Roanoke Premises Liability Lawyers
Helping Our Clients Obtain Needed Compensation Since 1979
When you visit someone’s home or business, you expect to feel reasonably safe while there. Unfortunately, there are some instances where your safety is put in jeopardy because someone did not exercise reasonable caution or care. If you were injured because of a property owner’s negligence, let the Roanoke premises liability lawyers at Kalfus & Nachman PC help you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
When Is a Property Owner Liable?
Not all property injuries are the fault of a property owner. You are not likely to obtain a favorable settlement if your injuries were caused because you acted willfully negligent or irresponsible. However, if there were obvious problems that a property owner neglected to address, and those problems were directly responsible for your injuries, you may have a case. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, we can help you plan effectively to determine if you have a case.
Some instances of premises liability could include:
- Icy sidewalks that cause you to slip
- Slippery floors
- Sharp surfaces that result in a cut
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate security
- Lack of proper warning signage
- Lack of fencing around dangerous areas
There are many other instances of premises liability, so it is crucial that you work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you assess your situation and bring a lawsuit to obtain the necessary compensation for your injuries.
Virginia’s Contributory Negligence Laws
In Virginia, the at-fault party must be 100 percent responsible for the injuries sustained by the victim, otherwise, the victim has no case. This means that when you bring a lawsuit against an insurer or property owner, their goal will be to blame you for even a small portion of the damages in order to avoid paying a settlement. These cases are difficult, which is why adequate planning and preparation is crucial to securing a favorable outcome for your case.
Kalfus & Nachman PC can help you prove that:
- The property owner ignored a hazard on their premises
- They could have reasonably fixed the hazard
- You were injured directly as a result
