Premises Liability: Your Rights If You Are Injured On Another’s Property
Property owners have the duty to keep their premises safe. If dangerous conditions exist, they must be repaired in a timely manner and passersby must be warned of the danger before it is remedied. Unfortunately, not all property owners are diligent in their duties. When spills are left uncleaned, sidewalks uncleared of ice and snow, sidewalks and parking lots left in a state of disrepair, and dangers go unmarked, innocent people get hurt.

Injured In A Fall?
Under Pennsylvania’s premises liability laws, commercial property owners, private residential property owners and even the city and state can be held liable for injuries caused by dangerous conditions on their properties. Examples of dangerous conditions include:
- Uncleaned spills with no warning signs
- Lack of security
- Poor lighting
- Defective elevators and escalators
- Unsecure railings and balconies
- Improperly designed staircases
- Lack of handrails
- Steps, landings and decks that are in a state of disrepair
- Improperly stacked boxes or shelving that falls
- Uneven surfaces and potholes
Business owners and home owners have a duty to clear sidewalks after snow storms. Failure to keep sidewalks clear and safe is negligence. If a dog or other animal attacks you, you can sue the negligent owner for failing to keep the animal leashed or within yards.
