Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

A slip and fall accident takes place when an individual trips, falls or slips on another person’s property and suffers an injury. The affected party can file an accident claim when the injuries from the slip and fall result from a hazardous condition that the manager or owner of the property should have taken care of. Slip and fall accident claims can be complicated because a successful claim hinges on the affected individual’s ability to prove multiple elements with strong supporting evidence.

Consulting with a Pennsylvania slip and fall accident attorney is critical if you’ve sustained injuries on another person’s property and want to file a claim. Additional reasons to work with a lawyer for your slip and fall case include the following:

  • The involvement of a slip and fall accident attorney can help you gain the involved property owner’s attention.
  • A lawyer has the resources and experience needed to prove the property owner’s liability in a slip and fall accident case.
  • A personal injury attorney is familiar with the process of proving damages in a slip and fall case.

The Process of Proving Negligence After a Slip and Fall Accident

When a person is injured in a slip and fall accident due to another party’s negligence, pursuing legal action may be necessary. By filing a personal claim, the injured party must prove negligence with evidence showing that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the cause of the accident.

Evidence to prove negligence can include medical documentation of the injuries, pictures or videos of the hazard and witnesses to the incident. If successful, the injured party may recover compensation for any physical, emotional and financial damages incurred from the slip and fall.

Proving negligence is challenging, making it important to consider the services of an experienced Pennsylvania personal injury attorney. Spear Greenfield has been in business for over 30 years and has a proven success record in personal injury cases. We have experience navigating clients through the legal process of examining their personal injury claim for a slip and fall and securing injury compensation.
