Slip-And-Fall And Other Premises Liability Issues

Property owners and residents have a general obligation to provide a reasonably safe environment to visitors, customers and employees. This means that owners, tenants and residents face premises liability issues if a delivery person slips and falls on an icy sidewalk or a customer of a business is injured after tripping because of a poorly marked obstacle. A bar owner may even be liable if one patron attacks another.

How We Help Our Clients

The lawyers at Gordon & Dennison have extensive experience handling personal injury cases, either settled before trial or litigated in court. Our experience and depth of knowledge in this area of law make us a tremendous asset to clients here in Western Pennsylvania. We all know how the ice and bad weather can lead to treacherous slip-and-fall injuries, but we also focus on negligent behavior on the part of responsible parties and hold them accountable.

The defense in these cases may try to shift the blame onto you, the victim, and thereby pay a smaller amount of compensation, so it is crucial to retain an attorney who will aggressively protect your legal rights.

You Have A Right To Compensation

Victims may be compensated for:

  • Medical bills to aid in recovery
  • Loss of current and future income because of injury
  • Damage to property
  • Loss of life

It Is Best To Contact Us Immediately

There are time limits for filing a claim. While these vary according to the incident, the best course of action is to contact a lawyer as soon as possible, particularly when the injury is severe. Because the details of the injury will still be fresh in the minds of victims and witnesses, swift action enables us to better build a strong case in your favor.
