    Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

    Slip and falls are the most common type of personal injury case. As mentioned above, one of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents is a property owner’s failure to correct a hazardous condition on their property. Various types of hazardous conditions could cause an individual to suffer a slip and fall.

    A property owner has a duty to correct these dangerous conditions, or at least warn pedestrians and visitors about the condition. If a property owner fails to correct the condition warn unsuspecting guests, they may be liable for their injuries.

    One way that a slip and fall may occur is if a person trips on a section of cracked pavement outside of a person’s home or establishment. Similar situations can occur if a property owner fails to shovel snow and ice from their property in the winter. Other common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

    • Unstable steps or stairways
    • Inadequate lighting (e.g., dark parking lot or stairway)
    • Unmarked construction areas
    • Slippery floors or surfaces

    This is not an exclusive list, and there are several other ways that a slip and fall accident could occur. If you need more information about slip and fall claims, you should speak with an experienced Norristown personal injury lawyer.

    Common Slip and Fall Injuries

    A slip and fall accident could cause a victim various kinds of injuries. Many of these injuries will leave an injured individual with long-term or permanent side effects.

    One injury that is typically caused by a slip and fall is a bone fracture. When a person is falling, they will likely react by extending their arms and hands to attempt to break their fall. This is how many slip and fall broken bone injuries occur. Additionally, a person’s hips, spinal column, and face are other common areas that are typically injured in slip and fall cases.

    Another common type of slip and fall injury is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI usually occurs when a person suffers severe trauma to their head, which is certainly possible during a slip and fall. The severity of a TBI will determine the type of symptoms a person may experience. For example, an individual could have difficulty communicating or suffer from a loss of sensation for a severe TBI, but a more minor concussion (mild TBI) could mean headaches and dizziness. If left untreated, a TBI can lead to a severe or permanent injury.

    Spinal cord injuries are another type of injury that frequently occur because of a slip and fall accident. Spinal cord injuries can be frightening because if the injury is severe enough, you can suffer from partial or total paralysis.

    If you have suffered one of these injuries or another type of injury during a slip and fall, you should speak with an experienced Norristown slip and fall lawyer.

    When Should You File a Slip and Fall Injury Lawsuit?

    In Pennsylvania, you have two years from the date of a slip and fall accident to file a lawsuit under the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations dictates the amount of time an individual has to file a lawsuit. This means that different type of cases may have different filing deadlines, depending on the state’s laws.

    If you are worried that your slip and fall claim may have passed the filing deadline, you should contact an experienced attorney immediately. Depending on the circumstances of your case, there is a possibility that the filing deadline for your personal injury case can be delayed or that there are other ways to seek compensation.

    ...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.
