Attorneys For Trip And Fall Accidents

Philadelphia Trip & Fall Accidents

Similar to, 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. This includes clearing sidewalks and stairs of snow and ice, displaying warning signs of dangerous conditions, and fixing broken property like cracked or uneven stairs. When you enter a store, shopping mall, or office building, you expect the owners to have made a safe environment for you. Unfortunately, many property owners in Philadelphia don’t hold up their end of the bargain. This causes trip and fall accidents that lead to lawsuits.

The trip and fall lawyers at Philly Slip and Fall Guys are experts in premises liability and can make a case for your accident to get you the compensation you deserve.

When to Call a Philadelphia Trip and Fall Lawyer

Were you injured by dangerous conditions on a commercial property or in a private residence? If you were hurt on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. Injuries caused by hazards like broken stairs or potholes are the fault of the property owner, which falls under premises liability law. Your case will likely require the expertise of a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer with decades of experience in premises liability law. The attorneys at Philly Slip and Fall Guys have helped hundreds of trip and fall accident victims pursue the fair compensation that they deserve.

Trip And Fall Attorney Practice Areas

Hazards are everywhere and accidents can occur if proper repairs are not taken or passersby are not warned. Our team works with victims who have tripped and fallen in commercial properties and private residences. Our Philadelphia trip and fall accident practice’s expertise includes these areas:


When roads and sidewalks deteriorate, potholes form as hazards for walkers. Whether potholes are formed from weather or foot traffic, the property owner has a responsibility to warn pedestrians of danger or make repairs in a reasonable timeframe.  Determining the property owner is vital for the case. If you had a trip and fall accident in a pothole, contact a trip and fall lawyer.

Parking Lots

Many victims of parking lot trip and fall accidents believe they cannot receive compensation for their injuries. Parking lots are generally owned by businesses and private citizens. It is their responsibility to ensure safe walking for their customers. Some hazards include potholes, uneven surfaces, and inadequate lighting. Our team has handled cases of trip and fall accidents in parking lots for 30 years. We can help get you compensation for your injuries.

Shopping Malls or Shopping Centers

Shopping malls and centers have tripping hazards everywhere. Each business within the mall or shopping center must make sure their stores are safe for their customers. Some hazards that can lead to a trip and fall in a shopping mall or shopping center include broken steps and handrails, escalator malfunctions, unsecured electrical cords, spilled liquids, and fallen merchandise. Our team can help determine the at-fault party and get you compensation.

Staircases or Steps

Staircases and steps require upkeep to ensure safe conditions for users. Loose handrails, holey carpets, and inadequate lighting can cause users to trip and fall. Fire escapes and old staircases can collapse or move unexpectedly, causing walkers to get injured. If you were a victim of a trip and fall accident on staircases or steps, call our team as soon as possible.

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. There are two primary forms of compensation that our personal injury lawyers will pursue:

  1. Economic damages that are quantifiable like medical expenses and lost wages.
  2. Non-economic damages are harder to determine but are just as important. These may include “pain and suffering,” loss of enjoyment of life, or embarrassment.

Our trip and fall lawyers always pursue maximum compensation, meaning that we will explore every possible avenue to secure the damages you deserve. To learn more about compensation for a trip and fall accident in Philadelphia, visit our Philadelphia Personal Injury FAQ.
