All public and private property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe. When you are injured due to a dangerous condition, you may be entitled to compensation. What does this mean? What qualifies as a dangerous condition? The answer is not always clear, which is why you should speak with a lawyer under any circumstances.
If you have been injured on another's property, give us a call at 304-932-4571. We will help you determine if you have a case in a free consultation.
At the Akers Law Offices, we represent people who were injured on public property or on another person's property as the result of negligence. Over his career in West Virginia, attorney JB Akers has recovered compensation for injuries suffered in slip-and-fall and other accidents because of dangerous conditions such as:
- Debris at a construction site
- Injuries suffered in or around hotels
- Unmarked slippery surface
- Sidewalk cracks
- Dog bites
- Inadequate security in a parking lot or parking ramp
- Broken steps
- Uneven pavement
- Inadequate lighting
- Broken or missing handrails
- Negligent or intentional nursing home abuse and neglect
People Can Repair Dangerous Conditions. Act Fast To Preserve Evidence.
Premises liability claims are difficult to pursue because negligent parties can fix the problem before evidence is gathered. They may do so with good intentions or to cover up liability. This is only one reason why it is absolutely necessary and important to contact a lawyer soon after your accident.
When you contact us, our attorney will begin collecting evidence immediately for your case. He takes pictures of the poorly maintained area, gathers eyewitness accounts and obtains medical reports that support your testimony.
We Fight For Maximum Compensation Before We Charge Attorney Fees
We understand that injuries, like back and head injuries, are life-altering. We know that you may no longer be able to work or that you may require extensive medical treatment. Our firm seeks the maximum compensation for your injuries. We strive to recover damages for medical bills, therapy costs, lost wages, new job training, and other expenses in addition to pain and suffering.
We begin our representation with a free initial consultation and never charge you attorneys fees unless we recover compensation for you. If you have been injured, call our office in Charleston at 304-932-4571 or toll free at 888-689-4893. You can also contact us by email.
