Have you suffered significant loss as a result of slip and fall accidents? Let’s be frank. Most people who trip or slip on a wet floor do not have to go to the emergency room. However, there are many instances in which serious injuries do result from this type of claim. If you have suffered financial or physical loss as a result of slipping and falling, our personal injury attorneys in Chester County and Delaware County, PA are available to discuss your case with you now.
When Is It Negligence?
With all slip and fall negligence claims, we must prove that the other party knew about the problem and did not fix it, therefore is responsible for your losses. For example, if there is a wet floor in a restaurant, and you fall, negligence only occurs if the manager knew about it, failed to warn you, and failed to clean it up. That’s hard to prove. However, there are many examples of very clear cases of these cases. This is where our legal team can step in and help you.
