Slip and Fall Attorneys

Serving Pennsylvania & New Jersey
Slip & Falls

Pedestrians commonly walk along or on someone else’s property with the reasonable belief that they are safe. If there is a hazard present, a passer-by may become the victim of a slip and fall accident. If you are injured on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability claim. A person may be able to receive compensation for the injuries and losses sustained as a result of the accident. It is important to retain the services of our slip and fall attorneys with the experience and resources to represent your interests. If you have been the victim of a slip and fall accident, contact Friedman Schuman today.

Sidewalk Injuries– When a pedestrian walks down a sidewalk, rarely do they believe that they may encounter hazardous conditions. Unfortunately, sidewalk accidents happen quite frequently, often at no fault of the pedestrian. If you were seriously injured due to dangerous conditions on a sidewalk, you may be able to bring a lawsuit to recover damages.

Parking Lot Injuries- Most people don’t think of parking lots as particularly dangerous. When property owners neglect the conditions of their parking lots, they put others at risk. This risk can result in serious injury. If you are injured in a parking lot, you may be unsure who should be held responsible. If you were injured in a parking lot accident, you may be faced with costly medical expenses, lost wages, and lifelong consequences.

Supermarket Injuries- Trips to the supermarket are a part of everyday life. Rarely does one consider that they may be the subject of an accident while buying groceries. However, thousands of people are injured in supermarkets each year. If a supermarket’s staff exhibits negligence, shoppers can easily become injured. The seriousness of an injury in a supermarket can be dependent on a number of different factors. However, any degree of injury can result in unexpected medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

Snow and Ice Injuries- The long winter months in Pennsylvania can bring on snow and ice storms. In these situations, property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their walkways, driveways, sidewalks, and parking lots are free and clear of hazards. Unfortunately, if a property owner fails to tend to his or her property after a storm, it can lead to dangerous conditions for pedestrians. Injuries resulting from slip and falls in snowy or icy conditions can result in serious injuries, costly medical bills, and lifelong consequences.

Apartment Injuries- Apartment living may be an attractive option for many people. Being able to call on a landlord is a wonderful thing. A landlord has a responsibility to keep a tenant’s apartment safe and inhabitable. When a landlord is informed of a potential hazard, it is his or her responsibility to fix the issue in a timely manner. Unfortunately, when a landlord fails to take care of a problem, a tenant’s safety may be at risk. If a tenant sustains a serious injury due to a hazard in an apartment, the landlord may be liable.
