It is the responsibility of property owners and managers to make sure their premises are free of any potential hazards. Slip and fall accidents are among the most common premises liability accidents, and lead to thousands of serious injuries every year.
At a store, at a pool, or even walking on a public sidewalk, the potential for a slip and fall accident is present. Common sense, such as not running at a pool, is often helpful in avoiding these accidents, but even the most cautious among us cannot avoid unforeseen dangers. When you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have a legal right to seek compensation for your injuries. West Virginia personal injury attorney Jim Leach is here to help ensure you are fully compensated, and able to recover from your injuries.
