Slip-and-fall accidents can lead to severe injuries

A slip-and-fall accident in West Virginia may end up negatively disrupting a person's life by causing severe injuries and keeping the person from being able to work. Not being able to work, when combined with having to receive medical treatment for injuries, as a result of slip-and-fall accidents can place an unexpected financial burden on an individual. One man in an out-of-state case is currently suing a church and its reverend after reportedly being involved in this type of accident at a funeral.

The man said he was attending a funeral at the community church. He walked down a hallway where he slipped and then fell. The man said he suffered both psychological and major physical injuries as a result of the slip-and-fall accident.

The man has filed a lawsuit against both the church and its reverend. He has accused the church of not maintaining its premises and not properly inspecting the premises. He also said that the church failed to issue a warning about a hazard, did not maintain its premises in a condition deemed to be safe and did not appropriately supervise employees.

The man, in his lawsuit, is seeking damages for both pain and suffering and medical expenses. Property owners in West Virginia have a responsibility to the public to ensure that their properties are safe for others. When slip-and-fall accidents occur, it is within the rights of the injured parties to take the matters to civil court. If awarded, financial damages may help with addressing any financial ramifications of the accidents.
