We Will be Your Legal Advocates After a Slip and Fall Injury

Property owners have a legal duty to keep their properties reasonably safe for visitors. This duty applies to private property owners, commercial properties, and to land owned by the government. This duty is known as premises liability.

If you are injured due to hazardous conditions on someone else's property, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. Premises liability cases can be complex, and the property owner's insurance company will often fight strenuously to prevent any payout to the injury victim.

With help from an experienced attorney, however, you may improve your chances of receiving a fair financial settlement after an injury caused by hazardous conditions on property owned by another person, a company or a government entity.

From offices in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, the law firm of Galloway Monzo, P.C., provides high-quality legal representation to victims of premises liability accidents.

Examples of Premises Liability Accidents

The most common type of premises liability accident happens when an injury occurs due to a slip and fall. For example, a grocery store shopper slips on spilled milk, falls, and breaks her arm. Or, a customer at an auto supplies store slips on spilled oil, falls, and suffers a concussion.

Other common types of accidents that may give rise to a premises liability lawsuit include:

  • A trip and fall injury caused by a missing or broken stair handrail
  • A trip and fall injury caused by an unrepaired pothole
  • A slip and fall injury caused by an icy sidewalk

Take a Picture: One of the reasons slip and fall cases are so challenging is that it can be difficult to prove that the hazardous condition existed. Hazardous conditions can disappear quickly after a slip and fall injury accident. If you can, take a picture to document the existence of the hazardous condition.
