Alleged dangerous property conditions led to woman's injuries

The carelessness of a company in West Virginia can cause serious injuries to an individual -- injuries whose effects may last a lifetime. One person in another state said she suffered injuries while on the property of a oil company. She has decided to file a lawsuit against the company due to its allegedly dangerous property conditions.

According to her complaint, the woman was at an oil site that the company owned. The woman reportedly tried to open the gate to a leased field in order to get to a horse trailer that belonged to her. She said at that point, the gate aggressively came off of its hinges and ended up flipping.

The woman said she was tossed about 15 feet. She claimed to have suffered serious injuries to the wrist and arm that required many screws and hardware to be surgically placed. She said the company was negligent because it did not maintain its premises, thus causing the gate to pose a hazard to the company's invitees.

As part of her premises liability lawsuit, the woman is seeking over $75,000 in damages. She is seeking damages not just for medical expenses but also for disfigurement, physical impairment, mental anguish and physical pain. Whenever people in West Virginia are hurt on other people's properties due to dangerous property conditions, they have the right to seek to hold the allegedly at-fault parties accountable through the civil court system. Monetary compensation cannot undo the events leading to the injuries but can help the victims experience closure.
