Store owners and premises liability in Pennsylvania

Whenever anyone, such as a store owner, opens their property to the public, there is a possibility that someone may be injured on the property. Pennsylvania store owners and brick-and-mortar retailers have a duty to keep their property reasonably safe for the public. If they breach this duty, and a customer is injured as a result, the store owner or operator may be liable to the injured customer.

Icy sidewalks may be a dangerous property condition

It's winter in Pennsylvania, and that means snowfall is likely from now until springtime. Although snow can be fun for skiers and sledders, it can also be dangerous to driving or traveling on foot. State and local governments often handle the clearing of snow from public roads, but property owners may be responsible for removing snow from public sidewalks on their property.

What happens if a trespasser is hurt on another's property?

During the holiday season, Pennsylvanians may receive a multitude of invitations to attend parties, get-togethers, and outings with friends and relatives. As they enter onto the properties of other individuals, they may be made aware of any potential dangers that lurk in those places. If they suffer harm from falls, trips, or other accidents while the invitees of the property owners, then they may have rights to compensation for their losses.

A reckless driver could be liable for the injuries they cause

All Berks County drivers have a legal duty to keep a proper lookout while driving and to take other reasonable steps to drive safely. When a driver breaches this duty, and another party suffers injury, the driver may be liable to the injured party. The driver may have to provide compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial losses.

Don't let a negligent property owner's insurer push you around

Earlier, we examined an accident case from a neighboring state. The victim was walking outside of a commercial building when he fell on an icy sidewalk and suffered serious brain injuries. He was eventually provided with $750,000 in compensation as part of a settlement.

Victim gets $750,000 in settlement of premises liability suit

As the leaves change and the nights grow longer and cooler in Berks County, residents are beginning to prepare for the winter months. While many look forward to the holidays and winter sports, shoveling snow is something grudgingly accepted as a responsibility. But make no mistake, a responsibility it is -- especially for commercial property owners who need to keep their sidewalks and parking lots safe for their customers and other passersby.

Recovering damages after a dog bite attack

Even though dogs are out best friend, it doesn't mean that all of them act that way all the time. All it takes is one bad encounter with an aggressive dog to put someone in a serious situation. Injuries from dog bites can range from minor to severe, but one thing is certain - you should receive the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Injured guests may seek recovery for a hotel's premises liability

Many folks from Berks County have checked into a hotel for stays of one evening or longer. At the end of their stay, they check out and think no more about it. Sometimes, however, people suffer injury on a hotel's property. Can these guests sue the hotel for the damages they suffered? It all depends on the specific circumstances, but sometimes guests can recover from hotels for premises liability.
