Holding Property Owners Accountable For Their Negligent Actions
Premises liability claims are brought against commercial and residential property owners for failing to take appropriate measures in preventing accidents on their property. Our Allegheny County, PA personal injury attorneys have experience proving fault in a wide range of premises liability claims, including:
- Snow and ice accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Trip-and-fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Assaults from inadequate security measures
When property owners fail to maintain a safe premise, we are fully prepared to prove fault and help accident victims secure maximum compensation for any medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has premises liability laws in place due to the severe winter weather. It is the “hills and ridges” doctrine. It protects landowners from liability for generally hazardous and slick conditions resulting from snow and ice where the owner has not permitted the ice and snow to unreasonably accumulate in ridges and elevations. What this does is makes slip and fall claims tougher as if you need to pursue damages or economic losses for a fall on an ice or snow covered surface our Pittsburgh slip and fall attorneys must prove3 things:
- That snow and ice had accumulated on the sidewalk in ridges or elevations of such size and character as to unreasonably obstruct travel and constitute a danger to pedestrians traveling thereon;
- That the property owner had notice, either actual or constructive, of the existence of such condition;
- That it was the dangerous accumulation of snow and ice which caused the plaintiff to fall.
