    Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

    Slip and fall accidents are common, because they can be caused by a wide range of property defects. Trip and fall accidents can take place in indoor or outdoor settings, on residential properties or at places of businesses, and in any type of lighting or weather. Of course, certain factors increase the risk of slip and fall accidents occurring, such as damaged flooring or uncontrolled accumulations of ice. When a property owner negligently fails to maintain reasonably safe conditions on the premises, he or she could be liable for resulting injuries or fatalities.

    At The Reiff Law Firm, our Bristol slip and fall injury lawyers have decades of combined experience handling a broad range of complex premises liability claims against negligent business owners in Pennsylvania, including claims involving:

    • Accumulations of snow and ice that were not properly removed or salted
    • Broken, cracked, rotten, uneven, or damaged flooring
    • Dangerous wires, cords, and cables
    • Defective building materials
    • Failure to post adequate warning signs when necessary
    • Faulty steps or stairwells
    • Poor lighting and visibility
    • Structural or construction defects

    We have investigated slip and fall accidents in all types of settings, ranging from sidewalk slip and fall claims on public property to falls that occur in shops and apartments. Examples of environments where property hazards can lead to premises liability claims include:

    • Amusement parks and water parks
    • Apartment complexes
    • Bars and restaurants
    • Casinos
    • Department stores, malls, and shopping centers
    • Fast food franchises
    • Grocery stores
    • Hotels and motels
    • Office buildings and industrial complexes
    • Parking lots and parking garages
    • Sidewalks and walkways
    • Theatres and music/concert venues

    Compensation for Slip and Fall Injuries

    To the outside observer, a slip and fall or trip and fall might seem like a minor accident. However, slip and falls are capable of causing debilitating injuries. Certain segments of the population, such as the elderly, are particularly vulnerable to the effects of falls. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 2.8 million adults age 65 or older “are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries” every year.

    The injuries caused by a slip and fall accident could disable the victim for months or years, or even result in wrongful death. Examples of injuries caused by accidental falls could include:

    • Back injuries, such as cracked vertebrae
    • Bone fractures (broken bones) and bone bruises
    • Facial injuries, such as a broken nose or broken jaw
    • Hand and wrist injuries, which frequently occur when victims try to brace for the fall
    • Loss of sensation caused by nerve damage
    • Mouth, lip, and dental injuries, such as broken teeth
    • Neck injuries, such as a broken neck or soft tissue injury
    • Permanent scarring and disfigurement
    • Spinal cord injuries (SCI), which can result in paralysis
    • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other head injuries

    These and other injuries can lead to costly medical bills, adding financial strain to an already difficult period. However, by using medical records and other evidence to demonstrate how negligence caused your injuries, it may be possible to recover financial compensation. Recovery may include compensation for an array of expenses and losses resulting from the injury, such as medical bills, ongoing or long-term medical treatment and care, diminished earning capacity, and compensation for pain and suffering. In slip and fall wrongful death cases, additional damages may be recoverable.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
