West Virginia attorneys who know premises liability law

Property owners in West Virginia who don't maintain their premises can see the value of their property decline. Moreover, they could face economic losses through other means. For instance, if someone gets injured while on the property, the victim could pursue compensation for their injury-related damages by filing a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner. This is true for homeowners as well as for people and companies that own commercial properties.

In addition to property owners having an obligation to maintain the safety of their property, a business owner that leases property must also take reasonable steps to ensure safety. In a grocery store or any other retail store, for example, business owners should take the steps necessary to prevent a customer from slipping and falling due to a wet floor or other dangerous property condition.

But slips and falls are not the only way that people can suffer an injury while in a store or other commercial property. Falling objects are another kind of danger, and so, too, is the possibility that another person will do something to harm someone on the property. In either case, the property owner or tenant may be responsible for the resulting injuries and damages.

The law firm of James F. Humphreys & Associates represents victims who suffer injuries because of property owners' failure to keep their premises in safe conditions. The website for our Charleston-based firm has some helpful information about premises liability law and how we pursue compensation for injured people and their families.

Accidents can happen anywhere, but when those accidents are caused by a dangerous condition on someone else's property, the owner or property tenant may be legally liable for the consequences of that accident. Our experienced personal injury attorneys diligently work to help these negligent individuals' victims recoup their losses and get back to normal life.
