If you have been injured in a slip and fall on someone else's property, then the property owner may be held liable if: 

  • They fail to provide adequate warning to indicate that a floor is wet;
  • They fail to provide barriers preventing access to a dangerous floor;
  • They use too much wax or polish;
  • They fail to fix torn or worn areas of a carpet;
  • They fail to properly maintain stairs; or
  • You are injured on an escalator or elevator because of glitches in the machinery that cause you to fall.

If any of these conditions or incidents led to injuries in a slip and fall accident, then you may be eligible for compensation in a personal injury claim.

A Pennsylvania injury lawyer can investigate the evidence in your slip and fall accident. If you do have cause for a personal injury claim, an attorney can try to negotiate a settlement with the responsible property owner. If the property owner does not want to compensate you for your damages, then an attorney can file an injury claim in a formal court of law.
