Proving Liability for Slip & Fall Accidents in Lancaster

Pennsylvania is a comparative negligence state, which means that in order for someone to file a personal injury claim, they can't be more than 50% at fault for their injuries. This gives companies and other defendants the opportunity to pass unfair blame onto you in order to reduce the compensation they pay you, or to try getting your claim denied altogether.

One of the first steps in establishing a strong premises liability claim then is proving that the victim was a guest in a home, a customer, an employee on a worksite, etc., someone to whom the property owner or manager owed a duty of care, and not some trespasser.

Secondly, it’s critical to prove that the slip and fall was something that the property owner could have prevented. This means establishing the fact that the slip and fall hazard was something the property owner knew about (or should have known about), and that the property owner should have taken measures to protect people from this foreseeable slip and fall hazard, whether by providing repairs, placing warning signs, and so forth. To bring everything together, your lawyer would connect the property owner’s negligence, their failure to resolve the hazard, as the direct cause of your injuries.
