Philadelphia sports fans are among the most passionate, caring, and in some cases aggressive fans across the United States. Philadelphia is home to the Eagles, Flyers, 76ers, Phillies, & Union. Consequently, the city offers a multitude of sports entertainment options to their proud citizens. Furthermore, there are 3 large sports stadiums and a large entertainment complex within one mile of one another in downtown Philadelphia. This can create a substantial level of population density, and traffic before and after games, concerts, or other events. With such a large number of people within such a small confined space, slip and fall accidents are bound to happen due to overcrowding, potholes, slippery surfaces, and various other dangerous conditions.
Property owners, property management companies, and security companies have a duty to maintain a “reasonably safe condition” for their property. If they knowingly or accidentally decide to not focus on property maintenance, they violate the legal doctrine, premises liability. Therefore, in the event of an accident, they can be held accountable for a victim’s resulting injuries. The owners of Citizens Bank Park, Lincoln Financial Field, The Wells-Fargo Center, and Xfinity Live have a responsibility to their employees, and spectators to provide a relatively safe environment. They must include proper hazard warnings, actively maintain busy parking lots and sidewalks, and do everything possible to promote safety on their properties.
