Montgomery County Premises Liability Attorneys

Aggressive Representation for Slip & Fall Accident Victims

If you or a family member was injured on a commercial or residential property because of the property owner's neglect or security failure, you want to hold the property owner accountable. Unfortunately, the law about injuries on another's property is not black and white. You will probably need help from a premises liability lawyer to determine if you have a case and from whom you can seek compensation.

AtSolomon, Berschler, Campbell & Thomas, P.C., we have fought for personal injury victims for more than 30 years. Our premises liability lawyers in Montgomery County have successfully resolved hundreds of complicated premises liability claims, including slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, and elevator and escalator accidents.

When you need legal help after a fall or dog bite, contact our premises liability lawyers to schedule a consultation. No recovery, no fee.

What is Pennsylvania’s Premises Liability Law?

There is no getting around snow and ice in our frigid northern climate. In Pennsylvania, commercial and residential property owners have some legal protection from liability when pedestrians fall on newly snowy or icy sidewalks. But that protection IS limited.

A property owner has to remove snow or treat icy conditions within a reasonable amount of time after the dangerous condition appears. The property owner can be held liable if:

  • The owner knew about the dangerous condition or it existed for such a long period of time that he or she should have known.
  • The snow or ice accumulated to such a degree that it formed "hills and ridges" that unreasonably obstructed travel and created a danger.
  • The dangerous condition caused a pedestrian to fall and suffer an injury.

How long is too long for such conditions to exist? The Pennsylvania "Hills and Ridges" doctrine says that if the snow and ice have resulted in hills and ridges of snow and ice, the property owner must have failed to deal with the storm in a reasonable period of time.

Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

The Hills and Ridges doctrine does not apply to all slippery conditions, only those resulting from natural causes.

You can seek compensation for a back injury suffered in a slip-and-fall accident or trip-and-fall injury resulting from:

  • Ice resulting from a water leak on a property
  • Slippery, wet floors in a store (when there is no warning of slippery conditions)
  • Merchandise left in store aisles
  • Raised cracks in a sidewalk, creating a tripping hazard

We also bring premises liability cases involving injuries from security and supervision failures, such as assaults in security apartment buildings and injuries caused by bouncers at bars.
