Slip and Fall Injuries in Mount Lebanon, PA
Falls are a leading cause of death and severe injuries among all ages, but especially the elderly and young children. If you were severely injured in a slip and fall accident, you are not alone. Thousands of people in Pennsylvania and across the country every year have their lives changed in an instant when they fall and injure themselves.
Perhaps believing that their slip and fall injury resulted from their own clumsiness or lack of care, many victims do not bother to contact a lawyer or pursue compensation. Even if you cannot come up with another party who might be partly or fully liable for your injury, there is a good chance that we can. Our job is to investigate your slip and fall injury, gather evidence both from the scene and from other sources, identify all potentially liable parties, and pursue compensation from them and their insurance companies.
It is worth your time to give us a call and receive a free, no-obligation case evaluation from a Mount Lebanon slip and fall injury lawyer. The only thing you have to lose is your time – remember, we do not charge a fee until you get paid. You potentially stand to gain a lot of well-deserved compensation.
Causes of Slip and Fall Injuries
Falls occur for a number of reasons, many of them not the fault of the injured party. No matter where your injury occurred, who was there, or what you believe caused it, you may be eligible for compensation, and we can help.
Some of the most common causes of slip and fall injuries include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Loose or missing stairs
- Loose or missing handrails
- Uneven pavement
- Unstable terrain (e.g., gravel, sand, dirt)
- Poor lighting or visibility
- Knocked down by another person (either intentionally or unintentionally)
- This list is not exhaustive, as there are endless ways one can find themselves the victim of a slip and fall injury.

Residential and Commercial Property Injuries
Berger and Green can help you pursue compensation for your Mount Lebanon slip and fall injury whether it occurred on residential or commercial property. No matter the property type, Pennsylvania’s premises liability laws are largely the same – they put the onus on the property owner or manager for fall hazards, and not on the visitor or guest, to ensure that the property is safe and free from hazardous conditions. Even if you believe the circumstances surrounding your fall were not the fault of anyone but yourself, these liability laws are expansive and cover more than most people realize. There is a good chance the owner or manager bears at least partial liability.
Residential property includes the following and more:
- Apartment buildings
- Mobile homes
- Manufactured homes
Examples of commercial property include:
- Office buildings
- Strip malls
- Indoor malls
- Retail stores
- Grocery stores
- Bars and clubs
- Bowling alleys
- Parking garages
The Statute of Limitations
Pennsylvania typically has a two-year statute of limitations on slip and fall injury lawsuits, but this timeline can vary based on many factors, so it is critical to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible after your injury. If you allow the statute of limitations to expire, your case might get time-barred, meaning you will no longer be eligible to pursue compensation, no matter how strong of a case you might have.
If we need to, Berger and Green can file a lawsuit to keep the statute from expiring on your claim. To receive a free consultation with a member of our team, call us now at (412) 661-1400.
