Commonly called a "slip and fall" or premises liability case, these instances cause personal injury when a person slips, falls or trips on a surface. The Brod Law Firm personal injury attorneys represent Berks County, Pennsylvania area clients in these types of cases when the slip and fall was the result of negligence on the part of a property owner or manager. In most successful slip and fall cases, the victim falls because the surface is unexpectedly slick or irregular. If this unsafe surface was preventable, a negligent property owner may be liable for the injuries the victim sustained.
To determine whether or not a property owner was negligent and is liable, there are a number of factors that must by considered by our personal injury attorneys. Pennsylvania courts often consider whether or not the owner knew about the unsafe conditions, how long he or she was aware of the problem and whether or not the owner took the necessary steps to rectify the problem.
