Are you familiar with premises liability and slip-and-fall cases? In some situations, if you slip and fall while on a homeowner or business premises, you may be entitled for compensation for any resulting injuries. This may happen in places where walkways are improperly maintained, areas are not well-lit, or there is not proper signage indicating danger or unusual walking conditions.
One such slip-and-fall case is recently in the news in Philadelphia, PA. A city woman is suing the Wal-Mart Corporation for injuries sustained in one of their area stores. The plaintiff claims that the Wal-Mart store had an accumulation of spilled and trampled foods, such as fruits and vegetables, on the store’s floor. The plaintiff slipped and fell on the mess, and suffered injuries to her back, lower extremities, and hips.
If you have slipped and fell on the property of another, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and potential pain and suffering. This may include cases where sidewalks were improperly maintained due to the winter weather, such as failure to remove snow and ice.
