The most common type of slip and fall accident is a premises liability accident. A premises liability accident occurs when you suffer an injury on someone else's property. As a guest on the property (and sometimes even as a trespasser), you have a certain right to expect the owner or occupier of the property to keep the premises reasonably safe for visitors.

A premises liability claim can be difficult to win without the help of an experienced Philly slip and fall lawyer. Fortunately, Alan J. Tauber enjoys an impressive record of wins in slip and fall cases. Tauber Law services personal injury victims in PA and NJ.

  • Medical treatment expenses;
  • Rehabilitation therapy expenses;
  • Lost earnings, if you had to take time off work or quit your job;
  • Pain and suffering;

What Our Clients Say

Alan personally handled the investigation in my case that uncovered explosive facts about one of the defendants which had an important impact on the settlement of the case. His personal commitment made all the difference.
After other lawyers rejected my case, Alan saw the merit, did the needed investigation and won me a settlement I thought I might never see.
Alan's never say die attitude led to him discovering the existence of a second insurance policy that covered the accident and nearly tripled the settlement value in our case. It has had a big impact on our lives. As far as I am concerned, Tauber Law is the best Philadelphia personal injury law firm out there.

How long do you have to file a slip & fall claim?

Your ultimate deadline for filing a slip-and-fall claim is determined by the Pennsylvania personal injury statute of limitations. For most victims, the deadline is two years after the date of the accident, although certain exceptions exist. If you miss the statute of limitations deadline, your claim will die. You won't even be able to revive it at the negotiating table.

Do most slip and fall cases require a court trial?

No. The overwhelming majority of slip and fall cases end with a private settlement agreement, not a courtroom verdict Nevertheless, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit for tactical reasons. Even if you file a lawsuit, however, the odds of a trial are slim.
