Premises Liability

Establishing liability in Pennsylvania

Events that are caused by defective or dangerous property inside or outside a building are called premises liability incidents. These accidents can take place at commercial buildings, at private residences, or on public property including parks, streets, or public transportation.

When you have been hurt because of the negligence or recklessness of a property owner, you may get compensation for your injuries from them. In order to collect on an injury claim in Pennsylvania, you must prove that the property owner or other responsible party failed to exercise reasonable care to prevent the injury by showing that certain conditions apply:

  • The responsible individual or business failed to carry out the duty they owed you to help their property safe
  • You were injured
  • Your injury was caused by their failure

I have helped numerous clients with serious personal injuries to establish these conditions and win significant awards of damages based on premises liability. Contact me for a free consultation on the particulars of your case.

Dangerous conditions on premises

Premises can be deemed dangerous for many reasons, including faulty design, shoddy construction or building materials, poor maintenance, dangerous clutter, or inadequate safety measures. There are a lot of dangerous conditions and events on premises that can lead to injuries:

  • Falling Objects
