Tenacious law firm pursues compensation for clients hurt on the property of others in the Beckley area
West Virginia law imposes certain obligations for property owners and businesses to protect guests from unsafe conditions on their premises. If a business or individual fails to exercise their legally required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Hewitt & Salvatore PLLC, our attorneys employ a tenacious, professional approach to help clients seek full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress and pain and suffering. We take on premises liability cases involving negligent property owners in the Beckley area and across West Virginia.
Informed West Virginia advisers evaluate the strength of your injury claim
In order for a property owner to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be shown to prove that you were legally on the property and that a dangerous condition on the premises caused your injury. In addition, generally at least one of the following must be true:
- The property owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
Depending on state law, a property owner or manager may owe a different standard of care to different classes of visitors, such as business visitors or social guests. The attorneys at Hewitt & Salvatore PLLC will pursue optimal recovery based on the specific facts of your case.
