Each state has a “statute of limitations” which limits the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. In Pennsylvania, with limited exceptions, the statute of limitations on negligence claims is two years. This means that if you don’t settle your claim or file a lawsuit or within that time period, you will lose your right to sue. Even though two years may seem like a long period of time, you should not wait to seek legal advice. Your attorney will need time to investigate your claim and gather evidence. In addition, the sooner evidence and witness statements can be secured, the better.
A trip / slip and fall accident can result in broken bones, traumatic brain injury, contusions and even paralysis. These claims fall under the area of law known as premises liability. The victim of a slip and fall accident may be able to recover money for their injuries if the fall was caused by the negligence of the property owner. This may include compensation for your injuries, lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering. In most cases, the property owner’s liability insurance will cover slip and fall injury claims.
Brent Wieand has significant experience litigating slip and fall claims and can advise you of the potential traps and pitfalls to look out for. He will work with you to maximize the compensation you receive in any settlement or award.
