Harrisburg  Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Premises liability claims in Central and Western Pennsylvania

Whether entering a store, government building or friend’s home, you expect the construction and maintenance to be solid and safe. The law requires owners and possessors of the property to exercise care and warn you of risks. If you have slipped, tripped or fallen, the attorneys of The Moyles Law Firm in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg can recover the compensation you deserve for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and diminished future earning capacity when you are injured because of:

  • Disrepair
  • Construction debris
  • Failure to warn of hazards
  • Ice and water accumulation
  • Inadequate security
  • Poor design
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Shoddy construction
  • Toxins, asbestos or radon
  • Unlit common areas

Responsibilities of proprietors

Municipalities, government agencies, businesses, retail companies, landlords and homeowners must abide by the law to protect their customers, guests and even trespassers from injury. A proprietor is held liable for injuries resulting from an unsafe condition that:

  • The proprietor created
  • The proprietor knew existed but failed to rectify
  • A reasonable person would have known existed

Pittsburgh personal injury attorneyJim Moyles has more than 30 years of experience helping injured clients obtain the maximum settlements and judgments for their injuries.

Injuries in stores, restaurants and other public spaces

When you shop in a mall or eat dinner in a café, you assume that the owners have taken reasonable care to ensure your safety. The invitation extended to you to purchase goods and services implies that the proprietors have taken the required precautions to protect you and have warned you of hidden dangers. As an invitee to that property, you are afforded a high level of legal protection. The level of culpability depends on:

  • The reason you entered the property
  • Your intended use of the property
  • The foreseeability that your injury could occur
  • Whether the proprietor’s efforts to fix the issue or warn you of danger was reasonable
