Many people are unaware that there are laws pertaining to injuries that happen on someone else’s property. That area of the law is known as premises liability. Everyone from your grocer, your friend, your local coffee shop owner, and your employer must ensure that all who enter their respective properties are safe from injury. If they fail in that duty and you’re injured as a result, you can file a personal injury claim against them. This claim is meant to compensate you for the injuries you’ve suffered and the monetary and non-monetary ways your accident has affected your life.
Filing such a claim is seldom easy or simple, and people don’t like to be sued. many state laws, like Virginia’s, often favor the property owner rather than the injured guest. In determining whether or not you have a meritorious premises liability case, you should consult a personal injury attorney who is experienced in liability cases, such as the attorneys at The Halperin Law Center, to assist you with your case.
