Most people associate serious accidents with careless motorists. However, the truth is, people are equally put at risk when they step foot on a property owned by a careless landlord or otherwise. If you are someone who has been injured in a slip and fall accident, you probably now require financial compensation to help you get back on your feet again. That’s what we’re here for. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys to learn more about how our firm can help. Here are some of the questions you may have:
Where do slip and fall accidents most frequently occur?
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, however, certain places and conditions seem to spawn more of these accidents than others. For example, slip and fall accidents occur at pools, in hotels, parking lots, sidewalks, supermarkets, and more.
How do I know if I can sue after a slip and fall injury?
To sue a property owner after an injury, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of his or her negligence. As long as you can demonstrate that the property owner knew, or should have reasonably known about the safety hazard present, failed to fix the problem, and you were injured as a result, you will most likely win the financial compensation you need.
Unfortunately, winning a premises liability lawsuit is very often easier said than done, which is why if you have recently been injured, you will first have to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. You can bet that a significant lawsuit brought against a negligent property owner could cost him/her greatly in the long run, which is why they will frequently hire an aggressive legal team to challenge and disprove your claim–that’s why it is in your best interest to do the same.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Pennsylvania?
In Pennsylvania, individuals have two years from the date of their accident to file a lawsuit against a negligent property owner. If you wait any longer than two years, you will, generally, be denied your right to sue, no matter how badly you truly need the compensation. Do not let this happen.
