In order to recover damages after a slip and fall in Philadelphia or New Jersey, you will have to show that the property owner was negligent and their negligence is directly related to your injury. To boost your chances at being successful with your slip and fall claim, you should acquire the assistance of a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer.

Although many accidents happen because the victim was simply not paying attention and tripped over a curb, the property owner cannot be held liable in these situations. If it can't be proven that the property owner is at fault, you won't be able to recover damages, despite the severity of your injuries.

However, if you are partially at fault for your injuries, you still may be able to recover damages from the property owner. Your damages may be reduced, though, by your percentage of fault. For example, if you were entitled to $50,000 in damages but were found to be 25% at fault, your damages would be reduced by 25% to $37,500.

To protect your case after a slip and fall in Philadelphia or New Jersey, you should gather as much evidence as possible, get contact information from witnesses, follow all of your doctor's orders and meet with a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer.
