If you were injured on someone else’s property in Pottsville, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Call us for a free consultation.
Dangers are all around us. On a daily basis, we take for granted the safety of simple things – from the air we breathe to the floors we walk on. But the most simple, unexpected deviation from the norm has the potential to lead to a lifetime of disability, pain, and suffering.
If you have suffered an injury or fallen ill while on someone else’s property – whether at someone’s residence, business, or even a public place – it is important that you speak with an attorney. The owner of the property may be financially liable for your losses, and these losses may be far greater than you initially realize. At Munley Law, we have been representing clients in Pottsville and the surrounding areas for nearly 60 years. We have recovered millions for our clients, and as a family law firm we take a unique team approach that affords every client the very best our firm has to offer.
Premises liability law provides financial compensation for individuals who have been diagnosed with severe injuries and illnesses following incidents on third-party property. This could be a traumatic injury from a sudden slip or fall, it could be poisoning from toxic exposure, or it could be an occupational illness or injury that develops gradually over time due to unsafe conditions in the workplace. Whatever the case may be, if you have medical bills, if you are in pain, or if you are unable to work as a result of an illness or injury – we encourage you to contact us immediately so that we can help you collect the compensation you deserve.

Premises Liability FAQs
Q: If I slipped and fell, aren’t I to blame for my own injuries?
No, not necessarily. And it is important not to make these types of assumptions after an accident on someone else’s property. From slippery floors and loose carpeting to malfunctioning elevators and escalators, there are numerous unexpected risks that can cause people to fall and suffer serious injuries. When we investigate your case, we will seek to quickly determine the cause of your fall so that we can hold the at-fault party (or parties) responsible for your losses.
Now, let’s assume that you were partially at fault. What does the law say about your rights? In Pennsylvania, you may still be entitled to financial compensation. Pennsylvania follows a “modified comparative fault” rule which says that you can still seek compensation as long as you were less than 51% at fault in the accident.
Q: What types of property owners can be held liable for premises-related illnesses and injuries?
All types of property owners can be held liable for the premises-related injuries of visitors and guests. This includes (but is not limited to) owners of:
- 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: If I was injured or got sick at work, don’t I have to file for worker’s compensation?
While you may be entitled to workers’ compensation for an on-the-job illness or injury, you may also be entitled to additional compensation under the law of premises liability. In addition to helping you with your workers’ compensation claim, we can also help you seek compensation from a building owner, subcontractor, or any other third party that is liable for your losses.
Q: How much does it cost to hire a premises liability lawyer?
At Munley Law, it costs you nothing out-of-pocket to hire an experienced premises liability attorney. We pay your upfront costs, and we do not bill you anything unless we win just compensation on your behalf. You can learn more about our contingency-fee representation in our personal injury FAQs.
