Advocating For Injury Victims And Their Families
Our attorneys are committed to using the law to keep residents in communities throughout southwest Virginia safe. We aggressively pursue injury claims related to:
- Slip-and-fall accidents caused by wet, uneven, slippery or poorly-lit walking surfaces
- Injuries caused by loose ceiling tiles, unsecured merchandise on shelves or other falling hazards
- Slip, trip and fall accidents caused by loose carpeting, flooring tiles or unmarked obstacles in aisles or other walkways
Most slip-and-fall injuries heal after a few days. However, recovering from a serious accident may take years and may cost thousands of dollars to treat. If you or a loved one has suffered from a severe injury, our attorneys will defend your right to secure the compensation you deserve.
Securing Evidence Is Critical In Successfully Pursuing A Claim
A plaintiff has the burden of proving that the person responsible for the place where the fall occurred had either actual or constructive knowledge of the defective condition that caused the fall. Securing this evidence as soon after the fall as possible is critical to prevailing on a claim for injuries. For example, if the fall is caused by liquid on the floor, you must determine 1) the identify of the liquid; 2) how the liquid came to be on the floor; and 3) for how long the liquid has been on the floor.
Retention of an attorney who is equipped to immediately investigate the cause of your fall and take immediate action to secure relevant evidence can make the difference in being able to successfully recover damages for your injuries.
