Premise Liability (Slip and Fall Accidents)

Premise Liability cases arise when a property owner fails to maintain their property or warn visitors of hazards.If you get hurt and sustain injuries on public or private property due to a property owner’s failure to maintain their property or fix a known defective and dangerous condition, you may have cause to file a personal injury claim and seek fair compensation, including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering along with other damages you may suffer. Attorneys at ReidGoodwin, PLC, in Richmond, VA, are experienced with helping injured people deal with Premises Liability issues.

Typical claims for “slip and fall” accidents occur when the property owners fail to keep their premises safe. Injuries may happen because walkways or stairs are not properly maintained or kept clear of debris, snow, ice and other hazards. Uneven pavement, a loose rug or turned-up corner of a mat, unmarked slippery floors and other problems can result in a slip, trip or fall causing injuries.

Property owners, renters and people who lease a location for temporary purposes have a responsibility to inspect and keep those premises safe for others who may use, pass by or travel through that area. This duty includes keeping shelved merchandise in good order, so items do not fall and hurt someone. Construction sites are particularly dangerous locations, as workers and others can be injured due to unsafe equipment, objects falling from heights, ground level debris and other hazards.
