Pursuing Compensation For Victims Of Dangerous Property

The Pennsylvania law of premises liability tries to find a balance between the responsibility of property owners to maintain their premises in a safe condition and the responsibility of everyone else to watch where they're going. That means compensation is not automatically owed to someone who is injured. It takes a skilled lawyer to make the case.

  • Falling accidents suffered on icy porches, sidewalks or parking lots

Proving Negligence After An Accident

Our goal in a dangerous property case is to establish the owner's liability based on negligent maintenance, unreasonable hazards or failure to warn of known dangers. In many cases, the property owner tries to avoid liability in one of two ways: claiming they didn't know about the dangerous condition, or claiming your own carelessness caused your injuries more than any negligence on the part of the owner.

At The Law Offices of Mitchell Clair, we will fight to prove that a property owner's negligence led to your injuries. With 30 years of experience, you can trust that we have the knowledge and skill to build a strong case on your behalf.

What If You Were Hurt On Public Property?

If your claim will involve a public defendant, such as a school district or municipality, you will probably need to file notice of your claim within 90 days of the accident. You can also expect to face a defense of sovereign immunity unless your attorney can show that your case is covered by a recognized statutory exception.
