Slip & Fall Making Your Justice Possible

Pittsburgh Slip & Fall Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents are no joke, and they can occur wherever safety hazards and dangerous property conditions exist. These types of falls can result in injuries such as sprains, dislocations, cuts and bruises, broken bones, concussions and other serious brain injuries, and spinal cord damage. A slip and fall accident can put you in the emergency room or in an extended stay at the hospital, leaving you unable to work while in pain. You may be left with expensive medical bills for all kinds of treatment, including rehabilitation remedies like lengthy physical therapy programs.

When these injuries are caused by the negligence of a private or public property owner who has failed to take reasonable precautions to provide a safe environment, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. These types of cases fall under “premises liability” law, which holds property owners accountable for preventable injuries to visitors. Kontos Mengine Killion & Hassen can determine if you have a valid injury claim and take action on your behalf in pursuing maximum compensation for your injuries and damages.

Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

Under premises liability law, a property owner owes you a duty of care to keep their premises clear of safety hazards or provide adequate warnings about such hazards until they can be remedied or repaired. This duty of care applies to legitimate visitors to the property, including customers, patrons, clients, service personnel, and other invitees. If this duty of care is violated and someone is injured, these owners and businesses may be held responsible in an injury claim.

Slip and fall accidents can be caused by any type of hazard or defect that a property owner knew about or should have known about, and failed to fix. They can occur in all kinds of places, including grocery stores, schools, hotels, retail outlets, office buildings, restaurants, bars, sports arenas, apartment complexes, parking lots, malls, playgrounds, theaters, and more.

These hazards can include the following:

  • Wet, slick, oily, or otherwise slippery floors
  • Uneven floors, sidewalks, or pavements
  • Potholes in parking lots or structures
  • Poor or missing lighting
  • Violations of building or health codes, such as rickety stairs, decks, or balconies, or defective playground equipment
  • Swimming pools that are unsupervised or lack adequate fencing or gates
