Slip and Fall Injuries
TOM YORKO represents victims in Pennsylvania who have suffered serious injuries from slip and falls on dangerous premises such as customers at a business or pedestrians on sidewalks.
Some of the Most Serious Injuries occur when a victim falls less than 12 feet or trips on an uneven surface of only 1 to 2 inches. Ice accumulates and then re-freezes almost every night after a snowfall. If a property owner or business is not constantly vigilant, a slipping or tripping hazard will appear and cause unsuspecting customers or passing pedestrians to suffer permanent injury.
YOU TRIPPED ON AN UNEVEN SURFACE OR SLIPPED ON WATER /ICE. NOW WHAT?
Call 911 and wait for Police or EMS rescue. Show the personnel what caused you to fall, whether it was ice, water or an uneven surface. BE SURE IT IS NOTED IN THE RESPONDER'S REPORT.
DO NOT TELL ANYONE AT SCENE THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!
First get your composure and then determine what caused you to fall and suffer injury. Any statements that you make about the event will be used against you to deny your claim for personal injury. Wait to speak about the fall until after you are safe and free of the dangerous condition. PROTECT YOURSELF. PRESERVE YOUR CLAIM. CALL YOUR ATTORNEY 215 569 0110.
