Newport News Premises Liability Lawyers
Helping Clients Obtain the Maximum Compensation for Their Injuries
When visiting a home or a business, you expect not to be injured by unsafe conditions. Unfortunately, when a property owner fails to repair a dangerous condition or at least warn about its existence, people can suffer severe injuries. If you were hurt because someone failed to take proper care of their home or business, let the Newport News premises liability attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC help you obtain the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
When Is a Property Owner Liable?
Not all injuries sustained on a property are caused because its owner was negligent. For example, if you hit your head on a cabinet in someone’s home because you weren’t watching where you were going, it is unlikely that you will have a strong case. However, if you hit your head on a cabinet because the wood had rotted and broken off to leave a jagged corner jutting out, you may be able to show that the property owner was negligent in their duty.
Other premises liability concerns could include:
- Slippery floors that had no clear warning
- Icy sidewalks
- Malfunctioning fire safety equipment
- Lack of safety equipment
- Some crimes that occur on company premises
In any premises liability, you must be able to prove that the property owner could have reasonably fixed the dangerous condition and that you were injured as a direct result.
