When it comes to slip and fall injuries, the attorneys at Epperly & Follis, P.C., located in Richmond, VA, are ready to help with your claim. It is our belief landlords and property owners must be held accountable when they fail to maintain safe conditions.
Victims often suffer many monetary losses after a fall. The damages are usually much more than medical expenses. Lost wages and future earnings are at stake. Rehabilitation appointments can last for many months after the accident.
Some of the most common injuries where you may be entitled to compensation include:
These are just some of the injuries associated with premises liability cases.
In our experience, the laws of Virginia make it difficult for an injured victim to obtain fair compensation in a slip and fall case. To be successful, it has to be proven the responsible party was aware of the hazardous element that caused the accident. Proving negligence can be challenging. In Virginia, if a victim is proven to be 1% negligent, the entire case could be denied. This is one of the main reasons why having professional legal representation is so important. You may think I was 1% at fault and decide not to contact a lawyer. Do not make that assumption. If you have fallen and are hurt you should contact an attorney so they can review the case. Although the law of contributory negligence make these cases difficult there can be factors that overcome your potential 1 % of negligence.
There are many properties where incidents may occur:
If the property owner failed to follow the law, we are often able to prove negligence, regardless of any previous awareness of a dangerous condition.

Our experienced legal team understands all relevant state and federal safety regulations; we are familiar with the applicable case law, and we know how to leverage this knowledge to help our clients obtain the compensation they deserve.
