A Slip-And-Fall Accident May Not Be Your Fault

Whether you are in a grocery store or walking down the sidewalk, a slip-and-fall accident can lead to a painful injury. Many people blame themselves, but that may not be true. Whether it happened indoors or outside, the property owner may be held liable if they knew that there were unsafe conditions and did not make an attempt to fix them. The lawyers at Skala Miller, PLLC, Attorneys at Law, can help you build a case against a negligent owner, get you the compensation you may be entitled to and help ensure that the same injury does not happen to another person.

The Duties Of Property Owners

In Pennsylvania, a property owner is required to maintain a safe environment under various circumstances. This typically includes the sidewalk in front of their property, their backyard, stairways and hallways. If you decide to file a claim, you must prove that the owner was intentionally not maintaining their property. You can do this a few ways. You must show that the owner created the condition, knew of the condition and neglected to fix it, or that the condition existed for so long that the owner should have discovered it and corrected it. Our team can help you do this.

Whether you are in a building or a residential property, you have rights. Falling on the ice outside of a store, tripping on a rug in your apartment hallway or an unmarked step in the mall are all examples of slip/trip-and-fall accidents that property owners might have prevented. These can lead to serious injuries, such as fractures, sprains and even head injuries.
