Premises Liability Lawyer Pittsburgh, PA

Pennsylvania Personal Injury Attorney Seeking Compensation for Victims of Slip & Falls in Allegheny County, Butler County, Westmoreland County, and Throughout Western PA

Each property owner has the unique responsibility to take care of their guests and visitors. If a dangerous condition on the property leads to an accident, they must be held accountable for what happened and help pay for recoveries. If they do not, you may file a premises liability lawsuit for the harms and losses you have suffered.

Did you get hurt while on the property you did not own or control? Were you being reasonably cautious at the time of the accident? If so, contact Matzus Law LLC and talk to our Pittsburgh premises liability lawyer today. With our assistance, you may be able to achieve full compensation for your injuries.

Types of Premises Liability Claims

When a property owner is negligent in their responsibility to provide a safe environment for others, any number of dangers can be created. Not only do they have the duty to check their property for safety but they must also clean up, fix, or address any problems they do locate within a reasonable amount of time.

Some of the most common reasons a premises liability claim is created are:

  • Slips & falls: Wet floors, slick tiles, uneven pavement, lifted carpeting, and steps without handrails can all cause a person to slip and fall, suffering serious injury.
  • Falling objects: Visitors to retail stores can be placed in unfair peril from objects falling from the overhead storage and higher shelving units. Everything must be secured firmly in place or the store could be sued for hurting a patron.
  • Inadequate security: Some properties have the inherent responsibility of providing security to protect guests. For example, a bar typically needs at least one bouncer to ensure intoxicated patrons do not get out of hand or violent.
  • Dog bites: An animal on a person’s property must be restrained within reason when there is a visitor, and an owner is liable for damages if they have failed to properly restrain an animal on their property, or if an animal breaks free and attacks someone off the property.
