Thousands of people are injured each year in slip and fall accidents around the country. If a property or business owner has neglected his or her duty to keep the premises safe and you were injured as a result, you'll need to speak to a slip and fall firm in Philadelphia to discuss filing a Pennsylvania slip and fall claim.

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere at any time. Numerous factors can contribute to these falls, and property owners are considered responsible for fixing any dangerous conditions.

Causes of Accidents Reported in Pennsylvania Slip and Fall Claims

The 6 most common causes of slip and fall claims:
 

  • spilled liquids in stores or other places of business;
  • merchandise, equipment, or objects on the floor or improperly shelved;
  • slippery ice and snow in walkways or parking lots of a store or business;
  • loose rugs or carpeting;
  • loose, missing, or broken stairway handrails; and
  • wet floors in a public place with no wet floor warning sign. 


Serious injuries can occur under these dangerous conditions and if you've suffered injuries because of a store or property owner's negligence, you may be able to seek compensation. 

Take your case to a slip and fall firm in Philadelphia, discuss the details of your accident and subsequent injuries, and see if filing a personal injury slip and fall claim may be the right course of action for you.
