Pennsylvania has strict premise liability laws. If you are injured while on someone else’s property, Pennsylvania’s premise liability laws hold the property owners and managers liable. These laws require owners and managers to quickly address any dangerous condition that emerges. These laws ensure that owners take proactive steps to protect guests, including warning them about the condition and shielding them from it.
When we take your New Castle slip and fall accident and injury case, we will start by investigating your accident and determining the conditions that led to it. We will gather evidence showing that the responsible party or parties should have addressed the situation before it injured you. We will use the evidence we collect to put forward a compelling claim for damages.
