Premises Liability Lawyers in Philadelphia
Holding Property Managers & Owners Responsible
Did you know that, in Pennsylvania, owners have a legal responsibility to maintain a safe environment for people who enter their property, and can be held liable for any accidents or injuries people sustain as a result of unsafe practices on their establishment? That means that if you get hurt in someone else’s house, backyard, or establishment due to negligent maintenance or unsafe practices, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills and loss of wages.
Some examples of accidents that may qualify for premises liability include:
- Slips and falls from wet floor or icy pavement
- Electrocution from frayed cords
- Tumbling down defective stairways
- Falls due to loose railing or fencing
- Stumbling from uneven pavement
- Crushed by improperly stacked items
- Assault as a result of poor security measures
Essentially, any injury you endure due to a lack of proper safety protocol, or hazardous environment, on someone else’s property should be paid for by the property owner. Our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys are on your side and ready to help you navigate your compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and any other payments for which you qualify.
What Does Premises Liability Include?
Private residences are not the only place where premises liability comes into effect.
Other examples of “premises” that are responsible for protecting you through proactive safety measures include:
- Hotels, Motels, and Inns
- Apartment Complexes
- Business Establishments
- Amusement Parks
- Recreational Parks and Pools
To prove your case, your personal injury lawyers must prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous situation and did nothing to fix it. For example, if a significant amount of time lapsed by without the hazardous situation being addressed, the owner could be held liable for your injury.
