I slipped and fell while I was shopping in a store in Philadelphia, and broke my hip. Should I contact a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer to file a Pennsylvania Slip and Fall Claim?

 

A: If you slipped and fell while shopping in a store in Philadelphia and broke your hip, then you should definitely contact a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer. At the very least you can determine whether you have the grounds for a Pennsylvania slip and fall claim.

Proving negligence in this type of claim can be difficult. You must demonstrate that the Philadelphia property owner failed to maintain their property in a reasonable manner. Or, you must prove that the property owner neglected to address an existing hazard. 

For instance, if a worker recently waxed the floors inside the store and failed to provide warning signs or a barrier, then if you slipped and fell, you may have a valid Pennsylvania slip and fall claim.

However, if there were signs warning of the floor being wet and/or barriers to prevent you from walking on it but you ignored these, then you wouldn't have a valid claim.

You not only have to show that there was negligence but you must also be able to prove that your injuries were a result of it.
This is where a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer can help.

If it can be demonstrated that a property owner of the store was negligent and it directly caused your injuries, then you may be entitled to damages through a Pennsylvania slip and fall claim.

Damages can include:
 

  • medical expenses,
  • current and future lost wages,
  • pain and suffering, and
  • any future medical treatment as a result of your injuries. 

A Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer will evaluate the details of your case to determine if you should proceed with filing a Pennsylvania slip and fall claim.
