If you or a loved one has been the victim of a slip and fall in Philadelphia or New Jersey, you should meet with a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer. If it's determined that the property owner was negligent, you may be eligible to file a slip and fall claim to seek compensation for your injuries.

There's a good chance that your slip and fall claim won't be successful if you slipped and fell because you were busy reading or typing text messages or otherwise not paying attention to your surroundings.

10 Causes of an Indoor Slip and Fall

Some conditions that pose an indoor slip and fall hazard are quite obvious, such as a mopped floor that was obviously just cleaned.

Some conditions aren't so obvious and could be grounds for a slip and fall claim:
 

  • torn carpeting;
  • foreign objects in carpeting;
  • loose tile;
  • loose floorboards;
  • cluttered stairs;
  • rugs with upturned edges;
  • missing handrails;
  • malfunctioning elevators or escalators;
  • wet floors with no warnings or barriers; and
  • spilled food or liquids. 


To preserve your legal rights after a slip and fall in Philadelphia or New Jersey, you should collect as much evidence as possible, seek medical attention, and consult a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer.
