It seems like common sense: Owners should make their properties safe for visitors, making sure to inspect the premises for any hazards that could cause injury.
Yet every year, more than one million Americans are injured in preventable slips, trips and falls. More than 17,000 lose their lives.
Fortunately, legal resource options are available to compensate individuals for such preventable injuries.
Experienced Legal Representation
After an accident, many property owners deny responsibility, instead shifting blame to the victim. Proving liability then becomes a job for skilled attorneys and experts trained in design, engineering and building codes.
At Goodrich & Geist, P.C., personal injury claims for Pittsburgh are all that we do. We work with top-tier specialists who are specifically trained in investigating, analyzing and proving premises liability.
Construction Site Injuries
We often recover for injuries incurred on construction sites. We have represented workers who have suffered injuries from cranes, scaffolding, defective safety harnesses, or other hazardous equipment.
Our lawyers have also handled claims for members of the public who have been killed or injured due to slips-and-falls on unsafe or unsecured dangerous construction areas.
Types Of Properties Where Injuries Are Likely To Occur
Along with constructions site incidents, we have also recovered compensation for injuries on other types of property including:
- Parking lots
- Grocery stores
- Stairs and stairwells
- Malls and shopping centers
- Amusement parks
- Sporting arenas
- Swimming pools
