When You Have Been Injured in a Slip-and-Fall Accident
Sip-and-fall injuries happen unexpectedly - in a store, a hotel, an apartment building, or someone's home — and can have lasting consequences. That is why it is critical to talk with an attorney as soon as possible after you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, and why it is important that your attorney be qualified to handle complex personal injury litigation.
Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr uses his 17 years experience in personal injury law to take effective legal action for the victims of slip-and-fall accidents and their families in western and central Pennsylvania.
Injured in a Slip-and-Fall? Quick Action is Critical to Your Success.
When our firm takes your case, we understand that quick action is critical to your success. Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr investigates the scene of the slip-and-fall to gather information about the unsafe conditions that exist there. He also talks with witnesses to get a clear picture of the hazard that caused your fall. Did the property owner have notice that the dangerous condition existed? Had people been hurt before in the same spot? Had the owner failed to put up warning signs? He will find out. He will also hold the property owner accountable for the harm they caused.
This is especially true for the most serious injuries, including brain injuries, back, neck and other spinal cord injuries, and injuries to joints and connective tissue. Regardless of your situation or the circumstances that caused your personal injury, our firm can help. Common places for slip-and-fall accidents include:
- Uneven sidewalks, parking lots and driveways
- Wet and slippery floors, hallways and stairways
- Inadequate handrails
- Improper maintenance of property interiors or exteriors
