The Philly personal injury law firm of Rand Spear, recently created a short video to educate Pennsylvanians about slip and fall accidents, what they are, and why you need an experienced slip and fall attorney in your corner when they happen to you.
With fall underway and winter around the corner, Pennsylvania residents are in for ice, snow, and lots of slippery conditions. While slip and fall accidents can occur anytime, the cold, wet conditions can make them much more frequent.
In the video, Philadelphia injury lawyer Jeremy M. Weitz explains that slip and fall accidents are just that – an accident that happens when a person slips and falls, or trips and falls, and sustains an injury due to the fall. These accidents sometimes occur indoors, for example in someone else’s home, retail businesses, schools, casinos, hospitals, and many other places. They also may occur outdoors on someone else’s property, parking lots, sidewalks, stairs, or other outdoor areas.
In order to prove a slip and fall case and be able to receive compensation for damages, it must be shown that the property owner, tenant, or other party who is responsible for the property was negligent in some way, and that the accident and the injuries sustained were a result of that negligence.
When a slip and fall accident happens, Mr. Weitz goes on to explain, “simply because you fall on somebody’s property, doesn’t mean you are entitled to compensation. That’s why you need an experienced attorney in your corner – to prove that the reason you fell, the reason why you slipped, the reason why you tripped, and the reason why you sustained your injuries, was because of the negligence of the property owner, or of the person in control of the property.”
