Montgomery County Slip And Fall Attorney
Property owners have several responsibilities they need to uphold. They must ensure that their properties are in safe condition, and they must be aware of any hazards that could harm visitors. If they know about a hazard and fail to fix it — or fail to check for any hazards at all — other people can suffer serious slip and fall injuries, leading to physical, emotional, and financial damages.
If you suffer a slip and fall on another person’s property, you may be eligible for financial compensation. In these situations, the Montgomery County slip and fall lawyers at Rosenbaum & Associates can help you fight for your maximum possible recovery.

Types of Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries can be very severe, depending on the type of surface you fell on and the circumstances surrounding the fall. These injuries often require expensive, intensive medical care to treat, including physical therapy, surgeries, medication, and assisted living. It can also take a very long time to recover from this damage, and the accident may result in permanent consequences.
Common injuries slip and fall victims sustain include the following.
- Hip fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries, including concussions
- Spinal cord damage and paralysis
- Cuts and abrasions
- Facial fractures
- Sprained ankles and wrists
- Shoulder dislocation
- Muscle strain
- Nerve damage
- Other broken bone
Compensation in Pennsylvania Slip and Fall Claims
Because slip and fall injuries can be so severe, the financial, physical, and emotional burden of these accidents can take a toll on victims. If someone else’s actions caused your slip and fall, you can collect compensation for your damages through a personal injury lawsuit. In Pennsylvania, you can claim two types of damages in your case: economic damages, or financial losses, and non-economic damages, also known as pain and suffering.
Economic damages compensate you for the tangible out of pocket expenses you incur due to the accident. The bulk of your settlement will likely go toward your past and future medical expenses, such as surgeries or physical therapies. You can also claim lost wages, property damage, and any other costs associated with your injury and treatments under this category, such as transportation to and from your appointments.
Pain and suffering can be difficult to calculate, but your attorney can help you determine what types of damages you can claim. Common types of non-economic damages include the following.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Loss of quality of life
- Permanent disability or disfiguremen
