Williamsport Slip-and-Fall Lawyers

Often, these slip and fall accidents are caused by a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else's property. Dangerous conditions that cause slip and fall accidents may include slippery surfaces and substances caused by snow, water leakage or food spillage; defective or uneven flooring; improper design or maintenance of property; and poor lighting.

Premises Liability Attorneys

An injury from a fall that is caused by a hazardous condition on another's property may entitle the victim to monetary compensation, as property owners have specific duties with respect to the maintenance of their properties. The law requires property owners to maintain their properties, give notice or warning of any hazards, and then repair the defects. Our Williamsport slip-and-fall attorneys can examine your situation and provide the exceptional legal service you require.
