Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe. If you were injured because a property owner knew (or should have known) about a dangerous condition and failed to take timely action to correct it, you may have the basis for a lawsuit.
At the law firm of GBSR Attorneys we handle premises liability cases throughout southwest Virginia. For our clients’ convenience, we have offices in Roanoke and Smith Mountain Lake. We understand the nuances of premises liability law, and our experienced Roanoke slip-and-fall accident attorneys work with accident reconstruction specialists and highly regarded health care professionals to strengthen our cases.
Slip-and-fall cases may involve:
Spilled liquids or wet floors
Icy steps or walkways
Debris in aisles
Other dangerous property conditions
In addition to medical costs and lost wages, we can potentially seek compensation for your pain and suffering, emotional distress and other damages. In cases where the defendant’s conduct is deemed particularly egregious or outrageously careless, you may be awarded punitive damages on top of any compensatory damages.
Facing the large insurance companies and their teams of lawyers requires substantial resources. GBSR Attorneys is the largest law firm in Franklin County. We have established a reputation as a law firm that is always prepared to go to court if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiations. Our strong track record in this area allows us to negotiate from a position of strength.
