Wherever you go, you should be able to expect that the property owner has made the property safe for visitors. Sometimes property owners do not maintain their property. When safety hazards are ignored, customers and other visitors are likely to suffer injuries. Slip and fall accidents occur when surfaces are wet due to a spill or ice. Trip and fall accidents are the result of uneven surfaces or objects lying on the ground. When a property owner has notice of a dangerous condition on their land and that condition causes an injury, the premises liability lawyers at Prim Law Firm, PLLC work to hold the property owner accountable.
Both slip and fall accidents and trip and fall injuries fall under the legal category of premises liability injuries. These accidents can happen anywhere, such as a warehouse, a construction site or a doctor’s office. Slip and fall injuries are extremely common in places like grocery stores where spills happen every day or in parking lots which can be icy. Trip and fall accidents are also common in stores where objects have fallen on the ground, or in other facilities with uneven carpeting or broken steps. Our injury lawyers work to prove that your accident was caused by negligence.
In West Virginia, every visitor to a property is entitled to a duty of reasonable care from the property owner or manager.
