Premises Liability Laws in Pennsylvania
No matter where your slip and fall injury occurred, at least one party other than yourself likely bears financial liability. In Pennsylvania, premises liability laws hold property owners and managers to strict standards concerning the upkeep of their properties. Any hazardous condition that goes untended to and results in injury can lead to financial responsibility.
Even if your injury occurred on your own property, there may be liable parties other than yourself, including the homebuilder, a maintenance company, or someone else who contributed to the condition that caused your injury.
Examples of dangerous conditions on properties include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Unmarked floor objects
- Loose or missing stairs
- Loose or missing handrails
- Uneven ground or potholes
- Inadequate lighting
Any of the above situations—along with countless others—can lead to a slip and fall injury and can cause the owner or manager of the property to be financially liable.
