Injury Following a Slip/Trip and Fall Accident?
Slip/Trip and fall injuries are commonplace in and around Pennsylvania and New Jersey, especially in winter months due to snow and ice. Business and home owners are responsible for ensuring their property is safe and free of hazards that may lead to a fall on their property. The vast majority of slip fall cases are due to business owners not meeting city standards to ensure their patrons are safe or home owners not shoveling their sidewalks to pedestrians.
Sometimes it is the property or sidewalk itself that is dangerous as a result of cracks and holes. Most of these conditions formed over time and the owners likely knew of their existence and chose not to fix their properties. Many times these accidents can result in serious injuries like herniated disks and fractured limbs.
