Altoona Premises Liability Lawyers
Counsel from a Trusted Altoona, PA Personal Injury Attorney
According to Pennsylvania law, property owners are responsible for providing
safe conditions to welcome visitors of their property. This is particularly
important on commercial properties, where patrons, customers, and renters
are wanted and encouraged to spend time on the premises. If something
on that property then ends up hurting a welcome visitor, the property
owners may be liable for damages.
If you believe you were hurt by conditions that should have been addressed
by a residential or commercial property owner, we at

more than 100 years. Over that time, we have continued to build on our

Understanding "Duty of Care"
Premises liability claims center around a legal concept called "duty
of care." Duty of care is the obligation that property owners have
to provide safe conditions and proper warnings of possible hazards to
welcome visitors. When there is an injury, it is up to the plaintiff to
provide evidence that this duty has been breached.
Successful premises liability claims must demonstrate:
- That the defendant owed the plaintiff duty of care
- That the defendant did not provide that care
- That the lack of care allowed for dangerous conditions to be present
- That those conditions led directly to an injury
Commonly, premises liability claims are called "slip and fall" cases, but
toxic exposure, and other property-specific injuries can be considered premises liability
claims, as well. No matter what the circumstances of your case are, our
team is ready to provide you legal options and, if necessary, bring exacting
and proactive legal action to the responsible parties on your behalf.
