    Premises Liability Attorneys Serving Pennsylvania & New Jersey

    Common Slip and Fall Injuries

    The Centers for Disease Control report that more than a million people get hurt each year due to slipping, tripping, or falling. If you suffer injury from one of these accidents and you believe improper maintenance of the property caused your injury, an experienced premises liability attorney from Galfand Berger can review your case to determine your legal options.  Our skilled injury lawyers have over six decades of experience championing the rights of accident victims, and we have a history of achieving full and fair verdicts and settlements for our clients.

    Serious Injury is Common

    Whether you fall on a wet grocery store floor, or trip in a parking lot pothole, injuries can range from relatively minor to life changing. The following are some examples of typical slip and fall injuries:

    • Minor injuries include anything from minor cuts and bruises to simple strains. These typically heal quickly without the need for extended medical attention. An attorney may recommend that you file an insurance claim against the policy of responsible parties where your fall occurred (e.g., Allentown) to pursue compensation for your expenses.
    • Moderate injuries, such as bone breaks, strains, and even whiplash may heal completely over time, but they can be debilitating in the short term. These injuries can be costly in terms of medical and therapy expenses, and potential lost time from work.  Our attorneys can often help you pursue compensation for all expenses related to your injuries.
    • Severe injuries are all-too-common and may include catastrophic injuries to the head, back, neck, spinal cord, internal organs and, tragically in some cases, may result in death.  Severe slip and fall cases are life-changing events affecting thinking, memory and comprehension skills, , the ability to move about, perform day-to-day tasks, work, care for oneself, or live a pain-free life.

    Particularly in the case of severe injuries, it is vital to seek the assistance of an experienced premises liability lawyer to help with your case in Allentown, Reading, Harrisburg or wherever your injury occurred throughout the Philadelphia region.  You may face a lifetime of expenses related to permanent disability.  Only a dedicated lawyer who knows how to investigate the details of your case and present them effectively to a jury can help you secure the financial compensation you need.
