It is the important responsibility of property owners to ensure the safety of all visitors to their property. While some instances may arise that results in an unexpected and unpreventable accident, when the negligence of the property owner means that someone else has suffered a personal injury, the property owner can be held accountable under premises liability laws. Under West Virginia law, property owners have an ongoing duty to ensure the property maintains important safety standards.

Premises liability is the legal premise surrounding the responsibility that property owners have to ensure the safety of those present on their property. In a premises liability case, the injured party needs to prove that the actions of the property owner contributed to their accident. Generally, this means that someone had sufficient opportunity to discover the danger and correct it before it caused harm.
Nearly any injury that can occur on a property can be attributed to a failure of a property owner to provide a safe environment. However, in these cases, a number of key factors will be critical in determining the property owner's limit of responsibility such as whether the plaintiff was a trespasser or a non-trespasser, whether reasonable care of the property was demonstrated by the owner, and whether there was reasonable time for property owners to respond to any contributing conditions
