Assessing legal options after a slip-and-fall accident

Each year, many people in the Charleston area suffer injuries from slipping and falling. Whether the person just loses their footing or falls due to some kind of slippery substance or uneven flooring, serious injury can result from slip-and-fall accidents. When a slip-and-fall on someone else's property causes an injury that requires medical care, the victim may be unsure if they can pursue legal action against the property owner.

West Virginia woman brings lawsuit for icy slip-and-fall injury

The area of the law known as premises liability holds negligent property owners and possessors liable for the injuries and harm suffered by victims on their property. A West Virginia woman in a community about an hour south of the Kanawha County area recently brought a lawsuit for injuries she suffered during a fall in an icy parking lot. The woman asserts that she slipped on snow and ice in an elementary school parking lot, injuring her right knee. The victim is suing a local school board, accusing it of negligence in maintaining the parking lot. She asserts that the school board negligently failed to properly maintain the parking lot, keeping it clear of snow and ice, which caused her injury.
