Allentown Slip & Fall Attorney

For some, a slip and fall accident can be nothing more than a minor embarrassment, perhaps bruising one’s ego and causing a sore bottom the following morning. For others, however, a slip and fall can be a catastrophic incident that leads to serious–and even fatal–injuries.

When a slip and fall accident results in severe injuries, understanding your right to compensation is important. At the law offices of van der Veen, Hartshorn and Levin, our Allentown slip & fall attorneys are confident in our ability to provide you with the superior legal representation you deserve. Call us today to learn how we can help.

Top Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Most serious slip and fall accidents are caused by dangerous conditions on a property. These conditions may exist in the workplace, at a private business, in a public area, or in a residential home. Examples of dangerous conditions that lead to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Broken stairs;
  • Defective elevators and escalators;
  • Torn carpet;
  • Uneven walking surfaces;
  • Broken railings;
  • Icy or wet surfaces;
  • Spills of food and other substances;
  • Holes and depressions;
  • Objects in walking areas; and
  • More.

Injuries from a Slip and Fall

Slip and fall accidents have the potential to result in serious injuries. Traumatic brain injuries, back and neck injuries, and bone fracture injuries are all common. Soft tissue injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even internal injuries may also result.

Some injuries require tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of medical care to treat, prohibit an individual from returning to work, and result in a long-term diminished quality of life.

Who’s Liable?

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident that occurred through no fault of your own, our lawyers believe that you deserve to be compensated for the full extent of your economic and noneconomic losses. In order to determine who’s liable for your damages, our lawyers will dig deep to answer questions like:

  • What caused the fall?
  • Where did the fall occur? On whose property?
  • What were the conditions at the time of the fall in regards to lighting, security, hazardous conditions, debris, weather, etc.?

In the event that your slip and fall was caused by the negligence of a property owner who failed to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition, the property owner may be liable. We can help you to determine and prove liability and damages.
