Premises Liability

Pennsylvania Premises Liability Attorneys

From dangerous ladders to snow accumulation during cold Pennsylvania winters, pedestrians, workers, patrons and guests on others’ property face countless risks that can lead to devastating injuries. If you were injured at work, at a neighbor’s house or while out on the town, the premises liability attorneys at Drake, Hileman & Davis are here to help you fight for just compensation.

Falls Due to Ice and Snow

Under Pennsylvania law, owners and tenants who allow ice or snow to accumulate on their property can often be held financially responsible for injuries resulting from slips and falls. These cases can be complicated, and it is critical to collect evidence before the ice or snow is removed or melts. Our attorneys have extensive experience in cases involving falls due to ice and snow, and we can act quickly to protect your rights.

Ladder Defects and Falls

Ladder falls can result from defects in a ladder’s design or construction, or from dangerous conditions surrounding use of the ladder. We have represented clients who have been injured by ladder defects and falls at home and on jobsites. In jobsite cases, we help injured workers pursue claims for both workers’ compensation benefits and personal injury damages.

Dangerous Store Displays

The number of injuries caused by dangerous store displays is greater than you might imagine. While you would expect big box stores and other retailers to put their customers’ and employees’ safety first, the sheer number of injuries resulting from falling merchandise each year indicates otherwise.  We have in the past and continue to represent clients injured by faulty designed floor plans or in-artfully stacked merchandise.

Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents

Slips, trips and falls are among the most common types of premises-related accidents. All it takes is one spill, one cracked step or one failure to put out a warning sign to cause a serious, potentially life-changing injury. We handle cases involving slip, trip and fall accidents occurring on all types of premises throughout eastern Pennsylvania.

Parking Lot Accidents

Private parking lot owners and operators owe a legal duty to provide a reasonable level of security and remedy unsafe conditions on their premises. If you were injured in a vehicle collision, slip, fall or other parking lot accident, our accident attorneys can help you seek a financial recovery.

Workplace and Construction Accidents

While construction sites are widely recognized as some of the most dangerous jobsites in the country, all workers face a number of premises-related risks on a daily basis. Our personal injury attorneys can help you claim workers’ compensation and hold any negligent third parties accountable for injuries resulting from a workplace or construction site accident.

Business Owner’s Duty to Invitee

In stores, restaurants, hotels, professional offices, sports facilities and other business locations, patrons are entitled to a reasonable expectation that they will not encounter hidden and unreasonably dangerous conditions. If you were injured in a slip, fall, assault, or other incident on commercial premises, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation.

Injuries from Falls

Many falls can leave victims suffering from catastrophic injuries. If you or a loved one suffered a fracture, neck injury, back injury, concussion or other serious injury in a fall on someone else’s property, we encourage you to contact us right away for a free, no-obligation consultation.
