"Each year about 4 billion dollars are awarded to compensate premises liability injury victims."

Expert Pennsylvania Premises Liability  Accident Attorneys.

 Second only to motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents account for 15 percent of all accidental deaths in the United States. It's not hard to see that slip and fall accidents can be extremely serious, whether you're at work, home, or anywhere else.

Premises liability laws require private, commercial, and public property owners to maintain their property and provide a safe environment to pedestrians and visitors: neighbors, patrons, passersby, vendors, mail carriers, and others.

 

To have a valid slip and fall claim, you must be able to show that the property owner failed to properly maintain the property and/or failed to warn you of an existing hazard. You must also be able to prove that the property owner was aware, or should have been aware of the hazard, and failed to protect you from being injured on the premises. The best decision you can make to protect yourself after a slip and fall accident is to enlist the services of Daly & Clemente.

COMMON INJURIES FROM SLIP & FALL

A slip and fall accident may cause relatively minor injuries like a sprain or bruising or severe injuries such as:

  • Fractures (broken bones)

  • Knee injuries

  • Dislocated shoulders

  • Muscle strains

  • Spinal cord and nerve injuries

  • Traumatic brain injuries 

Such injuries could result in significant medical bills, time away from work, and other life-altering problems. In some of the worst cases, slip and fall accidents can cause irreversible brain damage or spinal injuries that require surgical repair.

Regardless of the nature of your accident, you need to see a doctor right away after a slip and fall. Failure to obtain medical treatment may not only aggravate your injuries, but it could also jeopardize your ability to collect compensation later.

Not all properties are safe.

THAT'S WHY YOU NEED OUR EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS

More often than not, slip and fall accidents occur after the property owner has failed to:

                    (1) warn visitors about a hazardous condition, and

                    (2) take prompt action to remedy the hazard.

In such cases, the negligent property owner can be held liable through a premises liability lawsuit.

Whether it’s an unaddressed spill on a floor, a faulty railing or step, an obstruction of some sort, or any other factor a property owner knew about but did not address, you’re left dealing with a host of issues that were no fault of your own. You don’t have to put up with this.

 

You can file a slip & fall lawsuit against the property owner whose negligence had a negative impact on your life, and our experienced attorneys, who’ve secured several million-dollar verdicts for injured clients, are available to help.

COMMON CAUSES OF SLIP, TRIP & FALL INJURIES

Slip and fall accidents can result from all types of hazards, including:

  • Wet, icy, or slippery surfaces

  • Broken steps or cracked sidewalks

  • Poorly secured bannisters

  • Torn or uneven carpeting

  • Debris/obstructed walkways

  • Poorly lit walkways or hallways

  • Uneven or warped flooring

  • Poorly secured rugs

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I FALL?

If you were injured in a fall that was caused by a property owner’s negligence, there are several steps you can take to protect your rights.

  • Arrange for transportation to an emergency room. Get help from EMTs if you need it. You can make an injury worse if you try to move without professional assistance.

  • Use your mobile phone to take pictures of any obstructions, wet spots, or other hazards that contributed to your fall. Get the names of all witnesses who saw you fall.

  • If you can do so without impairing your health, tell the manager or property owner that you want a copy of any accident investigation report that they prepare. 

  • If your doctor wants you to participate in physical therapy or to undergo tests, do what the doctor prescribes. Ending treatment prematurely will impair your ability to recover the full amount of compensation you deserve. 

  • Your lawyer will want to conduct a full investigation. You will need to sign a release so your lawyer can obtain copies of your medical records. Only after the full extent of your injury is known can your personal injury attorney assess the settlement value of your claim. 

  • If the insurance adjuster on behalf of the business where you were injured contacts you, consult an attorney immediately. Saying the wrong thing to an insurance adjuster can damage your ability to recover compensation.
