Four frequently asked questions about VA slip and fall cases:

1. I fell and was injured.  Can I sue someone?

Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer at Tucker Griffin Barnes P.C.

If your injury occurred in a store or a building, you can sue to recover damages to compensate you for your injuries. Be aware, however, that a building owner is not liable for every injury that occurs on the property.

To receive compensation for an injury, the owner or operator of the business must have breached his or her duty to keep the premises reasonably safe and to warn of known dangers. We can provide you with additional details about premises liability.

If you fell while working, your injuries may be covered by your employer’s workers compensation insurance. Visit our Workers’ Compensation page for further information.

2. What types of hazards may trigger premises liability claims?

  • Concealed holes
  • Crumbling curbs
  • Cracked sidewalk
  • Defects in chairs or benches
  • Falling objects
  • Icy walkways
  • Improperly secured mats
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Open excavations
  • Standing water
  • Uncleared snow
  • Uneven pavement
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Defective flooring
  • Broken or missing handrail
  • Aggressive pets
 3. How long do I have to file  a slip and fall suit?
Generally speaking, the statute of limitations in Virginia for personal injury from legal injury is two years from the date of the accident. For injured persons under the age of 18, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of the18th birthday.
Contact an attorney as soon as possible to determine the statute of limitations in your case. In addition, certain conditions or events may change the length of the statute of limitations; so again, you should contact an attorney about your particular case.

4. What is your fee structure for personal injury cases?

We handle accident cases on a contingency fee basis. We do not get paid a legal fee until you receive a settlement or jury verdict award.
