Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys in Barboursville, WV
Our attorneys can answer your questions on slip and fall accidents
When it comes to slip and fall accidents, they may be due to someone else’s negligence, which means it can take some investigation to get to know whether compensation is in order. Slips, trips, and falls are the second main cause of reported injury in the United States.
If you were injured in a store or business, a public lot or a residence, owners have the responsibility to maintain premises that are hazard-free. You may be able to file a claim to recover your medical bills and other expenses.
The causes and conditions may affect your claim for damages
Property owners are responsible for keeping their property safe for public use. If you suffered a fall that resulted in an injury due to negligence, or experienced an injury in the workplace, you may be entitled to compensation. All companies, large and small, including governmental buildings, can be held liable for damages for not tending to hazardous conditions.
The attorneys at Bailey Legal Services handle:
- Common hazardous indoor conditions: exposed wires, wet floors, cracks or holes in flooring, failure to warn about unexpected changes in the height of flooring.
- Common hazardous exterior/outdoor conditions: potholes, cracks in the sidewalk, water or ice on walkways, poor lighting in public places.
Trips & falls can result in serious injury, while others may be at fault
When you fall, it may not be a matter of personal clumsiness—there could be a known or unknown obstacle that caused it; generally, something that might be corrected so that others may be safe. Call Bailey Legal Services to see if you may be entitled to compensation for your inconvenience and to make things right.
