Slip and fall accidents can occur at any time, but they seem to occur more often during the winter months in Pennsylvania, when snow, ice, and water can accumulate on sidewalks, in parking lots, and on floors, making these areas particular dangerous for pedestrians. If you have been injured in an accident on someone else's property, you may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit. Slip, trip and fall accidents are generally considered "premises liability" cases, which arise when property owners or custodians negligently maintain their property, or the conditions of the property are unreasonably dangerous. Many states have laws that require landowners to maintain their property so that it does not present an unreasonable risk of harm to those that visit the property. These laws often pertain to both business owners and homeowners.
