Searching for an attorney for slip and falls in Scranton?
If you were on another person's property and slipped, tripped and fell it is possible that the property owner can be held liable for negligence in maintaining property grounds. This is generally applicable if the property owner knew of a dangerous condition on the property and did nothing to fix it and did not warn others of the potential hazard. Standing water, a spill, an uneven walkway or a missing stair may all cause a person to slip and fall, even when he or she is being reasonably cautious.
