Whether you’re visiting a friend, out shopping at the grocery store, or on virtually any other property you have a legal right to be on in Chester County, PA, to some degree, you should have a reasonable expectation of safety. Pennsylvania’s premises liability laws require that property owners and managers monitor their properties for hazards that can put the safety of legal guests at risk. These laws also require property owners to address any hazards they identify by eliminating them or otherwise preventing guests from being harmed by them.
You may be injured in what could have been an avoidable accident if you’re visiting a property whose owners were negligent. If this happens, contact a Chester County premises liability attorney at Dan Doyle Law Group. We can help you pursue compensation for your medical bills and related losses.
Chester County Premises Liability Cases: Essential Information
Premises liability cases can take a range of forms. These are just a few common examples:
- You slip and fall over a spill at the supermarket because neither management nor any of the store’s employees noticed it and cleaned it up in a reasonable timeframe
- After a harsh overnight winter storm, you slip over a patch of ice in the parking lot of a shopping center because the owners did not apply deicing agents
- There is a clearly visible section of loose tiling that someone can slip over at a local shop, but ownership either carelessly overlooked it or were aware of its presence but decided not to fix the problem, allowing you to be harmed in a slip and fall
Again, those are merely a few examples. Review your case with a Chester County premises liability law firm to find out if you have reason to seek compensation.
