Proving Negligence and Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident

Before you can collect damages for a slip and fall accident, you must prove the property owner breached their legal duty to secure their property and protect guests from harm. You must also show how their negligence directly caused your injuries and losses.

Our slip and fall accident attorneys will use the facts to prove your slip and fall case and show:

  • A dangerous condition existed on the property during your visit.
  • You were an invited guest or an authorized visitor. (Property owners do not owe trespassers the same duty of care, per Code of Virginia § 8.01-219.1.)
  • The property owner knew, or reasonably should have known, about the dangerous condition.
  • The property owner failed to address or repair the hazard in a reasonable amount of time or warn guests about it.
  • You slipped and fell on the property, suffering injuries.
  • You have compensatory losses from the accident.

Contributory Negligence and Virginia Slip and Fall Cases

If your actions played any part in your fall, you could lose your right to damages. Under Virginia’s strict contributory negligence law, plaintiffs must prove defendants are 100% at fault or they can’t recover their losses.

While the law can complicate matters, you should still review your legal options with the Pendleton Law Team. We understand how contributory negligence can affect your case, so we will work hard to protect your case and prove the property’s owner’s negligence caused your injuries.

Time Limits Apply in Virginia Slip and Fall Lawsuits

If you or a loved one wants to take legal action for your injuries, we urge you to call us now. Your first priority should be to get medical care for the injury you suffered, no matter how small. A prompt medical exam ensures you know what your health status is and what to do if it changes.

It also establishes a direct connection between the accident and your injury, which can help prove your case. Generally, Virginia allows injured parties up to two years from the injury date to sue, per Code of Virginia § 8.01-243. Barring unique circumstances, if the statute of limitations deadline expires, you will lose your right to sue.

Two years can pass by quickly, and it’s easy to lose track of time if you’re focused on recovering. When you work with us, we will file your case on time.
