Philadelphia Trip & Fall Accidents
As in our associated practice area, Slip And Fall Accidents, most trip and fall accidents in Philadelphia are legally defined as cases of premises liability. Property owners in Philadelphia are legally responsible for maintaining their properties, and keeping them free of hazards that may harm a visitor. And when we enter a store, shopping mall, or office building, we expect their owners to have made a safe environment for us. Unfortunately, many property owners in Philadelphia don’t hold up their end of the bargain.

Compensation In A Philadelphia Trip & Fall Accident Case
In Philadelphia trip and fall accident cases, compensation is only awarded if a property owner can be found to have acted negligently; if they knew, or should have known, that their property’s conditions presented danger to visitors. The amount and type of compensation to which you are entitled for your trip and fall accident depends on the details of your accident. Even so, there are two primary forms of compensation that our personal injury lawyers will pursue:
- Economic damages are quantifiable, hard facts like medical expenses and lost wages.
- Noneconomic damages are harder to determine, but often just as important. These may include “pain and suffering,” loss of enjoyment of life, or embarassment.
Our lawyers always seek to pursue maximum compensation, meaning that we will explore every possible avenue in securing the damages you deserve. To learn more about compensation for a trip and fall accident in Philadelphia, visit our Philadelphia Personal Injury FAQ.
