Pennsylvania Injury Attorney Defends Clients on Slip and Fall Claims
Skilled lawyer represents businesses and homeowners in the Orefield area in premises liability lawsuits
Pennsylvania law obligates businesses to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise reasonable care and someone is injured as a result, the company may be responsible for a patron or visitor's injuries. The same is true for homeowners, who must make their grounds reasonably safe for guests and others, such as delivery persons, who have a legal right to enter the property. At Gerald M. Barr, I employ a practical, professional approach to ensure that my clients in the Orefield area and throughout Pennsylvania are protected from false or unreasonable claims. I will challenge the plaintiff's allegations to protect your rights and mitigate damages.
Proven Pennsylvania advocate explains legal duty of care
Property owners owe a legal duty of care to all visitors who legally enter their premises. For a business to be found responsible for a slip and fall accident on its premises, evidence must prove that a dangerous condition existed on the property, that condition caused an injury, and that at least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
I will work to disprove all elements of these claims to protect the property owners my firm represents.
