Everything You Need to Know About Premises Liability Claims in Pennsylvania

If you are someone who recently sustained injuries on someone else’s property due to their negligence, there is a very good chance you are now seeking financial compensation. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through the premises liabiltiy claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I have a valid premises liability claim?

The main indicator as to whether anyone has a valid premises liability claim is whether they can prove that they were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Of course, this is not always easy, particularly in premises liability cases. That is why you must retain the services of an experienced Pennsylvania personal injury attorney who can gather and present all of the evidence needed to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous property conditions, failed to fix them in a timely manner, and that you sustained serious injuries and incurred significant damages as a result.

What evidence will I need to prove that I was injured due to another party’s negligence?

To prove a premises liability claim, you will have to present various forms of evidence regarding the circumstances of your injuries. For example, if you were injured in a supermarket or retail store, a critical part of winning your personal injury claim is notifying the store manager and having them file a store incident report. Additionally, regardless of where you were injured, you should take pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, obtain medical documentation after being treated, and ask anyone who witnessed your accident for their name and phone number so they may corroborate your claim at a later date. Our firm can help you collect all additional evidence needed, such as security camera footage, to prove your claim.

What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Pennsylvania?

If you are injured in an accident, you must not wait any longer than two years from the date of your accident to pursue legal action against the property owner responsible. While you may wish to wait to see if your injuries heal on their own, we cannot advise you to do so, for if you do, you will most likely be time-barred from suing. Our firm can help you fight for the compensation you deserve today. All you have to do is ask.
