Pennsylvania Slip and Fall Attorney
Over one million Americans suffer a slip and fall accident each year, with more than 17,000 fatalities. Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury.*
Slip and fall accidents are most commonly caused by a hazardous condition on someone else's property resulting in serious injury or even death. These conditions may include slippery pavement due to failing to remove snow or ice; floors made slippery by water leakage or food spillage; uneven flooring or stairs; poor maintenance of property; and/or poor lighting.
Property owners have specific legal responsibilities to maintain their properties. They must also give warning of any hazards while repairing the defects or hazardous condition.
Slip and fall claims are often complicated and difficult to prove. At times, the person is alone, without witnesses, when they fall. The accident scene must be documented immediately to prove a hazardous condition existed. And, insurance companies do their utmost to disprove any negligence on the part of their insured.
