Man That Has Slipped and Fallen to Ground

Proving Liability in Slip & Fall Cases

Although slip and fall cases may seem clear, proving liability can be much more complicated than you would expect. The property owner and the injured person can both have varying degrees of responsibility for injuries sustained in a fall. Property owners are responsible for keeping their properties safe. However, each person also has a responsibility to watch where he or she is going.

Important factors in premises liability cases include:

  • The reason that you were on the property
  • If the owner knew or should have known that the dangerous condition existed
  • How long the dangerous condition existed
  • Hidden ownership entities

What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

There are a few things you should do after an injury. Ideally, an accident report should be completed with relevant information and any witnesses to the incident. You should also:

  • Collect the names and contact information of any witnesses
  • Document the scene
  • Take pictures.

If you were injured on someone else’s property due to a dangerous condition, it is important to contact an experienced attorney to advise you of your legal options.

Should I Get a Lawyer for My Slip and Fall Claim?

While a slip and fall claim may seem fairly straightforward, you may want to consider hiring a lawyer to represent you for the following reasons:

  1. You may be facing a legal team on the other side if your accident occurred at a business or public building; having a lawyer can help ensure that you are evenly matched as far as legal experience is concerned
  2. A lawyer can help you establish fault in the accident; we can help investigate the scene of the accident and secure evidence that the slip and fall really was a result of someone else's negligence
  3. We can help you navigate the injury claim and court process
  4. A slip and fall lawyer can help you get the settlement that you deserve; don't risk getting less compensation than you need to cover your expenses, let us fight for you!

Slip and Fall Statute of Limitations

Pennsylvania has a two-year statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims, and the statute of limitations may be shorter for injuries on public property. For this reason, you should not wait to contact an attorney.

Our slip and fall attorneys in Luzerne County can provide an accurate assessment of your claim and deal with the property owner and insurance carriers to help you pursue maximum compensation for your injuries.

If you were injured on another person’s property, please call (570) 405-9953 to discuss your case with an attorney.

Client Testimonials

Real People. Real Experiences
  • “A trusted lawyer who is always there.”

    I have been nothing but completely satisfied and impressed with Chris and his staff at the Slusser Law Firm for years. I have the privilege of working with them on Professional level as a Chairman of a sewer authority who was left with a bad taste in my mouth for lawyers because of our past solicitor who truly was not cost effective and responsible to fact that we as an authority needed to be mindful of our spending in order to keep our rates down for our elderly population of rate payers.

    I interviewed many possible candidates to replace said solicitor and Chris by far stood out to me because of his professionalism and understanding to what we needed and our demographics as an area made up of elderly rate payers living on fixed incomes. I am pleased to say it was one of the best moves we made and pleased to say we as an Authority are going on 8 plus years with Chris and his team guiding us legally and look forward to many more years working with them.

    On a personal level I have now a trusted lawyer who is always there to give guidance in buying property or contract review and Is trusted so much I referred my Father to him for guidance after my Mother passed.

  • “Many friends suggested I contact the Slusser Law Firm. I am glad I did.”

    When I was injured in a motorcycle accident while driving through a construction zone, many friends suggested I contact the Slusser Law Firm. I am glad I did. Attorneys Chris Slusser and John Solt came to visit me in the hospital. The Slusser Law Firm filed suit on my behalf.

    Through the long recovery and rehabilitation process Attorneys Slusser and Solt and the team investigated, hired experts, took depositions and kept me informed of everything along the way. In the end, they secured me a cash settlement that has helped transform my life. Thank you to everyone at the firm for all your tireless work and for believing in my case.
