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 slip and fall accident attorneys represent Montgomery 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. We see numerous claims of slip and fall type accidents in Montgomery County since it is one of the largest counties and has a variety of types of properties some very old and poorly maintained in rural, suburban and commercial locations. In most common 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 key is "negligent" property owner. This office receives many inquiries about injuries on another's property, but an injury alone is not enough to cause a property owner liable for damages.
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.
