    Slip and Fall and Trip and Fall Accidents

    Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of injury cases. People fall down for many preventable reasons, potentially suffering serious injuries. Most people are not trained in falling properly like stunt performers or gymnasts are, thus the average person may suffer serious injuries like broken bones, back and neck injuries, and head and brain injuries when they fall.

    Many accidents occur in common, preventable ways. If you were injured in one of these kinds of slip and fall accidents, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for the injuries you suffered:

    Icy Sidewalk Accidents

    In the winter months, sidewalks in Easton and throughout the Lehigh Valley can become quite slippery. If property owners fail to clear snow or they allow water and ice to accumulate without properly salting or de-icing the sidewalk, pedestrians passing through the area can suffer serious injuries if they slip and fall on a slick patch of sidewalk.

    Loose Cables and Wiring

    Vacuum cleaners, power tools, electronics, and other devices often need power cords and extension cords run through rooms and across walkways. The property owner and the individual running the wires across a pathway should properly warn of these tripping hazards to notify people of the dangers of walking across those cables. Cables should also be taped flat to minimize the risk of injury. If you get your foot caught on a cable, you could fall and suffer serious injuries.

    Uneven Pavement

    Older sidewalks may be uneven and present serious tripping hazards. Especially if there are plants growing up through the sidewalk or there are uneven seams between cement blocks, pedestrians could trip and fall onto hard surfaces, potentially causing cuts, scrapes, broken bones, and other injuries.

    Protruding Tree Roots

    On sidewalks and in parks and other grassy areas, tree roots can emerge from the ground and create tripping hazards. Especially when tree roots begin emerging through a sidewalk, they can create large mounds and cracked pavement that can cause people to trip, especially if the lighting in the area is poor.

    Wet Floors and Spills

    Many lobbies and stores end up having very wet floors, especially when people track rain or snow inside the building. Spills in grocery stores and convenience stores can also make the floor incredibly slick. If the type of flooring material makes it difficult to see the spill or becomes very slick, the building owner may be liable for any injuries you face because they failed to use a “Caution: Wet Floor” sign or attempt to clean up the spill.

    Dark Stairwells

    Dark areas in bars, clubs, or concert venues may be covered in debris, spills, or even ice and snow if the surface is outside or adjacent to an entrance/exit. With stairwells, the risk of tripping or slipping is exacerbated, and if the stairwell is too dark to see dangers, you could fall a long distance.

    Suing for Slip and Fall Injuries in PA

    Pennsylvania law allows injury victims to sue the responsible parties to seek compensation. When you fall on someone else’s property, it is often because the property owner failed to fix a dangerous problem or at least warn you of the danger. This is known as “negligence,” and it is the foundation of most injury lawsuits.

    When suing for negligence in a slip and fall case, you must show that the at-fault party, typically the property owner, should have cleaned up the spill, repaired the defect, or otherwise warned you about the dangers. If they failed to do so, you can sue for any damages that the accident caused. This includes financial consequences like the medical bills and lost work resulting from your injury as well as intangible harms like the pain and suffering of dealing with a broken bone or a serious brain injury.

    Some of these injuries can even lead to life-threatening injuries like spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. If a loved one was disabled or killed by a serious slip and fall, contact our law offices immediately to discuss your options for compensation to support your family.

    ...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.

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.
