Most Experienced Lawyers in Philadelphia for Slip & Fall Injury Cases
The hazards associated with day to day life lead to unfortunate slip and fall injuries every day in the United States, often resulting in serious back, neck, leg, and brain injuries. In fact, these types of injuries are the second leading cause of injury in the United States after motor vehicle accidents. In an urban area like Philadelphia, these accidents can be extremely prevalent. There are two common varieties of slip and fall injuries, same-level falls and elevated falls. A same-level fall occurs when the individual trips on a relatively level surface while an elevated fall occurs when an individual falls from a high surface such as stairs or a ladder. More often than not, both varieties of these slip and fall accidents are a result of insufficient lighting, unsafe surfaces, or general negligence by the property’s owner. These unnecessary falls can be severely debilitating, often requiring serious medical care and creating an inability to work. As a result of these physical, mental, and financial damages, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, injury, and grief. Even if you believe that you were at fault, you may still be entitled to financial compensation and should thus contact an attorney immediately. It is extremely important to keep a record of your injuries including any workdays or social occasions you are forced to miss as a result of your accident. Your economic and non-economic costs as a result of the accident will form the basis for your potential recovery.
