broken-philly-sidewalkHundreds of individuals are injured in slips, trips, and falls due to defective, uneven, or broken sidewalks in Philadelphia each year.  Although these falls may be accidental, they are likely caused by improper property maintenance and negligence from the property owner.  As the owner of a property, individuals are held responsible for maintaining a relatively safe environment, clarified in greater depth by Premises Liability. Uneven and broken sidewalks in the Philadelphia area create an increased risk for trip and fall injuries, as well as step and fall accidents, both of which are caused by a property owner’s negligence.

Our attorneys are loyal and committed to their clients, they are prepared to do everything in their power to not only deliver each client with a winning verdict but to ensure all clients’ comfort throughout the process.

Typical Injuries

  • Bone fractures, most commonly fractured hips, legs, arms, or pelvis
  • Muscle/ Ligament Tears
  • Sprains, strains, and hyperextensions
  • Concussions, TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries), and other head trauma
  • Spinal cord damage can lead to temporary/permanent paralysis
  • Chronic neck or back pain

Compensation can be greatly impacted by the level of severity that the injuries sustained by victims are associated with. For instance, victims who have sustained injuries that will impact them for the rest of their life are in greater need for financial assistance, then a victim who suffered a sprained wrist. Victims who are permanently disabled will need compensation to not only cover current costs such as medical bills and lost wages, but they also will need assistance maintaining their lives. Hence, their need for compensation to aid their future medical bills, pain and suffering and assistance from permanent unemployment. There is no exact science when calculating the potential compensation for a victim, therefore, we urge all victims to disregard settlement calculators, and focus more on prior similar lawsuit cases.
