Claims Related to Property Damage
When someone else's actions – whether intentional or not – physically damage your home or the surrounding property, you deserve to be able to hold them accountable. Of course, there isn't always liability involved when your home is damaged. Attorney Mark Troy has the experience to determine if someone is legally at fault.
Mr. Troy has handled many of these cases over the years, some of them involving:
- Flooding on your property (from a burst water line, for example)
- Water diverted to your property (from a change in the landscape of an adjoining property, which causes water to flood your property, for example)
- Landslides (caused by someone cutting into a slope)
- Chemicals released onto your property (for example, from a spill or release at a chemical plant)
- Car crashes into your home
- Home collapses because of an outside accident or falling object
You may be able to pursue compensation above and beyond any current offers. If someone is at fault, then you deserve justice.
Sometimes the diminishment of your property is not physical damage but is a nuisance. Anything that interferes with your right to the peaceful enjoyment and use of your property may be considered a nuisance, and you may have a claim based on it.
A nuisance claim may involve:
- Loud noise
- Air pollution
- Water diversion that interferes with the use and enjoyment of your yard and property
An attorney experienced in West Virginia nuisance claims is necessary to find out if you have a case. Noises and foul smells aren't always something for which you can pursue a legal remedy. Mr. Troy can determine if someone should be held accountable.
Trespassing is another way in which a person can diminish your property or interfere with your rights to use and enjoy your property.
Examples of trespass that may constitute a claim include:
- Timber trespass, in which someone chops down a tree on your property without your permission
- Squatters within a property you own
- Adjacent person's privacy fence is extended onto your own property
- Any use of your property in violation of your ownership interests
- Any use of your property that interferes with your rights
If your property contains hardwood trees, you already know that timber is valuable. Someone who chops down trees on your property may be subject by law to pay you three times the value of the timber.
