The risk of being seriously injured in a winter slip and fall accident is greater when compared to other seasons because conditions can be extremely hazardous. If you believe that someone else’s negligence was the cause of your slip and fall injuries, you should contact a Philadelphia law firm as soon as possible.

A law firm that handles premises liability cases will refer you to a slip and fall lawyer who can explain what legal options may be available and will determine if your claim is legitimate and worth pursuing.

Here are some common causes of a Philadelphia winter slip and fall accident: 

  • failure to remove snow;
  • failure to treat icy surfaces;
  • failure to clean up puddles or other wet areas;
  • not posting barriers or warning signs indicating an area is dangerous; and
  • not adequately inspecting property for hazardous conditions. 

The property owner has a responsibility to maintain safe conditions. Whether a neighbor or a business has been negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you have sustained.

Although you may have done your part to help prevent a winter slip and fall in Philadelphia, you could be eligible to receive compensation if someone else’s negligence led to you being injured. Contact a slip and fall lawyer who has experiencing handling these types of claims.
