Unclean or poorly maintained properties can pose a risk to visitors, potentially resulting in serious accidents that can cause long-term disability. If you’re the victim of a slip and fall accident, the West Virginia law firm of Jim Leach, L.C., can fight for your rights against the negligent property owner.

Slip and fall accidents can cause many kinds of injuries. Some of the most common include:

One of the likeliest injuries a slip and fall victim might experience is a broken hand or a broken wrist due to instinctively reaching out to break the fall. Older victims are also more likely to experience hip fracture in these kinds of accidents.

What might seem like a fairly minor fall could be more severe than you initially think. Because some symptoms may not present for several hours or even days after a slip and fall accident, it’s important to seek medical care immediately.

Slip and fall accidents are part of premises liability law. If you incurred injuries because of poor conditions in or on a property, it’s important to make note of potentially hazardous conditions, such as floors and other surfaces that are:

  • Uneven
  • Wet
  • Slippery
  • Cracked
  • Broken
