Determining negligence in a Pennsylvania slip and fall accident is a difficult task that's best left to a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney. Consider an outdoor slip and fall accident in winter, for example.

If your Pennsylvania slip and fall accident occurred on snow or ice, the property owner might be liable under specific circumstances.
Generally, property owners are not required to remove snow or ice that naturally accumulates because of weather. If certain conditions caused the ice or snow to accumulate unnaturally, the property owner could be held liable.

Such special conditions include:
 

  • ice forms on the roof, melts and then drips because a drain is clogged; consequently, the ice will refreeze on the ground;
  • a sloped parking lot causes ice to melt and form puddles; the puddles later refreeze and form patches of ice; and
  • the property owner volunteers to remove ice or snow and does so negligently, leaving patches of ice or pockets of snow behind.

 If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in an indoor or outdoor slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania, you should seek medical attention and speak with a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney. You might be entitled to compensation for current and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and any incidental expenses.
