Slip and Fall Accident Attorney

Slip and Fall Accident Attorney in Virginia & Kentucky

People who own property or are responsible for the property are accountable when an accident or loss occurs on that property and someone sustains an injury as a result of conditions related to the property. Premises liability applies to any situation including a slip and fall that occurs because of a property owner’s negligence. This can occur in a residential or commercial situation as well as can happen both indoors and outdoors. Premise stands for the building area and its surrounding grounds. Liability is defined as debts or monetary obligations associated with an accident that occurs on said premise because of negligence from someone considered responsible for that area.

The injured person can be anyone on the property, whether an employee, client, visitor, guest, or in some instances, even a trespasser. Premises liability accidents are caused by environmental hazards, unsafe conditions, hazardous conditions and other issues. A slip and fall accident attorney can investigate an accident to determine liability and the cause of the damages outlined in a premise’s liability lawsuit.

Understanding Premises Liability Claims

Slip and falls and other claims happen from incidents that occur at restaurants, hotels, sports arenas, roadways such as sidewalks, in parking lots or garages, malls, shopping centers, retail stores, apartment complexes, single family homes, amusement parks and more locales. Property owners have the responsibility to provide a safe environment for anyone visiting or even setting foot on the property. If you or a loved one feel that an injury occurred because of a property owner’s negligence, you’re eligible for compensation. You will need representation from a slip and fall accident attorney to represent you while you take the necessary time to heal. You can seek compensation for lost wages or lost earning capacity, medical bills, ongoing medical costs, rehabilitation costs and more.
