If you’ve been hurt or have lost a loved one as a result of slipping, tripping, or falling on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to recover damages for your injuries and losses. Our slip-and-fall lawyers at Thomas, Conrad & Conrad Law Offices serve clients throughout eastern Pennsylvania. We’re dedicated to helping injured victims obtain the compensation they need to protect their health and financial security after a slip-and-fall accident.

What Is Premises Liability?

Slip-and-fall claims fall under the legal umbrella of premises liability. Businesses and property owners have a responsibility to exercise reasonable care and maintenance to keep their premises safe for those who visit their property. If someone is injured or killed due to the business or property owner’s failure to prevent or repair unsafe conditions, they may be liable for that person’s injuries or death.

However, just because you’re injured, it doesn’t mean a property owner is automatically liable for damages. You must prove the owner or an employee was negligent in their duty to keep the premises in good condition. Proving fault in slip-and-fall cases can be challenging. Our premises liability lawyers have decades of experience in building solid cases to prove negligence and liability in all types of personal injury cases.

Common Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Common causes of slip-and-fall accidents include:

  • Wet floors and spills
  • Hidden defects on walking surfaces, such as damaged stairs and bumpy or cracked floors
  • Rugs and carpets that can cause tripping
  • Items placed on the floor that may pose a hazard
  • Damaged or uneven sidewalks, curbs, walkways, and parking lots
  • Poorly lit walking areas
  • Uncleared ice and snow

Our slip-and-fall accident lawyers have seen countless scenarios in which clients have fallen on someone else’s property due to no fault of their own. We know how to collect valuable evidence and put it all together to prove fault and aggressively pursue the maximum amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.

Types of Injuries Sustained in Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Although slipping or tripping over something may not seem like a major accident, serious injuries can occur in these situations. Broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, soft tissue injuries, cuts, bruises, and spinal cord injuries can have a significant impact on a victim’s quality of life.

These types of injuries can be extremely painful and require costly medical treatment such as multiple surgeries, hospital stays, physical therapy, and ongoing nursing care. It’s important to hire a slip-and-fall accident lawyer who understands how to accurately calculate the value of your claim to ensure your medical costs are covered and you are fully compensated for your damages.

If someone you love was killed in a slip-and-fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against any liable parties. A personal injury lawyer can evaluate your claim and advise you of your options for recovering compensation. Your initial consultation is always free, even if you don’t move forward with your case.
