It's always surprising to have your feet swept out from under you.
In just a fraction of a second, you can sustain a serious injury in a slip and fall accident. If you think the fall is the result of a property owner’s irresponsibility, then you need to get yourself a good lawyer. Just as we all have a responsibility to exercise caution while walking on slippery surfaces, property owners have a responsibility to keep their property safe. Any type of object or condition that prohibits even the most cautious person from staying on their feet may warrant compensation for the following:
- Pain and suffering (past and future)
- Medical expenses (past, present and future)
- Wage loss
- Loss of enjoyment of life and/or emotional distress
- Loss of future earning capacity
In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for filing a slip and fall lawsuit is generally two years. However, the sooner you step foot in our office, the better.
