Welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm – serving Lancaster, PA and surrounding areas. Our law firm has decades of experience dealing with slip & fall accidents of all kinds. These types of incidents are very common, but they can be very difficult to prove. Frequently, there are no witnesses to corroborate an injury claim, and when no camera surveillance is available, the challenges for establishing and proving negligence become even more bleak.
Due to those facts, one’s best bet is to seek seasoned legal representation. Our slip & fall lawyers have the experience you want and need to ensure your claim becomes a viable case and your chances of receiving substantial damages becomes enhanced.
Everything from minor bruises to broken bones to internal injuries or death can result when slippery floors, unmaintained sidewalks, or dangerous areas at construction sites offer no signage or cordoned off areas to indicate a potential hazard. Were you or a loved one injured in a slip & fall incident? Did a loved one die as a result of a slip & fall accident? Do you believe the other party was at fault – either partially or entirely?
Regarding any of these questions, doing what is in your best interest is paramount but it needs to be done, as quickly as possible, since evidence can ‘disappear’. You have nothing to lose by calling our legal team at 1-800-HURT-NOW, right now. You can schedule a free consultation.
Owners of businesses and private property have a legal responsibility to keep their premises free of potential hazards. The term ‘premises liability’ is used to refer to slip & fall accidents on public or private premises that involve an injury. Aside from slip & fall accidents, premises liability can include other personal injuries that involve dog bites, faulty elevators, carbon monoxide leaks, amusement park accidents, faulty playground equipment, and so much more.
With premises liability, the requisite is based on unsafe conditions that may have been present when an accident occurred. Premises liability determines whether the property owner or its representative is, legally, at fault for injuries or a wrongful death.
When negligence is determined for someone who did not utilize adequate care to ensure the safety of a particular location, lawsuits for damages ensue, and monetary compensations can be quite substantial. With that being said, in Pennsylvania, if you or a loved one were not injured during a slip & fall accident, but a personal possession was destroyed or damaged in the process– such as an expensive watch or piece of jewelry – our slip & fall lawyers could help you seek the repair or replacement of the damaged property.
Whenever financial-compensation payouts are a possible outcome for a claim – regardless of the type of personal-injury accident – it is always best to seek lawyers who are fully acquainted with this legal arena. When Lancaster, PA claimants hope the insurance company will eagerly pay damages, it is a false hope since the insurance industry has very little interest in letting go of their monetary assets unless they are, legally, forced to do so.
Insurance companies don’t want to pay anything if they can get away with it. Insurance companies have the ability to delay, diminish, or outright deny claims with success when claimants negotiate with insurance companies without strong legal representation.
Take, for example, a friendly insurance claims adjuster asking you to partake in a recorded conversation to offer details about your slip & fall accident. That friendly voice is ready to prompt you to say one word or one statement that could, hopefully, be used to sabotage your defense – don’t let that happen to you! Your best move is to avoid speaking with the insurance company, altogether.
Instead, contact our slip-and-fall lawyers who would be ready to, fully, communicate with the insurance company, on your behalf. Our legal team is among the best of the best and will, aggressively, fight for your rights to help ensure you receive every dime you are entitled to! When you have a potent legal ally on your side, it can make the difference between receiving little or no compensation versus a financial pay out that could be substantial.
Unfortunately, many claimants are under the false impression they can’t afford a lawyer to help with their accident-injury claims. When it comes to our law firm’s slip & fall lawyers, nothing could be further from the truth. Our Lancaster, PA clients pay no out-of-pocket fees for our lawyers’ time, effort, and services.
Our contingency-fee arrangement means that only if we succeed in getting you compensated through litigation or protecting your benefits by defending you in litigation, do we receive a fee. Know that affordability is not an issue since fees are derived from a portion of financial compensations.
Don’t allow a lack of legal representation to be the reason you walk away with far less than what you might be entitled to receive! Any insurance company will be armed ‘to the teeth’ with powerful defense lawyers on their side to fractionalize your damages. Shouldn’t you have the same legal prowess on your side to ensure they don’t succeed? Our slip & fall lawyers will be by your side from start to finish!
Winning slip & fall cases is the grand-prize goal our legal team strives for. At Georgelis Injury Law firm, winning is extremely important for our Lancaster, PA clients because it means justice has been served.
Though financial compensations can’t eliminate disfigurement or bring back a loved one, monetary recoveries help claimants move on with their lives and regain a sense of normalcy without having to worry about hospital bills, lost wages, and a host of other financial concerns.
When our lawyers win, it is a result of many hours of dogged dedication, discipline, and after-hours efforts which are devoted to every case and every client – and it all pays off. From a $2,350,000 motorcycle-accident recovery case and a $1,500,000 commercial-vehicle claim to a $300,000 dog-bite award and a $165,000 slip & fall settlement, our achievements have helped those in Lancaster, PA not only realize justice but reach the closure they long for.
Georgelis Law utilizes its winning strategies with slip & fall accidents, of all types:
Defective conditions that contribute to slip & fall accidents cover a wide range of possibilities. From broken stairways/walkways, loose handrails, and cluttered floors to crumpled carpet, slippery mats, and inadequate lighting – these scenarios are just begging for accidents to take place.
If any potentially-dangerous conditions exist, adequate signs must be posted to warn of the hazards. If a property owner fails to repair or remove hazards or defects which contribute to a slip & fall accident, a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner can be filed.
If you believe defective conditions contributed to your accident and injury, call our slip & fall lawyers to determine how we might move forward with your hospital bills, lost wages, and more.
If, during the course and scope of your employment at a construction site, you experienced a slip & fall accident resulting in one or more injuries, call our law firm right away! This is important since you could be tricked into receiving a mere portion of financial recoveries through the workers’ compensation system.
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and the workers’ compensation system includes weak links that could jeopardize the care of your injuries or your entire claim. Our slip & fall lawyers will uncover any unethical tactics and pursue every penny you are due!
Non-employees on a construction site can experience slip & fall accidents, as well. At a home-construction location, an official visitor might fall into a large hole where no barriers or warnings were present. Or, perhaps, someone might step onto an unsecured manhole cover and become injured at an industrial-development site.
Be assured, your slip & fall claim will garner our immediate attention. We are ready to sort through the details of your claim and advise you of your legal options.
An owner of a property is, legally, required to maintain the property to ensure visitors are not at risk of injury. Reasonable care must be employed to correct any dangerous conditions. From rickety floor-boards on an old deck that should have been replaced to an ice-impacted sidewalk that should have been salt-treated, dangerous slips, trips, and falls can become extremely hazardous and result in serious injuries.
When dangerous conditions are allowed to exist, accidents should be expected and so should lawsuits. Contact Georgelis Injury Law Firm – we will determine if you qualify for monetary compensation due to your slip & fall incident.
Did your slip & fall accident occur inside a retail store, mall, hotel, office area, theater, amusement park, bowling alley, or other commercial location? Perhaps, your accident happened outside on a commercial property’s defective sidewalk or parking lot. Whatever the details of your accident might be, our seasoned lawyers will determine what you may be entitled to.
Pool areas can be dangerous places for young children who don’t understand the risks of how easily slips and falls can occur. If a private pool owner allows visiting children to run on wet surfaces and a slip & fall accident were to occur, the property owner could be held liable for not exercising reasonable care.
If lifeguards at a public pool exercise inadequate concern for children running on wet pavement, or if faulty steps leading to a water slide fail, liabilities could be determined.
These examples of slip & fall incidents represent only a few out of a myriad of other slip & fall scenarios that occur every single day. If you or a loved one are dealing with slip & fall injuries, regardless of the venue, do not hesitate to give our law firm a call, right now!
