Slip and fall accidents
While an insurance company might downplay the impact, a slip and fall can cause catastrophic injuries, from a shattered pelvis to a spinal cord injury to traumatic brain injury. Slip and fall accidents happen for many reasons. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents in Virginia include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Uneven surfaces
- Dangerous stairs
- Icy sidewalks
- Poor lighting or visibility
- Safety code violations
Weather conditions often play a significant factor. But negligence by business owners, managers, employees, property owners, homeowners and landlords also plays a role in many cases. People should be able to walk in a restaurant or shopping mall and not have to worry about slipping and falling and sustaining a serious injury.
The following are just a few common locations in Virginia where these accidents might occur:
- Parking lots
- Shopping malls
- Department stores

Premises Liability Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are perhaps the best-known type of premises liability claims, but this area of personal injury law covers a wide range. You may have a premises liability claim if you are assaulted by someone in a parking lot or if you are injured by a falling piece of merchandise at a department store. Laws exist to protect people from negligent behavior by property owners. These laws are grouped together under an area known as "premises liability" law.
Property owners and building managers have an obligation to keep their premises safe. That means keeping their property free of defects and hazards that could harm people. As a result, commercial property owners must conduct regular safety inspections, make repairs when necessary and post warning signs about potential hazards.
Generally, the following factors must be present to prove a premises liability case:
- The party responsible for the property created the condition.
- The condition was known but no steps were taken to correct it.
- Enough time had gone by for the responsible party to become aware of the condition that it should have been corrected.
When property owners fail to take proper steps to ensure safety, they put everyone at risk of a serious injury. If you or a loved one sustained a serious injury one someone else's property, contact us. One of our experienced Virginia premises liability attorneys can help you hold the property owner responsible for your accident.
Corporations have a responsibility to create products that are safe and don't cause serious harm. That's why a wide range of products must undergo rigorous testing before they can be marketed and sold to the public.
Unfortunately, some manufacturers cut corners and fail to rigorously test their products. As a result, many dangerous products are sold, which cause serious injuries or even fatalities. When that happens, those companies need to be held liable for their products.
Other entities may be liable if a product causes injury or death, including the manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer of a product.
Some of the most common dangerous products involved in product liability cases include:
- Dangerous toys
- Defective household appliances
- Malfunctioning vehicles or car parts, such as faulty brakes
- Dangerous drugs
- Defective medical devices
A product may have been recalled by the Food & Drug Administration or the Consumer Product Safety Commission, or it may have been determined to be dangerous by Consumer Reports or by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The following are examples of how a product liability claim might arise:
- Manufacturing defects: A company may have constructed the product in a way that causes injury when used by a consumer.
- Design defects: The product may be unreasonably dangerous because of its design.
- Insufficient instructions or warnings: The product is properly designed and manufactured, but lacks sufficient instructions or warnings. You may have grounds for a product liability claim if you were harmed after exposure to a prescription drug that does not list certain potentially dangerous side effects.
