Do I need a slip and fall lawyer?

You will want an experienced injury attorney on your side to prove that there was an unsafe condition on the premises that caused your injury. We will also need to prove that the property owner or manager knew about this dangerous condition and failed to fix the problem or provide adequate warnings. We work with a team of investigators and experts to ensure that the negligent party is held responsible.

Contact us today. A Munley Law slip and fall attorney will provide a free, no obligation consultation to determine if you have a case. If you decide to move forward, our experienced personal injury legal team will gather evidence, draft a complaint, negotiate settlements and represent you in court. We will work hard to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Wilkes-Barre slip and fall hazards

Wet or slippery floors – Have you ever walked into a Luzerne County restaurant or grocery store and suddenly slid on a spill or wet floor that was being mopped? Maybe you slipped at work on a greasy or oily surface that was not properly cleaned. Slip and fall accidents happen frequently when a property manager or owner fails to clean up a slip or put up warning signs of a wet floor.

Potholes or cracks in a sidewalk or pavement – Sidewalk cracks or drops and uneven walking surfaces can all cause an accident resulting in an injury. When maintenance issues aren’t addressed immediately, dangerous conditions can lead to serious injuries.

Unsafe staircase – Every flight of stairs should be equipped with standard railings. The railings should be secure and the stairs well maintained at all times. When a stairway in a rental property or other building in Wilkes-Barre is unsafe, tenants and visitors are at risk.

Uneven floor or walkway – Changes in elevation or irregularities on a walking surface can pose a serious threat. Uneven carpeting, loose floor tiles or unmarked steps can cause a trip and fall hazard that results in injuries.

Cluttered walkway – Debris and other clutter that has accumulated in a walkway can cause a trip hazard in Wilkes-Barre. A property owner is required to keep walkways safe for visitors.

Icy sidewalk – A poorly maintained sidewalk in the winter can pose a serious threat to pedestrians. A slip and fall on the ice can leave a victim with a serious brain or spinal cord injury. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, contact a Munley Law attorney today.

Lack of adequate lighting – Poor lighting could pose a serious risk of a slip and fall accident on a Wilkes-Barre property.  Dimly lit stairs and walkways can pose real dangers.

After my car accident, I was severely injured and the insurance company refused to pay for my expenses. I knew that I needed help. I turned to Robert Munley and he fought for me like no one else has. Not only was he able to get me the money I needed to pay my medical bills but he kept me informed through the entire process. I don’t know where I would be without Robert Munley. Personal Injury Client

When I got into my terrible auto accident eight months ago, I had nowhere to turn after the insurance company denied my claim. Not only did Dan Munley help me with my case, but he kept me informed every step of the way. Thank you so much for all your work! Elizabeth, a Car Accident Client
