How can I prove who was at fault for my slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania?

 

A: In order to prove who was at fault in your slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania, you should consult with a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney. Slip and fall cases can be very complex and require a thorough understanding of premises liability law, as well as the how to obtain the evidence necessary to support a claim.

A slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania can occur just about anywhere. The cause could be a wet floor, rickety staircase or potholes in a parking lot. Injuries suffered could include broken bones, head trauma or torn tendons.

Property owners are required to keep their property reasonably free of conditions that could lead to a slip and fall accident.
Even so, the injured party must also be aware of their surroundings. If you trip over a curb while texting on your phone, you would be at fault. On the other hand, if you slipped on a freshly mopped floor and there were no signs warning that the floor was wet, the property owner could be at fault.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in a slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania, a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney can give you a thorough explanation of how fault can be determined.

To prove fault, you'll have to show one of the following:
 

  • either the property owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition that caused your slip and fall accident;
  • either the property owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition and did nothing; or
  • either the property owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition. 


You should speak with a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney as soon after the accident as possible because evidence will need to be collected before it is destroyed. Your attorney might be able to help you receive compensation for your medical expenses, as well as your pain and suffering.
