lancaster pennsylvania slip and fall guyI have been representing victims of slip and fall accidents my entire career, which expands over 25 years.  Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere including Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  The causes of slip and falls can vary from slipping on a wet bathroom floor or tripping because of an uneven or broken sidewalk.  Pennsylvania law requires property owners, managers, landlords, renters and others to keep their properties safe for their intended or foreseeable uses.  If you or a loved one have been injured in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, call the Lancaster Slip and Fall Guy, Joseph Monaco, to learn your rights including the recovery of monetary damages.

Common Defenses encountered by the Lancaster Slip and Fall Guy

One common defense is the property owner arguing that they were not at fault.  For example, the owner or property manager will argue that the liquid on the floor causing the fall had been dropped on the floor only moments before the fall  happened.  Therefore, they did not have enough time to clean it up.

A second defense is that the fall victim is at fault.  They should have seen the substance on the floor or the crack in the sidewalk thereby avoiding it.  However, individuals do not walk with their heads staring at the ground.  You have to be aware of your complete surroundings to avoid walking in front of a car or bicycle.  Also, a store patron may be looking for something on a store shelf and not see the grapes or toy that had fallen to the ground.  Many properties are also poorly illuminated at night.  Pennsylvania has a comparative negligence statute, which means if the fault of the victim is 50% or less, they are entitled to an award of damages.

Handles Premises Liability Cases Too

Lancaster County Pennsylvania Dram Shop Claims (Improperly Serving Alcohol)

9,967 people were killed in the United States in 2014 by drunk driving accidents.  Someone is killed once every 53 minutes.  In Pennsylvania, there are approximately 10,000 alcohol related motor vehicle crashes per year leading to about 350 deaths.  As a Lancaster Pennsylvania Dram Shop Lawyer, I have handled dram shop cases against bars and restaurants that have needlessly served visibly intoxicated patrons, who then cause serious auto accidents leading to wrongful death or serious bodily injuries to others or themselves.  It is also possible for parents to be responsible if their teenager is hosting a party attended by minors.   In some cases, the intoxicated culprit and alcohol provider may be jointly liable for damages.
