PENNSYLVANIA SLIP AND FALL LAWYERS
You’ve likely slipped and fallen at some point, luckily most of us can go about our day after such an incident, but sometimes these falls cause serious injuries. More often than not, there are also responsible parties that should’ve taken more precautions to ensure their properties are safe for people using their establishment or passing through.
If you’ve suffered from a slip and fall, then you want to be sure to consult an experienced legal team to review all of your options. This is true even if your injuries don’t seem that serious. It can take weeks or even months for the full effects of some injuries to become clear, and injuries suffered as a result of a slip and fall can lead to poor health outcomes and even death. That’s why Richard Hollawell and his team are committed to fighting to get you what you and your family deserve.
INJURIES AFTER A SLIP AN FALL ACCIDENT IN PA
A number of injuries can occur as a result of a slip and fall, but the most common are:
- Sprained wrists
- Damage to the knee
- Brain injury
- Broken bones
- Shoulder dislocation
These are injuries that can ruin your quality of life and even keep you out of work. That means more financial stress for you on top of the medical expenses you already have to pay.
Even one seemingly minor fall can lead to death. This is true if someone suffers head or neck injury during the fall, but it can also be true in ways that aren’t so apparent. If someone was already elderly or sick, an injury caused by a fall can make their recovery much harder, sometimes they may not be able to overcome the extra hardship. Someone needs to be held responsible when these tragedies occur.
SLIP AND FALLS DUE TO NEGLIGENT PROPERTY OWNERS
You don’t have to accept that you or your loved one’s fall was just bad luck, slip and falls are often the result of negligent maintenance on the part of the property owner. Under liability laws pertaining to premises, the owner of a home or business has a duty to take reasonable care that their visitors aren’t harmed. That means property owners must meet a reasonable standard of care and maintenance to prevent visitors from being injured.
That means that if they leave a spill uncleaned or have a loose railing they should know about the risks they pose and take measures to fix them. Some common types of property negligence include:
- Improper lighting
- Uncleared snow or ice
- Inadequate security leading to assault
- Fire hazards
- Exposed electrical units
- Unsafe conditions like broken stairs, unsecured scaffolding, and defective railings or ramps
