Virginia Premises Liability Lawyers

Were You Hurt on Someone’s Property?

Under Virginia law, property owners have a duty to inspect their properties for obvious defects and to either fix those defects or warn guests of the dangers posed by them. Often, property owners fail to act in accordance with this responsibility, which can result in serious injuries to guests and others lawfully on their property.

If you were injured due to unsafe conditions on someone else’s property—whether it was private property or a public space—you may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages. Though many people are hesitant to pursue these types of personal injury cases, damages incurred in premises liability cases can be extensive. Financial recovery can help you get the crucial medical care you need. It can also assist with lost income/wages from time taken off work to receive this medical treatment. If your injuries prevent you from returning to work temporarily or permanently, you may be entitled to receive compensation for reduced or lost earning ability.

Premises liability law is highly complex and cases involving premises liability law require the oversight of a firm with serious experience and ability.
