Dangerous Property Blamed For Mans Slip And Fall

March 18, 2016

Property owners in Pennsylvania are responsible for making sure that their premises are safe enough for visitors to use. In one case in a different state, the property owner allegedly failed to do this, causing an individual to suffer an injury in a slip-and-fall accident. The injured party recently sued the property owner, alleging dangerous property.

According to the civil suit, a man was at the property to visit someone. He then suddenly slipped on what he said was black ice. The man reportedly struck the ground and suffered serious and permanent injuries as a result.

The man asserted that the property owner did not properly keep up the parking lot, even though the owner had a duty to keep the property safe. The property owner also did not provide a surface that was slip-resistant, and the owner did not warn visitors about the parking lot’s dangerous condition. The company is, furthermore, blamed for not providing ice removal services in an effort to keep ice from accumulating.

The man said he suffered injuries in the fall, as well as both future and past pain and suffering. He has also allegedly suffered the loss of the enjoyment of life, and he has incurred medical expenses. He said he expects himself to struggle to perform his daily activities of living and has suffered disability, as well as the loss of a normal life. Anyone in Pennsylvania who has been injured on dangerous property has the right to seek damages through a premises liability suit.

BIG NUMBERS AND DOLLAR SIGNS CAN’T TELL YOU WHETHER A LAW FIRM IS RIGHT FOR YOU
