Slip and Fall Claim
I was injured in a slip and fall while on someone else’s property. Do I have a claim?
In most cases you do have a claim, but you will need substantial evidence to prove that the owner of the property was indeed negligent. Attempting to pursue a claim on your own can be a challenge. That’s why we recommend that you seek the help of a qualified, experienced Virginia personal injury attorney.
Under premises liability law, the owner of a property has a responsibility to ensure that guests or visitors on their property are safe at all times. If a property owner has identified a dangerous condition, he/she is required to repair it or post appropriate warnings.
In order to win a slip-and-fall accident or any type of premises liability claim, it must be shown that the property owner was aware of the safety hazard and failed to fix the situation. This law applies to the state of Virginia. It must also be proven that the property owner’s negligence did lead to your injury. With the help of an attorney, an investigation will take place to include a review of the accident site, safety reports, video surveillance, and interviews with eyewitnesses.
