Chesapeake, Virginia Premises Liability Attorney

There are many different properties you may enter throughout the week. When you walk into a grocery store or a gas station, you are protected under premises liability laws should an accident occur.

If you are injured in such an accident, it’s important to speak with a Chesapeake, VA premises liability attorney from Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C.

What is Premises Liability?

Property owners owe anyone who enters their property a duty of care to maintain safe conditions. When they neglect to do so, accidents can occur. Property owners are not just grocery stores and gas stations, they also include commercial property owners, government property operators, and private property owners. Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C., often handles premises liability cases such as:

  • Swimming pool or hot tub incidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Retail store liability
  • Dog bite incidents
  • Inadequate property maintenance
  • Restaurant liability
  • Negligent or inadequate security
  • Attractive nuisance cases

This is not an exhaustive list as there is a range of ways that property owners can be negligent and cause harm to visitors.

Injuries From Premises Liability Accidents

Some injuries can be minor after an accident, which is why many people fail to take the proper steps in the immediate aftermath. Always seek medical treatment even if you feel fine. There are many different injuries that you can suffer from a premises liability accident including:

  • Back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocated bones
  • Severe strains or sprains
  • Open head wounds

While some injuries can be resolved over the span of a few months, others may require years of medical treatment. Property owners may have insurance coverage to provide relief for some of your expenses, but they will often try to deny or lower your claim.
