York Premises Liability Attorney

What constitutes premises liability in Pennsylvania?

Premises liability law places the responsibility for proper maintenance of a building or the surrounding grounds squarely on the shoulders of the owner or operator. This includes residences, hotels, apartment buildings, office buildings, retail businesses, malls, and public buildings. Anyone who is injured, despite taking reasonable care, as a result of a hazardous condition inside or outside may be due compensation.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, schedule a case evaluation with our York personal injury attorney right away.

Filing a Claim in Pursuig of Compensation

Premises liability cases involve complex issues and very much depend upon being able to prove that a hazardous condition existed, that the owner was aware of it or should have been, that there was no or an inadequate posted warning, and that your injuries resulted from the accident. A slip and fall accident is the most common when steps are icy or if floors are wet. A person might trip and fall over broken pavement, torn carpeting, or other obstacles especially in dim lighting.

Malfunctioning escalators and elevators can also cause serious or fatal injuries. A seasoned premises liability lawyer investigates the accident scene to assess and document the existing conditions. Witnesses must be located and interviewed and any surveillance videos tracked down and secured. Building a strong case right away creates a much greater chance of a successful outcome for your claim.

Acceptable Injuries for Your Claim

Injuries can range from lacerations and sprains to more serious fractures and broken bones, to catastrophic injuries such as burns, spinal cord injury, brain injury or even fatal injury. A negligent property owner may be liable for compensation for medical expenses, lost income, future lost wages, pain and suffering and other directly related expenses.
