Holding Property Owners Responsible For Dangerous Conditions
Property owners who maintain possession of their land have a duty to keep their properties in a reasonably safe condition for the protection of members of the public to whom their properties are held open. This includes performing reasonable inspections to discover and correct any dangerous conditions. If you have been injured as a result of a property owner’s negligence, you may have a basis to receive financial recovery for your injury.

Slip-And-Fall Accidents And Dog Bites

Property owners who fail to take reasonable measures to protect the public from known slippery conditions and other dangerous conditions may be held liable for injuries sustained on their property.
To recover financial damages for a dog attack, a plaintiff in Pennsylvania must establish that the dog owner knew or reasonably should have known about the dangerous propensities of the dog. Experienced attorneys can investigate the facts of your case and determine if you have a viable claim for damages.
If a property owner or dog owner is found liable for your injuries, you may be able to receive a recovery for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
