West Virginia Premises Liability and Slip and Fall Attorneys – Protecting Victims' Rights.
Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep any visitors safe while on their property. Premises liability injuries can be a result of uneven pavement, wet floors, icy sidewalks, falling objects, animal bites, fires and inadequate lighting. Often times, injuries are preventable and are a result of the negligence of another party. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, it is estimated that in 2004 alone, more than eight million people were injured in slip-and-fall accidents.
The slip and fall attorneys of The Masters Law Firm will aggressively represent you against the owners of private or commercial properties. We will go to trial if necessary to obtain the financial compensation you need to pay for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. If you have been injured at your workplace, enlisting in the assistance of an attorney will help you receive compensation above what simply worker’s compensation will take care of.
Premises liability can involve a multitude of complex legal issues that require the representation of an experienced attorney and law firm. For that reason, if you have been injured on another’s property through unsafe conditions, contact the Premises Liability Attorneys of The Masters Law Firm.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Property owners have a legal obligation to ensure that their properties are safe for human occupation and free of any unreasonably dangerous conditions that could cause bodily harm. If you suffer an injury while on the property of another party, it may be possible to file a premises liability lawsuit. It is important to note however, that it must be shown that your injury or the injury of a loved one was a result of the property owner or operator's negligent and reckless actions. Proving liability in a slip and fall accident can be difficult as all individuals have a responsibility to be mindful of their surroundings and aware of their actions.
At our West Virginia law firm, our slip and fall attorneys can help determine liability in your case. In order to litigate a premises liability suit successfully, it must be shown that the property owner or operator caused the dangerous surface to be underfoot; knew of it and failed to take action to eliminate the risk; or should have known of the dangerous surface if he or she was acting in a reasonable manner. If the surface that caused the slip and fall accident was temporary, it may be more difficult to prove liability. If you feel you have a valid slip and fall claim, the slip and fall attorneys at The Masters Law Firm have the experience and knowledge to exponentially improve your chances of obtaining a case victory.
The workplace can be a very dangerous environment. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a construction accident, coal mining accident, or industrial accident, the West Virginia-based premises liability attorneys from our West Virginia law firm will work tirelessly to see that your legal rights are protected.
Employers have an obligation to maintain a safe working environment for their employees. Our lawyers can help determine if the employer followed OSHA-mandated regulations, properly trained its employees, and actively worked to ensure the safety of employees. If it can be shown that your injury was the result of dangerous work conditions, it may be possible to obtain financial compensation for medical costs, rehabilitation costs, loss of wages (including future wages stemming from inhibited earning capacity), and pain and suffering. If a loved one has been killed in a workplace accident, out compassionate attorneys will file a wrongful death suit and work diligently to help ensure you obtain compensation for medical costs, funerary costs, loss of income, and emotion pain and suffering.
