When we are invited onto someone else’s property, especially if that property is a place of business, we expect to be safe on the premises. We expect the property owners (or possessors, such as tenants) to inspect their property, maintain it in a reasonably safe condition, and warn us about dangerous conditions that may cause us harm.
If you were injured in an incident that happened on someone else’s property, and you believe that your injuries were caused by the negligence of the property’s owner, you should discuss your situation with an experienced personal injury attorney. If, for example, you were hurt in a slip-and-fall incident, tripped on unsafe or poorly lit stairs, or suffered a dog bite or other type of attack, you may be able to seek compensation for your medical bills, your pain and suffering, wages that you lost as a result of your injury, and more. Even if you were partly at fault, you may be compensated for at least part of the harm that you suffered from the injury.
In addition, Pennsylvania law offers greater protection to children who are injured on someone else’s property, though the “attractive nuisance” doctrine. If your child was injured in such circumstances, you may be able to claim compensation on the child’s behalf.
Of course, not every injury is caused by negligence. An attorney can help you investigate the circumstances of your case, identify who might be legally responsible, and fight for your interests, using professional negotiation and advocacy skills.
