Slip, Trip, & Fall Accidents
Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyer With 35+ Years of Experience
Under Pennsylvania law, residential homeowners, commercial property owners, and even those managing city buildings are expected to make sure that their area is kept reasonably safe. This means that safety hazards should be addressed and fixed or closed off in a timely manner. Unfortunately, not all property owners maintain their premises in this manner and end up putting residents, visitors, customers, and the public at risk.
What to Do Following an Accident
If you or a loved one have suffered an injury due to a slip, trip, or fall accident on another's property, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to recover damages. Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyer at Piscitello Law has nearly 35 years of experience, has helped thousands of clients successfully pursue compensation, and is prepared to start work on your case immediately.
Some of the most important steps to take following a slip, trip, or fall accident include:
- Record the time and date that the incident took place.
- If possible, contact the establishment and ask to file an incident report, and obtain a copy for yourself.
- Record the names, contact information, and statements of any witnesses that were present.
- Photograph the area and the elements that were involved in the incident.
- Seek immediate medical treatment and keep detailed documentation of your medical records.
- Retain the services of an experienced Philadelphia personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
