Premises Liability/Slip and Falls from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware

Homeowners and business owners (this includes landlords) have a legal responsibility to maintain safe premises. If visitors or the public are injured due to defective or hazardous conditions, the owners may be held liable.

Whether you have suffered a slip-and-fall injury, or any other type of personal injury due to a property owner’s negligence, you may have a legitimate premises liability claim.

Pennsylvania laws pertaining to premises liability are complex, and it is best to hire an experienced premises liability attorney familiar with these laws.

Premises accidents can happen anywhere, at anytime, and have a variety of causes, such as:

  • Snowy, icy, or uneven sidewalks
  • Defective or inadequate lighting
  • Missing handrails
  • Negligent security/assault & battery
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Defective design
  • Unsupervised swimming pools
  • Falling objects
  • Dog bites
  • Food poisoning

Slip-and-fall accidents occur when the ground or flooring on public or private property is slippery, uneven or unbalanced, or when there are obstructions in a pathway.

For example, a pedestrian may trip over an uneven sidewalk, a pathway with holes in it, an unmarked curb, poorly lit stairs and walkways, wrinkled carpet, or objects littering the ground.

When the floor or ground is slippery, it can also pose a hazard to pedestrians.

Ice, snow, spilled liquids, oil and housecleaning liquids are among the substances property owners should monitor to prevent personal injury to visitors.
