Premises Liability

Tenacious Representation in Virginia Premises Liability Claims

Charlottesville slip and fall attorney aggressively pursues compensation for injured clients

Under Virginia premises liability law, those who own, rent or manage commercial and residential property have a duty to ensure their buildings and grounds do not pose risks to others’ safety and good health. Their failure to do so — or to inform you of known hazards — may give you the right to file a lawsuit for damages if you have been harmed because of their negligence. The Law Office of David M. Erwin defends the rights of plaintiffs in premises liability lawsuits. I build strong cases for clients by:

  • Photographing the scene of your accident and preserving evidence.
  • Consulting medical professionals to verify the extent of your injuries and the cost of recovery
  • Researching whether anyone else has been injured in the same location, or if anyone has previously complained about the property’s condition

I employ investigators to ensure you receive the maximum compensation possible, and I do not rest unless I am certain I have unearthed any factors that may be beneficial to the outcome of your case.

Who can sue

Regardless of whether you were visiting a friend’s home for a party or in some cases trespassing on someone else’s land, you may have the right to pursue damages for your injuries. I can meet with you to discuss the circumstances surrounding your accident and evaluate whether you are likely to receive a favorable verdict or settlement by pressing the matter. If so, I can explain what steps are next in this process. I have helped clients pursue compensation for accidents resulting from:

  • Unsafe walkways
  • Snow and ice
  • Poor retail store maintenance
  • Unsafe structures
  • Deck and balcony collapses
  • Falling objects
  • Falling ceilings
  • Wet floors
  • Unstable floors
  • Dog bites
