We Fight For Compensation In Premises Liability Cases

Pennsylvania law holds property owners accountable when people are injured on their property. Property owners have the duty to protect visitors from known hazards on their property — either by warning visitors of hazards or by fixing them so that nobody gets hurt. When property owners fail to do so and when visitors get hurt, property owners can be held accountable for the harm caused.

At the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, law offices of Shay, Santee, Kelhart & Deschler LLC, we represent people who have been injured on another’s property by bringing premises liability lawsuits in courts throughout Pennsylvania. We are well-equipped to achieve the best possible results by using extensive legal knowledge, years of experience and substantial resources to represent personal injury victims.

Representing Clients In A Variety Of Cases

Our personal injury lawyers handle different types of premises liability claims related to many factors:

  • Slip and falls
  • Trip and falls
  • Ice and snow on sidewalks and parking lots
  • Handicap accessible ramps built too steeply
  • Dangerous and defective stairways, railings and decks
  • Lack of effective security and locking doors to prevent attacks
  • Drownings and other injuries occurring in pools
  • Insufficient supervision at schools, on school buses and on field trips

Accidents can occur on any type of property, including big box stores, malls, hotels, casinos, strip malls, private homes, schools and community pools. Regardless of where your accident took place, we can help.

If You Have Been Injured On Dangerous Property

If you have been injured on another’s property, it is important to get the medical attention you need. Many serious personal injuries seem minor at first. If left undiagnosed and untreated, they can cause serious harm. For example, concussions and nerve damage can lead to permanent impairments. And the effects of a head injury can actually get worse if left untreated.

It is also critical to talk with a lawyer about your legal options. Many people are reluctant to take legal action because they do not want to hurt the homeowners responsible for the injury. If you are worried, you should know that the lawsuit seeks compensation from the homeowner’s insurance. Insurance usually covers these injuries. In fact, that is what it was created for — to compensate injury victims for the harm they experience. Homeowners pay premiums to benefit from the protection of insurance.
