Visitor's status can determine rights in premises liability case

When a person calls up their friend and asks the friend come over to their house for dinner, the friend may be considered an invitee into the home of the person hosting them for a meal. Situations like this happen each day in Fairfax, but interactions between property owners and others do not end at these straightforward pleasantries. If a person visits a store to buy goods, are they considered an invitee at the store? Or does their status as a visitor change because they were not specifically requested to come to the property owner's building? This post will explore the different statuses individuals may have when they visit properties and how those statuses can change their rights if they are harmed in premises liability accidents.

Several die in Virginia car accidents over Memorial Day weekend

Long holiday weekends are often a time when Virginia residents take to the roads to visit their friends and family members. Just recently, residents of the commonwealth celebrated Memorial Day and the service that countless men and women have given to the nation through their work with the military. Unfortunately, though, not all who traveled by car arrived home safely, and the Virginia State Police report that more than a half-dozen people died on Virginia roads during the long weekend.

We represent victims of truck accidents

Last week this Fairfax personal injury legal blog introduced an interesting topic related to causation and liability in truck accidents. Although in many cases an accident between a large truck and a smaller vehicle is the fault of the driver of the big rig, in some cases other drivers may force truck drivers to make evasive maneuvers that result in accidents but that avoid greater harm.
