Philadelphia Slip and Fall Lawyer
“Slip and fall” is a term used for a personal injury case in which a person slips or trips and is injured on someone else’s property. These cases usually fall under the category of cases known as “premises liability” claims. Slip and fall accidents usually occur on the property (or “premises”) owned or maintained by someone else. The property owner or the property manager may be held legally responsible for the victim’s injury.
There are many dangerous conditions like a wet floor, broken sidewalk, snow, black ice, pothole, spilled liquid and leaking pipes that can cause a slip and fall. Many of times the slip and fall occurs at the victim’s workplace.
If you or a loved one were injured from a slip and fall, it is important to do the following after seeking immediate medical attention:
- Report the incident to the store manager, workplace supervisor or property manager where the fall occurred.
- Take color photographs of the dangerous condition that caused the accident.
- Preserve the contact information for any witnesses that observed the dangerous condition or accident.
- Contact Anthony Gagliano at (267) 861-7100 or email@example.com.
Recent Victory for a Trip and Fall Client
Mr. Gagliano recently recovered a settlement of $250,000.00 for a real estate agent who tripped and fell after stepping into a pothole in the street. The pothole was hidden because of leaves. The victim suffered a fractured ankle requiring surgery. The victim’s claim was initially denied and the City of Philadelphia clamed the victim for not being more careful where she walking. After Mr. Gagliano was hired, he filed a lawsuit against the City of Philadelphia and a settlement was reached shortly after.
