Personal injury claims encompass any harm that is caused to a person, whether physical or emotional. Individuals who have suffered a harm can file a lawsuit to recover damages from the individual who is responsible for their injuries. An injured party must bring a personal injury claim within a specific period of time after the accident or risk having their claim become “statute barred” and dismissed. Therefore, if you have suffered an injury and wish to discuss your rights, it is very important that you see an attorney soon after your accident, rather than waiting until just before the expiration of the statute of limitations.
The Law Offices of Williams and Scheetz has been representing individuals in personal injury cases since 1977. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your claim. Please call us at 215-322-7340 to schedule a free consultation.
Following an automobile accident, it is important that you take the necessary steps to protect your rights. The police should be called and any injured party should seek medical attention immediately. The parties involved in the accident should then contact their insurance company to report the claim. If you are involved in an accident and are asked to sign papers from your insurance company, you should not do this until your attorney has had a chance to review the papers. Your attorney will ensure that you are not waiving any rights or agreeing to an inadequate settlement.
If you have been involved in an automobile accident and would like to discuss your legal rights, please feel free to call our office at 215-322-7340 to schedule a free consultation.
Slip and Fall Accidents
A slip and fall is a generic term for an injury that occurs when someone slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else's property. It includes falls as a result of water, ice or snow, as well as abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting or even a hidden hazard, such as a gap or hard to see hole in the ground.
Property owners are responsible for injuries that occur as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on their property, which the owner knew about, or should have known about. These conditions may be obvious, such as ice or snow on a sidewalk, or hidden, such as a hole in a lawn that may be obscured by grass.
Slip and fall cases are often challenging and difficult to prove. To prevail, a slip and fall attorney must establish not only the existence of a dangerous condition, but the property owner's actual or constructive knowledge of that condition. An experienced slip and fall attorney would initiate an immediate investigation that would include conducting a site inspection, securing evidence of the dangerous condition, locating witnesses and proof of prior complaints, and hiring the appropriate experts on safety standards.
If you are injured as a result of a slip and fall accident, you should seek medical attention immediately. Too often, injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident may not manifest themselves for some days or weeks, making it all the more important that you seek medical attention without delay.
The Law Offices of Williams and Scheetz has successfully handled many slip and fall cases since 1977. We have experience in cases that involve steps, tile floors, wood floors, sidewalks and other surfaces. When needed, we employ forensic experts, including architects and engineers, who will examine the surface and provide an analysis of conditions arising from design inadequacies or the failure to adhere to applicable building codes.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury, we can assist you in evaluating your case. Please call us at 215-322-7340 to schedule a free consultation.
