Our Lancaster Slip and Fall Attorneys Will Hold Property Owners Accountable

Slip, trip and fall accidents are common occurrence with thousands of claims made each and every year. Many people who fall victim to these types of accidents suffer catastrophic, life-altering injuries which, in the most serious cases, can result in wrongful death.

Poorly lit stairwells, slippery and wet floors, uneven pavement or sidewalk defects, poor security measures, open excavations and falling objects are some of the more common causes of injury.  When you are injured due to the neglect of another business or property owner, our experienced personal injury attorneys can determine whether you are owed damages for the negligence.

Through a free case review, our attorneys can help you better understand the law and what you could be entitled to. There are quite a few factors to consider, including previous complaints about an existing hazard, determining what negligence came into play, and determining negligence, if any, of the individual injured.

In many cases, slip and fall accident victims have a right to recover damages for their losses. Premises liability, as we call it, refers to property owners’ responsibility for injuries that happened on their property due to negligence.

Some of the more common locations for premises liability claims are parking lots, retail establishments, common areas of apartment complexes and ways of ingress/egress to/from business properties.

At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C., our experienced team of legal professionals will immediately launch a thorough investigation into how and why your accident occurred, gathering all the evidence necessary to support your slip, trip and fall claim. With premises liability claims, time is almost always of the essence, in that it is critical to document the state and condition of the dangerous condition as closely to how it existed at the time you were hurt as possible.

Our leading injury and accident attorneys will advise you on your treatment options and explain to you who will pay for your medical bills, as we work to gain a solid understanding of your pain and suffering and the impact your injuries have had on your life.  We also move quickly in making sure all of your economic losses are documented and quantified, including your diminished ability to work and the resultant loss of earnings.

Injuries at a Leased or Owned Property or Business: Landowners’ Duties

Georgelis Injury Law Firm has represented hundreds of accident victims who have been injured as a result of business owners or landowners failure to adequately, and in a timely manner, inspect their property, address or repair dangerous conditions or post warnings of potential hazards. This area of the law can be very complex, so engaging a law firm with the best knowledge and experience involving these situations can be critical to proving liability on the part of the business or land owner and establishing the fair value of your injuries and resulting pain and suffering.

These are Just a Few Examples of When to Call Our Experienced Slip and Fall Attorneys...

  • An apartment resident is hit by a vehicle in a dark parking lot because the landlord ignored requests to fix the burned-out lights
  • A child drowns in a pool because a water park did not provide adequate lifeguards
  • A construction site worker falls through a floor because the business owner forgot to warn the crew about severe termite damage in the building
  • A guest is attacked by a dog that showed signs of viciousness in the past
  • A customer of a retail establishment slips and falls on snow and ice that has accumulated on the sidewalk owned and maintained by the store

Parts Of A Premises Liability Claim

For Your Slip, Trip And Fall Claim To Succeed, You Must Be Able To Prove That:

  • The defendant owned, maintained and/or controlled the property at the time you were injured there
  • The owner or landlord was negligent; that is, the business failed to take reasonable steps to ensure that the property was safe or to warn you of dangerous conditions on the property (If you were a trespasser on the property at the time of your injury, you have a tougher hurdle to overcome under Pennsylvania law, in that you must prove that the landowner was guilty of wanton or willful misconduct)
  • The defendant’s negligence was the factual and legal cause of your injuries
  • You suffered real harm as a direct result of your injuries, which can include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and diminished earning capacity
