Charleston Attorneys for Slips, Trips & Falls
Were You Injured on Someone Else’s Property?
What goes up always comes down, but not even the universal force of gravity is a good excuse for a negligent property owner when you become injured by a slip, trip, or fall on their premises. Accidents happen, and they can happen anywhere for a number of reasons. Slips, trips, and falls are no exception, especially because anyone can be at risk when a property owner is negligent in the upkeep of floors, hand railings, stairs, and other features.
The attorneys of Bailess Smith PLLC can support your claim if you were injured after falling on someone’s property. Premises liability laws in West Virginia say it’s the owner’s responsibility to keep their property in a safe condition at all times to avoid injury to other parties for incidents like slips, trips, and falls.
Unsafe conditions that can lead to these types of personal injury claims include:
- Wet floors
- Uneven pavement
- Loose railings
- Lack of warning signage
- Torn carpeting
- Illegal or unapproved building modifications
