Learn More About Slip and Falls

Slip and fall accidents are very common in Philadelphia and Cherry Hill and can take place in a number of settings. They can occur in public while walking down a sidewalk or inside a commercial facility like a restaurant, hotel or even a bank. These accidents may seem relatively innocent at first glance, but our experience in personal injury law has taught us that slip and falls are rarely ever just “accidents.”

A slip and fall is often the result of negligence on the property owner or manager’s part, such as failing to clean up liquid spills, failing to fix torn carpeting and several others. Owners and managers have a responsibility to keep their properties in good and working condition and should be well aware of any mishaps that may lead to accidents and injuries. If these hazardous conditions are ignored and result in a slip or trip and fall accident, then those responsible may be held liable for damages to the victim.
