Injuries from Slips, Trips & Falls
A Williamsport Personal Injury Attorney Representing Your Needs
When a child falls, his mother may say, “watch where you are walking!”
While this is good advice, sometimes the behavior of real estate owners
and others contribute substantially to a serious fall, and there was very
little you could have done to avoid injury. In such cases, a claim for
damages can be asserted against responsible parties.
Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
There are many common, everyday occurrences that can lead to injuries.
- Uneven walkways in need of repair, which could easily have been navigated
in daylight, but become treacherous at night
- Snow and ice, which should have been removed, expose people to heightened
risk of an unavoidable slip and fall
- Broken or elevated sections of sidewalks, obscured by snow and ice, can
provide the circumstances which will eventually cause someone to fall
through no fault of their own
- Defective walkways or parking lots outside a store can easily cause an
unsuspecting customer to trip while carrying packages on the way to his car
Unfortunately, many other circumstances can also create conditions which
may cause a serious fall, and these injuries are fairly common throughout
Pennsylvania and the United States. When you’ve been hurt, make
sure you seek medical attention, document the scene of the injury, and
call our Williamsport personal injury attorney for legal assistance.
