Premises Liability

Effective Representation in Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability refers to the responsibility a property owner has for injuries that occur on his or her property. Not just any accident can give rise to a successful premises liability claim. The accident and resulting injury must have been caused by the property owner’s negligence.

I’m J. Burton Hunter, III, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience representing clients in premises liability cases. If you were injured because of a property owner’s disregard for your safety, I will pursue financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. These damages can include your pain and suffering, medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages or income, and property damage.

I represent clients in a wide range of premises liability cases, including:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bites/animal attacks
  • Stairwell accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Negligent lighting

The majority of my premises liability practice involves people who are injured in public places, such as retail stores, shopping malls, restaurants, government buildings and other places where the public is invited in to come in and do business.

Property-Related Injuries

One of my clients visited a glass blower’s studio in the winter. There were no walkways. My client fell down a slippery bank and blew out his knee. Another client was injured at a courthouse when a piece of marble wainscoting fell off the wall and hit her in the head, resulting in a brain injury.

If you have been injured because of a dangerous condition on another’s property, a personal injury lawyer can evaluate your case. To arrange a free initial consultation about your premises-related injury, please contact my office in Buckhannon, West Virginia. Call toll free 304-472-7477.
