Types of Virginia Premises Liability Claims

While slip and fall accidents make up the majority of premise liability cases, our Virginia attorneys also handle claims involving:

  • Negligent security
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Swimming pool drowning
  • Playground injuries
  • Animal attacks (dog bites, etc.)
  • Negligent maintenance
  • Rapes and assaults
  • Apartment complex injuries

While property owners are typically the defendants in Newport News premises liability cases, they are not the only individuals who can be liable in these situations. For instance, builders and architects can also be liable for design defects or insufficiencies, which result in dangerous conditions for the public and of which they should have been aware during the construction.
