Have You Been Injured On Another's Property?
Whether you are a visitor or guest at another's home or a patron at a business establishment, you have the right to expect that the property owner will maintain his or her property to ensure your safety.

Our experienced legal team represents clients throughout Pennsylvania in premises liability lawsuits, including those involving trip-and-fall accidents. We help them achieve favorable settlements and verdicts.
About Premises Liability Lawsuits
Premise liability cases commonly occur when an individual slips, trips or falls due to the presence of a hazardous condition on the property. Many different types of hazardous conditions can subject a responsible party to liability, including:
- Uneven pavement
- Slippery substances on a floor
- Accumulation of snow, ice or other debris on a sidewalk or parking lot
- Defective stairs
- Loose handrails
- Broken tiles or floor boards
Premise liability cases also involve claims arising from dog bites, swimming pool accidents and harm suffered from falling merchandise or due to inadequate security. In certain cases, they can also include third-party liability claims. For example, if a contractor works on a building that contains asbestos and contracts mesothelioma or another disease, the contractor may have a claim against the building owner.
Skilled Pittsburgh Attorneys Aggressively Pursuing Owner Negligence Claims
In order to pursue a premises liability claim, it will be necessary to prove that the property owner or other responsible party caused the dangerous condition that lead to the accident or allowed that condition to occur. It must also be proven that the party either knew or should have reasonably known about the danger posed by the condition.
Just because you were injured on another's property, you cannot simply assume the property owner will take responsibility. At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., our Pennsylvania premises liability lawyers can assist you in determining if you can pursue a claim against the property owner or other responsible party.
