Almost Any Type of Bucks County, PA Fall May Support Legal Action
Under Pennsylvania law, property owners and occupiers have an obligation to keep guests, customers, visitors, and others who are lawfully on the property free from harm. While not all accidents can be prevented, many can. When a property owner fails to uphold their end of the bargain, and you suffer an injury, you may be able to take legal action against them and pursue compensation for your medical bills and other related expenses.
Slips, trips, and falls can have many different causes, and some of them can support a negligence case if we can show the owner or occupier acted negligently. Some common causes of falls we encounter in handling these cases include:
- Broken or cracked concrete, or other maintenance issues
- Holes in the ground, including holes in grassy areas or potholes in asphalt
- Spills, especially in restaurants and grocery stores
- Steep sloping or steps without adequate warning
- Snow or ice, or rainwater that has been tracked inside
- Rolled or torn carpet
- Failure to apply slip-resistant floor coverings or tape to slick areas
Many people think of only scrapes and bruises when they consider slip and fall injuries, but at Cordisco & Saile LLC, we know the cost of this type of accident. Injuries may be severe, even leading to lifelong impairments. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones can all result. Even when injuries are relatively minor, the cost of medical care, missed work, and other expenses add up quickly.
Our slip and fall attorneys can pursue a payout based on your relevant losses and expenses. We can also handle cases in a number of other practice areas.
Cordisco & Saile LLC Can Try to Hold the Property Owner Liable on Your Behalf
A premises liability slip and fall attorney from Cordisco & Saile LLC can identify the potentially negligent party and build a case to show they acted in a way that put you in danger. We know what it takes to have a valid slip and fall case and can review the facts of your accident to determine if you have a strong enough case to warrant taking legal action. We can generally try to hold a property owner or occupier liable if we have evidence to prove they:
- Created the danger that caused your fall.
- Knew about the danger and failed to repair it, adequately warn you about it, or otherwise address it.
- Should have known about the danger.
It is important to note that the property owner themselves does not have to be directly aware of a hazard. For example, perhaps you fell because of spilled coffee in a local Bucks County diner one morning.
The owner might not be at work yet, but surveillance video showed a server stepped over the spill for more than half an hour before you fell. In this case, the server knew or should have known about the spill, so the owner of the diner would likely be liable.
