Slips and Falls Injury Attorneys

Beaver, Pennslyvania

Have you or a loved one recently suffered from a slip, trip, or fall due to someone else’s negligence?
You may be entitled to compensation for your past and future medical expenses, past and future earnings, and for your pain and suffering.

When you fall on someone else’s property it can lead to serious and life-threatening and/or long-lasting injuries. Many of these injuries could have been avoided if the property owner had exercised and properly cared for their land. Injuries resulting from these hazardous and unsafe conditions can be serious. You could suffer head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, soft tissue injuries, and more. These injuries can have a significant impact on your quality of life following the accident.

Premise liability laws are the laws that govern slip and fall accidents in the state of Pennsylvania where the individual is injured on someone else’s property. Business and property owners have a responsibility to exercise reasonable care and maintenance to keep their premises safe for those who visit their property. If an individual is seriously injured on the property of another due to their failure to prevent or repair any unsafe conditions, the business or property owner may be liable for the person’s injuries. In order to recover compensation from a business or property owner that you believe is responsible for your injuries, you must prove (1) that the property owner owned or occupied the structure; (2) that the property owner was negligent in taking care of and maintaining the property; (3) that you suffered an injury as a result of the property owner’s negligence; and (4) that you can be compensated for your harm.

These cases can be challenging and it is important to seek an experienced attorney to assist you with these cases.
