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 Reading, 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. Most falls happen on business premises which are caused by failure to remove debris or spilled liquids. In some 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. The burden on proving negligence is upon the victim. It is important to make sure you take the names, telephone numbers and addresses of any eye witnesses on the scene.
