Were You Injured Due To Unsafe Property Conditions?

At Hoover Law, PLLC in Barboursville, our lawyers are committed to advocating for individuals who have been hurt while on sidewalks, parking lots, public parks or private/business property where they should have been protected from harm.

Property owners in West Virginia are responsible for all accidents that occurred to other individuals while on his or her property. This area of law is known as premises liability. The case is strengthened if the owner knew of the hazard, which posed a risk to a reasonable person, and failed to take the necessary steps to fix or correct it.

Attorneys For Accidents Caused By Property Owner Negligence

These types of injuries can occur in any public place or shopping location, including parking lots, bars, restaurants, malls, hotels, parks, and other public property. Grocery stores are common culprits with slippery surfaces, a wide range of temperatures and surfaces, and potentially falling objects.

Our lawyers are also able to represent the interests of tenants and their visitors who have been injured as a result of negligence or disrepair by the landlord or property manager.

Many premises liability accidents are a result of disrepair, such as:

  • Wet floors
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Uneven steps or floors
  • Trips-and-falls, tripping hazards
  • Falling objects
  • Security issues
  • Maintenance issues
  • Unmarked steps down or up
  • Excessively hot surfaces
  • Dog bites

Many times, following an accident, the property owner may attempt to make a hasty deal with the injured individual to cover up the accident and avoid paying the damages owed to the person. It is important that you speak with a knowledgeable attorney before you make any deals. Some injuries may not evidence themselves for a period of time. When they do become a problem, if you have already made a deal, you will be stuck with any medical or repair bills that arise.

We know what needs to be done, and we take care of everything on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will not have to front any of the costs or expenses of the case, instead only paying a fee if you are awarded compensation.
