When Do You Need a West Virginia Premises Liability Lawyer?

When you visit a public building or business, such as a grocery store, restaurant, or government office, you expect the property to be safe and well-maintained. The owners and managers of the building would certainly know better than you about any hazards on the property, and you assume that they will let you know if some hidden danger is present that could cause you serious injury.

However, property owners aren’t always this mindful of their duties to keep visitors and customers safe, and a moment of lax supervision can result in a lifelong disabling injury for some victims.

What Is Premises Liability?

When you’ve been invited onto someone else’s property, either implicitly as a customer or explicitly as a social guest, the business or property owner has a duty to you to ensure that the property is reasonably safe. This might mean that the owner must inspect the property from time to time to remedy any dangerous conditions that a customer or guest might not expect or notice, such as a slippery, clear puddle of liquid, or a damaged stair.

If the property owner learns of a hazard or would have learned of it by regularly inspecting the property, and you are injured because the owner didn’t take steps to fix it in a reasonable time, then the owner could be liable for your injuries. This means they may owe you money for your expenses and pain and suffering.

A West Virginia premises liability attorney at Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson in Martinsburg can evaluate your case to determine if the property owner was negligent or otherwise responsible for your injury. If so, we can fight for the money damages you need to pay your medical bills, recover from lost work time, and heal physically and financially.
