A slip and fall lawsuit is one of the most common types of cases, particularly throughout the winter months. The Philadelphia area has become widely known for the horrible weather conditions we experience during the winter, including ice and snow-covered sidewalks, paths, walkways or streets. All of these conditions make slip and fall accidents more likely to occur.
Whether the ice or snow-covered area that you slipped on was in front of a retail store or the property of your neighbor, the owner of that property neglected to take precautions and prevent an icy surface from forming or removing the snow, and thus may be responsible for your injury.
Injury from a slip and fall accident can occur if:
- Ice or snow accumulated outside of a building in unnatural quantities
- Ice accumulated on the roof, melted, and refroze on the ground below
- A parking surface is sloped and caused ice to freeze in patches
- A property owner has neglected to have snow or ice removed from the premises
