Legal protections are available to victims of slip-and-falls

Slip-and-fall accidents can cause serious harm to unsuspecting victims, leaving them feeling like they are facing medical bills that are piling up, and an inability to work as a result of their injuries, all on their own. Fortunately, an area of the law known as premises liability protects victims who have suffered harm in a slip-and-fall accident.

In Pennsylvania, property owners are required to keep their property free from dangerous conditions that could cause harm. If they have created a dangerous condition on their property, or are reasonably aware of a dangerous property condition on their property, they have a duty to remedy the dangerous property condition or warn of the dangerous property condition. If they fail to do either, they may be liable to victims for the harm they suffer as a result.

A premises liability claim for damages following a slip-and-fall accident can help victims recover compensation for their physical, financial and emotional injuries and harm suffered. Victims may need to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost earnings and compensation for the emotional harm they have suffered as well. Victims of slip-and-fall accidents can suffer serious injuries, including head injuries, on sidewalks, in parking lots or at the grocery store.

Because a premises liability claim for damages can be complex, and may include insurance companies, it is helpful for victims to have trained guidance through the process of making a claim for damages. It is important for them to remember that property owners are required to maintain their property in a safe condition but when they have failed to do so, legal protections are available to help victims harmed by their carelessness.
