Were you injured because of someone else’s negligence? Did you fall on an icy sidewalk or in a pothole? I make money for my clients. $175,000 for a fall into a pothole in Philadelphia with rotator cuff surgery. $200,000 for a fall on ice at a Montgomery County mall with a knee injury. $55,000 for a fall on a broken up sidewalk in Delaware County with a broken eye socket or fractured orbit.
What should you do? First, you need to know and take photos of what caused your fall. That is really helpful. Second, give me a call at 215-259-3687 or visit me at www.neuwirthlaw.com! Third, we need to prove that the property owner had notice of the dangerous condition. Property owners have an obligation to you as a customer to inspect and maintain their property and an obligation to find out that dangerous conditions exist. This is a pretty big responsibility for the property owner. Basically, if they invite you to their store to do business, it should be safe for you to visit? Makes sense, right?
Be aware that ambulance personnel, ER nurses, and everyone else is writing down what you say caused your injury. Make sure you are clear with them about what happened. They often get it wrong.
Finally, these are good cases to pursue. Juries believe that property owners should keep their property safe for you to visit.
