If you were injured on someone else’s property in Philadelphia, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a Philadelphia premises liability lawyer at Munley Law to discuss your case for free.
Under Pennsylvania law, property owners have a legal obligation to protect their visitors and guests from unnecessary harm. Hidden dangers can lead to serious injuries, and individuals who get injured are entitled to compensation for their injury-related losses. This includes not only medical bills, but also loss of income, pain and suffering, and various other financial and non-financial losses.
How Do You know If You Have a Premises Liability Claim?
The law is complicated, and the only way to assess your rights is to discuss your case with an experienced Philadelphia premises liability attorney. At Munley Law, we have been representing accident victims in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas for nearly 60 years. Our premises liability attorneys are experienced in holding property owners accountable for dangerous conditions, and we have a proven record of success in insurance settlement negotiations and at trial.
At Munley Law, we do not charge for our services unless we win your premises liability case. Your initial consultation is free and confidential, and we will help you make the important decisions at every step along the way. If the property owner’s insurance company offers a settlement, we will help you understand whether the offer is a fair representation of your losses.

Q&A with Our Premises Liability Lawyers
Q: What should I do if I got injured at someone else’s home?
If you were injured at someone else’s home, you may be worried about getting into a legal dispute with your friend or neighbor. However, homeowner’s insurance covers premises-related accidents, and your claim will most likely involve an insurance settlement that does not result in any direct out-of-pocket cost to the property owner or tenant. Call a premises liability attorney at Munley Law to learn more about the claims process.
Q: Are all businesses liable for their customers’ and patrons’ injuries?
In broad terms, yes. Pennsylvania’s premises liability law does not distinguish between different types of businesses, and commercial property owners owe the greatest duty to protect their visitors. We handle premises liability claims against all types of businesses in the Philadelphia area, including:
- Amusement parks
- Construction sites
- Hospitals and nursing homes
- Industrial centers and warehouses
- Sports and entertainment venues
- Supermarkets and big box stores
- Private residences
- Professional offices
- Public facilities
Q: How can I prove that I was injured as a result of a hazardous condition on someone else’s premises?
If possible, take photos of the place where you fell or the conditions that lead to your accident, these are important to premises liability cases. Document any correspondence you have with the landlord or property owner regarding the incident. The most important thing you can do to prove premises liability cases is to seek legal representation as soon as possible. At Munley Law, we can quickly conduct an investigation and preserve any key evidence that proves your legal rights. We can also refer you to a trusted medical professional who can establish the cause of your injuries, and we can help you avoid mistakes that could jeopardize your financial recovery.
Q: Does Pennsylvania have a “one bite rule” for dog bite claims?
Yes. However, the rule is not as straightforward as it seems, and you do not need to prove that the dog has bitten previously in order to pursue a claim for financial compensation. Dog owners should take appropriate steps to prevent dog bites in the first place. When they fail do so, they can be held legally accountable.
