What Is A Premises Liability Claim?
In Virginia, property owners have a duty to keep their property reasonably safe for guests. They must warn guests if a dangerous condition exists on the property. If they fail in their duty and a guest is injured, the guest may have a premises liability claim against the owner. For example, you slip on an icy step at your apartment building or you trip and fall on a rug at a store.
Although this sounds straightforward, proving a premises liability claim can be quite complicated. You must show that the owner owed you a legal duty and prove that their negligence resulted in your injury. You need a skilled lawyer to help you navigate the many aspects of proving this type of case. At CraigWilliams, PLC, we have experience dealing with many different types of premises liability claims in the Louisa County area. We are practiced trial attorneys who aren’t afraid to fight for the compensation you deserve.
Where Do Premises Liability Accidents Happen?
These accidents can happen anywhere. The common example most people hear about is slipping and falling on a wet floor at a supermarket. Falls are a common premises liability accident. Falling objects also cause injuries. For example, improperly stacked merchandise at a store could fall onto customers, resulting in a head injury. You can have a claim on private property, as well, including your own. Landlords generally have a duty to keep your property well maintained.
If you are injured on government property, such as a city park, be aware that these claims are much more difficult to pursue because of government immunity laws. That means you cannot sue the government without their consent. You can still bring your suit against a city in Virginia, or the state, but you must give notice of your lawsuit within special time limits. Contact our office right away to make sure you bring your claim in time.
