Some conditions that could lead to an indoor slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania include the following: 

  • Flooring - floors that have been cleaned and are still damp or wet but don't have warning signs displayed may warrant a slip and fall claim. Likewise, a wet area that has not been closed off with a barrier or lacks a clearly posted warning could result in liability for the owner or property operator. Excessive polish or wax that was used on the floor or that was applied unevenly can also lead to an indoor slip and fall.
  • Carpet/Rugs - carpet that is torn or has bulging edges can easily lead to a slip and fall accident, as well as rugs that have curled edges or worn spots. Additionally, items that are caught in the carpet and allowed to catch on footwear could lead to a serious slip and fall injury.
  • Stairs - stairs can be treacherous under the best of circumstances, so special attention should be paid to these areas. For example, steps that are worn, littered with debris or have been waxed despite lacking a skid-proof surface could result in a serious slip and fall accident. Staircases with broken or absent handrails violate building codes and are another example of property owner negligence that may play a part in a slip and fall claim.
  • Escalators/Elevators - defective machinery that causes unexpected jerking movements or machinery that snags clothing or body parts could open up the property owner or operator to issues of slip and fall liability.

Knowing what to do and how to get things done is usually very important. Naturally, it really is also very important to know the way in which to get it done. But that is not enough by itself; it does not conclude there. Knowing just what exactly NOT to do and what mistakes to avoid is also important. The simplest way to achieve that is to discover what mistakes others have made when seeking lawsuit loans and settlement loans so you can steer clear of making those same mistakes.
