How to Win a Slip and Fall Case

With over three times the national average, Erie, Pennsylvania gets about 45 inches of snow each year. While beautiful, snow can have its downsides. One drawback to its beauty is the incidence of slip and fall accidents on icy surfaces. Injuries are common and the cost of being laid up and treating a broken arm or leg can be high. If the mishap occurs in front of private property or a commercial business that failed to clear the sidewalks, it is possible to recover damages by filing a slip and fall claim. Winning the claim may be another matter.

Why Hire an Injury Lawyer after a Commercial Semi-Truck Accident?

A commercial semi-truck accident could leave an automobile driver severely injured and permanently disabled whereas truckers are usually uninjured in the crash.
