Slip and Fall Accidents in Pennsylvania

Property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property, whether it be a house, business or other type of property is safe and that individuals who enter the property will not sustain harm while on the premises. Property owners must comply with federal guidelines and provide a safe environment for invitees and licensees to be while on the property. Should a guest of someone’s home or patron of a business slip while on the property, the owner could be held liable for any injuries sustained by the individual.

In a court of law, an injured victim who slipped, fell or endured another form of harm on someone else’s property must prove to the court that the negligence of the property owner was to blame for their injuries. Some injuries that can result from a Pennsylvania slip and fall accident can range from minor to severe and include broken bones, bruising, brain injury, spinal cord injury and other injuries.

Because premises liability is highly complex and can involve more than one negligent party, it is highly recommended that an experienced Pennsylvania premises liability attorney be obtained. Not only can a lawyer explain the rights and options of the injured victim, but they’ll also gather evidence and develop a strong case strategy.
