Premises liability lawsuit against JC Penney

Restaurants and stores provide services and products to consumers. They also have a responsibility to maintain safe premises and ensure that the store or restaurant, including some exterior areas like parking lots and sidewalks, are free from unnecessary risks and safety hazards. When a Virginia property owner fails to fulfill this duty, he or she can be held responsible for a consumer's injury in a premises liability lawsuit. Premises liability lawsuits can result from slip-and-fall accidents, collapsing or dangerous stairwells, unlit or unsafe parking lots, defective sidewalks, and other problems.

Virginia residents should know that there is legal recourse to hold the manufacturers of dangerous products responsible for any damages or injuries that result from use of such products.
