Slip and Fall

The winter months in Pennsylvania bring an increased risk for slip and fall incidents. Icy walkways, wet stairs and frozen roof gutters pose serious hazards, and it’s often the responsibility of property owners to minimize them and protect their visitors.

Slip and fall accidents injure hundreds of thousands of people every year. In fact, more than 800,000 people are hospitalized each year after a fall, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One in five falls causes a serious injury like head trauma.

Preventing Slip and Fall Injuries Caused by Snow and Ice: Property Owners’ Responsibility

When wintry conditions occur, property owners owe their visitors a duty of care to identify possible hazards and reasonably maintain safety on their property. Proper maintenance may mean clearing walkways, stairs, and other foot traffic areas on the premises, as well as regularly inspecting and clearing snow and ice on the roof.

Neglectful property owners let injuries happen when they fail to prevent dangerous ice accumulation. Still, proving negligence in a weather-related slip and fall incident is often a complex process. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate fall incidents and identify the cause of their client’s injuries. They then use that information in a legal action to seek justice and compensation for injuries that should not have happened.
