West Virginia Premises Liability Attorney
Defining Premises Liability Law in West Virginia
"Premises" refers to property, which includes land and buildings together. The law concerning premises liability makes a landowner responsible when a person suffers serious injuries while on their premises. In premises liability cases, an attorney will need to show:
- Who is the owner of the premises
- That the victim was an "invitee" to the property as a visitor or to conduct business with the owner or possessor
- That the injury was caused by negligence of other wrongful act the owner should have cared for, or minimally, warned against
The last point can include a situation where a third party commits a wrongful act but the owner is held liable for not ensuring safe conditions. An example might be a poorly lighted parking lot where a third party assaults the victim. There are many, many different types of premises liability. If you or a loved one has been harmed on the property of another, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation from the negligent parties.
