem is repaired. Our fact-based approach can make a significant difference in getting the compensation you or family members deserve.
Proving negligence in a slip and fall case is not always an easy task. You will need the help of experienced premises liability attorneys. When bringing a suit against a property owner, the injured party must prove one of the following:
fa-

The owner negligently created a dangerous situation

fa-

The owner was aware of a dangerous situation but did not address it promptly

fa-

The owner was unaware of a dangerous situation due to insufficient inspection procedures
