Not all slip-and-fall accidents in Pennsylvania automatically turn into civil lawsuits. In order to pursue compensation through civil litigation, the injured victim will have to prove that the property owner’s or some other individual’s or entity’s negligence played a part in the accident. This process is not always easy and can be rather challenging.
There are a number of questions that must be asked following a slip-and-fall accident. What caused the victim to fall? Did a dangerous or hazardous condition on the property contribute to the crash? Was the owner or property manager aware of the hazardous condition? Were there warning signs posted? Did the property owner fail to fix the dangerous condition in a timely manner? Could the accident have been prevented? Did the victim suffer an injury or loss in the accident?
Receiving fair compensation for a Pennsylvania slip-and-fall accident is difficult because it must be proven that the accident resulted from someone’s negligence. In cases where negligence played a part in the accident, compensation may be available for the injured victim through civil litigation. Damages that may be covered by a premises liability claim include medical bills, past and future suffering, cost of physical therapy, lost wages, and more.
