These laws apply to accidents on commercial and residential properties. A Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer will evaluate your case to determine whether you can claim compensation for your injuries.

Our Philadelphia-based law firm specializes in slip and fall cases and fighting for our clients’ rights. Slip and fall accidents can range from minor trips on uneven pavement to major falls on icy sidewalks. Many of our clients’ injuries occur on public, commercial property in Philadelphia. These accidents are common in locations like Old City and Center City, where the sidewalks get slippery during winter weather. Popular, historic areas like Chestnut Stree and Market Street may become dangerous for pedestrians when they freeze during icy conditions.

We also work with individuals who have been injured on the property of the City of Philadelphia. This includes courthouses, tax offices, and other municipal buildings. Slip and fall accidents can happen in public spaces like supermarkets, retail stores, and commercial offices. Injuries in these buildings can be caused by unmarked spills or malfunctioning escalators and elevators. Apartment building property managers can be held responsible for slip and fall injuries within common areas. Other locations that are prone to slip and fall accidents include gyms, spas, health clubs, and other fitness facilities.

If your slip and fall injury occurred at your place of work, workers’ compensation insurance should cover your claim. Notify your employer immediately and file an injury report.

  • Whiplash
  • Neck pain
  • Brain trauma

How a Slip and Fall Lawyer Can Help

If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, our attorneys can help you recover the compensation you deserve. We will complete a free evaluation of your case to determine what happened and who is liable. During this assessment, we will explore photo evidence, witness statements, medical reports, and other supporting documentation. We use this information to back up your claim against the liable party and insurance companies. Some insurance companies may try to reduce the settlement amount, but we negotiate with payers to get fair compensation for your damages.

Damages from slip and fall accidents come in different forms. The main types of financial damages include medical expenses and physical therapy costs. Some accident victims may be unable to work after their injuries, resulting in a loss of earnings. Depending on the extent of your injuries, we can fight for compensation for past, present, and future pain and suffering caused by your accident. In cases where the property owner acted with gross negligence, we will include exemplary or punitive damages in your claim. These damages are used to hold the property owner responsible for their actions and discourage future negligence.

If the property owner or insurance company is unwilling to negotiate, our team can take your case to court. We will provide guidance for navigating the legal system and apply our specialized knowledge to craft a strong defense for your claim. We will gather evidence from you and local law enforcement to prove the property owner’s negligence and liability. After hearing the arguments of both sides, the court will then decide whether to grant compensation for your injuries.

My experience with the law office was exceptional. From the amazing staff, paralegals and my attorney Keith Kofsky. Mr. Kofsky worked tirelessly on my case for two years. He's experienced, poised, excellent communication skills and one great negotiator. He had a way of explaining things to me that kept me calm during the process. Keith also keeps his word and is very involved with his clients and cases. We had a very favorable outcome and I can't thank him enough. So Keith once again, thank you very much.
Reaching out to a lawyer, coming from another state, not knowing if they are going to fight for you, I found Keith Kofsky and I was nervous as I had never dealt with a lawsuit before. Keith stepped in as if he were my big brother. As the year went on we had plenty of meetings, all to assure me that we had a case and there were no worries. Down to the last months, difficulties arose. The defendant was not willing to satisfy my case. Keith stepped in as he did all along, and heard what the defendant did not, which helped close out the case. He will go the extra mile for you. Thank you Keith!. Always, Gaynell Allen.
The Philly Slip & Fall Guys has been amazing. Keith was very knowledgeable and had a lot of patience with me. I felt very confident on him and his team as they helped my case. I highly recommend this law firm with anyone who’s been injured from a pothole.
