Dangerous Properties

Pennsylvania law requires property owners to maintain safe premises free from any dangers. If an owner becomes aware of any hazards, they must remedy them in a timely manner. Unfortunately, some property owners ignore state laws and fail to maintain a safe premises, which can lead to serious accidents that typically result in injuries or even death.

Establishing Your Claim

In order to file a successful premises liability claim, there has to be a dangerous situation on the property that the owner knew about, or should have known about, but failed to correct. Claims also need to be filed within a two-year window of time after the accident has occurred. Missing this window means missing out on much needed compensation.
