Proving Premises Liability in West Virginia

By law, property owners have the responsibility of ensuring safe conditions for those that enter their property. If an invited visitor suffers from a hazardous condition while on that property, they can be held accountable for their injury. For example, if there are broken floorboards on a property and a guest trips and suffers a broken leg, the property owner may be liable for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Working with a seasoned and reliable injury attorney is essential to prove the necessary elements of a premises liability claim.

Elements of a premises liability claim that must be proven are:

  • Who is in possession of the property
  • Permission to be on the premises
  • Failure to maintain the premises to an established standard

One exception to premises liability in West Virginia is the “Open and Obvious” hazards doctrine. This is oftentimes used in defense of property owners to show that there is a clear and obvious hazard present that gives notice that the visitor is proceeding at their own risk.
