You should contact a Philadelphia law firm immediately if you sustained severe or life-threatening injuries as a result of a winter slip and fall accident. A law firm can refer you to a slip and fall lawyer who will be able to determine if your claim is worth pursuing. 

A slip and fall case can be lengthy and complex to process. You will need adequate evidence of your injuries and damages you have suffered, along with proving liability.

Here are some factors that can play an important role in determining liability in a Philadelphia winter slip and fall accident: 

  • the owner should have reasonably known a dangerous condition existed;
  • the owner should have known then to fix or remove the dangerous condition;
  • the owner may have caused the hazardous condition to exist; and
  • the owner may have known about the hazardous condition, yet failed to take steps to correct it. 

Establishing what an individual should have reasonably known or in what timeframe a dangerous condition should have been corrected can be difficult to determine. This is why seeking help from a Philadelphia law firm is important.

There are ways to help prevent a winter slip and fall in Philadelphia. However, if you have done all you can, but a property owner’s negligence still results in you being seriously injured, you could be eligible to file a claim. You should contact a slip and fall lawyer immediately who can determine if you have a valid claim.
