Slip-and-fall accidents may warrant personal injury claims in Pennsylvania

wet floor

If an individual gets hurt while on property belonging to someone else, the situation could prove painful and potentially complicated. The injuries could cause considerable difficulties in the person’s life, and as a result, he or she may wish to seek compensation for damages resulting from the incident. If the injury-causing event was caused by negligent actions or inaction on the part of the property owner, there may be cause for a personal injury claim.

Pennsylvania residents may be interested in one case currently taking place in another state. Reports indicated that a woman has filed a claim against Wal-Mart due to suffering an injury in one of its stores. The incident occurred when the woman fell on a wet floor. The wet area was apparently caused by a cooler that had been leaking.

The woman claims to have suffered injuries and mental anguish from her slip and fall, and she is facing medical expenses and other difficult outcomes. She claims that the company failed to maintain a safe environment, did not warn customers of the wet conditions of the floor and did not take other steps to prevent the injury. With her case, she is seeking more than $15,000 in restitution.

In many cases such as this one, premises owners may be liable for injuries and other damages resulting from an accident on their property. If Pennsylvania residents have been involved in similar incidents, they may wish to consider filing personal injury claims in hopes of gaining compensation for those damages. Speaking with experienced attorneys could help interested parties find out more on their possible options.
