Trip-and-fall, slip-and-fall accidents common at businesses

A woman in another state recently claimed that she was injured in a trip-and-fall accident while at a casino. She has filed a lawsuit against the casino, alleging that its negligence caused her injury. In the same manner, customers in West Virginia who suffer injuries in trip-and-fall or slip-and-fall accidents stemming from business property owners' carelessness have the right to take legal action to right any wrongs that have been committed.

In the recent out-of-state case, the woman claimed that she was at the casino on July Fourth of last year. However, she suddenly tripped and ended up falling at the casino. Apparently, a hole on the casino grounds had reportedly caused her to trip and fall.

The woman asserted that the hole that had caused her accident was unmarked at the time of the incident. She thus decided to file a lawsuit against the casino nearly a year after the accident. In her lawsuit, she is seeking damages as well as court costs.

Sometimes business property owners in West Virginia and elsewhere fail to maintain safe properties, and as a result, consumers may quickly become injured in trip-and-fall or slip-and-fall accidents. Fortunately, in these situations, the injured consumers have the right to file premises liability claims, seeking the reimbursement of damages. A successfully fought premises liability claim may lead to a financial damage award that might help with addressing medical bills, the loss of wages and other related losses. A monetary award cannot undo the events leading to the accident on a business owner's property, but it may help the injury victim to experience a sense of justice following it.
