Philadelphia Slip-and-Fall Lawyers
The sidewalks in the beautiful neighborhood of Mantua are well-kept and usually never slick in the winter, and that’s why you love going on walks there to enjoy the beauty of nature. The tidy streets, the smiling children, and your breath rising above the Schuylkill River beyond make your daily walk perfect.
Until you slipped and fell on the ice.
And since your injuries left you out of work and incapacitated for a few weeks, you couldn’t help but get angry that the pathway was so poorly maintained. Shouldn’t someone have to answer for your accident?
The Philadelphia slip-and-fall lawyers at Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC can recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries and pain and suffering, and make sure that the Philadelphia streets are safe to walk for you and your family.
Keeping the Streets Clean
In Philadelphia, individuals, companies, and government institutions are required to keep their properties clean and clear of any obstacles or weather-created objects that may cause harm to anyone in the area. This includes ice, snow, water, and any other unsafe conditions. Failure to remove these in a timely manner can result in the occurrence of an accident like yours, commonly referred to as a “premises liability case.” The Philadelphia code states that property owners are required to clear their sidewalk of snow and ice within six hours of when the snow has stopped falling to in part prevent slip and fall accidents due to snow and ice.
In these cases, though, the person at fault often chooses to shirk blame, instead attempting to place it on the person who slipped and fell.
Our Philadelphia slip and fall attorneys have vast experience in these types of cases and will work aggressively to make up for the injuries you have suffered.
Who was responsible?
One of the biggest issues regarding slip and fall cases in Philadelphia is that of responsibility. Sidewalks, walkways, and streets in all neighborhoods are required to be clear at all times, but it is not always clear who is responsible to maintain this part of the property.
We can help though. One of our slip and fall lawyers in Philadelphia will quickly work to find the party responsible and recover the compensation you are due.
Because you should always feel safe in your neighborhood.

Although a slip and fall accident in a public area can often be an embarrassing incident for the victim, many people do not immediately realize the dangerous and extremely harmful injuries that often come from a severe incident. If you were injured on someone else’s property due to the negligent actions of the property owner, you should be properly compensated for your medical expenses, as well as your pain and suffering.
