Philadelphia Premises Liability Lawyer

Duty of Care by Property Owners in Pennsylvania

Under Pennsylvania premises liability law, property owners have a duty of care to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe for employees, customers, guests, and others. If there is a potential safety hazard present, they are expected to address it in a timely manner. When property owners fail to keep their area safe, serious personal injury may result and injured victims may be able to pursue monetary damages through a premises liability claim.

Safety hazards that have the potential for causing personal injury include:

  • Surfaces that are slippery due to spills, rain, snow, or ice
  • Uneven and poorly maintained sidewalks and walkways
  • Loose carpet
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Missing handrails on stairways
  • Inadequate security measures

The Statute of Limitations for Premises Liability Injuries

From broken bones to head trauma, there are numerous injuries that can result from safety hazards. Whether you suffered injury at a private residence, place of business, or even on government property, you may have cause to take legal action and hold the owner or manager financially responsible for medical expenses, lost wages at work, and more. It is important to remember that, due to a statute of limitations in Pennsylvania, victims must file a claim within two years from the date of the accident.
