How Do I Know If I Have a Slip and Fall Claim?

The key to any slip and fall case is negligence. Whether you are an invited guest, a store patron, or a resident of an apartment, you are entitled to a basic sense of safety. If the property owner, manager, or other responsible party failed in their duty to safely maintain the property and you suffered physical injury, you may have a valid claim.

The following elements are necessary to prove a slip and fall case:

  • Duty of Care: The property owner or occupier (defendant) owed a duty of care to the injured party (plaintiff). This duty varies depending on the legal status of the plaintiff, such as whether they were an invitee, licensee, or trespasser.
  • Breach of Duty: The defendant breached their duty of care by failing to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition or by failing to provide adequate warnings about hazards.
  • Causation: The hazardous condition was the direct cause of the plaintiff's injuries. It must be shown that the slip and fall incident was a result of the dangerous condition and not due to the plaintiff's own negligence.
  • Damages: The plaintiff suffered actual damages as a result of the slip and fall, which may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related losses.

If you are unsure if you have a valid slip and fall case, contact Metzger Wickersham today. Our slip and fall lawyers in Harrisburg can explain your rights during a free initial consultation.
