At Console and Associates, our goal is to get you the compensation you deserve. We have years of experience with Pennsylvania’s slip and fall laws, and we put that experience to work for you. Getting you as much money as possible is the goal of any lawyer, but at Console and Associates we don’t stop there.
We know that you have a lot on your plate and that recovery is its own full-time job. That’s why we make it our priority to make the claim process as easy as possible and to help you through this already difficult situation however we can.
If you or a loved one were injured in a slip and fall, you’ve come to the right place.
Slip & fall claims depend on evidence. You need to prove that someone else’s actions caused your injury. If you’re trying to file a claim on your own, gathering the evidence can take forever. From the moment you hire us, you’ll have a dedicated member of our team researching your case.
You’ll have someone on your side who knows what to look for. They’ll get to the bottom of what happened. Did the property owner have a history of lax maintenance practices? Were there earlier unaddressed reports of the same safety hazard that caused you to fall? Is there video footage that shows what happened? We’ll find out and use the evidence we collect to build your case.
Other attorneys might put your claim in a pile, only getting to it when they feel like it. We won’t. At Console and Associates, we launch our investigation right away because we know how important the claim is to you. We’ll get essential evidence, including photo and video surveillance footage before it disappears.
Like other states, Pennsylvania has a statute of limitations on when you can file a slip and fall claim. We don’t mess with deadlines. Once you call us, we start working for you and won’t stop until you receive your compensation.
Once you hire us, we’ll handle every interaction with the defendant and its insurance company. By the time they contact us, most of our clients already tried dealing with the property owner on their own. They’re often frustrated by these encounters.
Corporations don’t want to take responsibility for your injuries and their insurance companies don’t want to pay. Instead, they’ll try to make the process so difficult that you give up and accept the smallest possible offer. They know that most people don’t know how to negotiate a claim or what the law entitles them to.
Chances are they tried to tell you that the property owner was already investigated and found not liable. They’ll try to convince you that the accident was your fault when you know it’s not. These tactics don’t work with us.
You have the right to a reasonable expectation of safety if you’re invited on someone else’s property. This isn’t just common sense, it’s Pennsylvania law. If the property owner didn’t meet this reasonable expectation, they’re at fault. We know PA law better than anyone, so we won’t let them get away with their tricks. If they’re responsible, we work hard to hold them accountable.
While you focus on recovery, we’ll deal with the insurance companies until it’s time for them to write you a check.

This is the most common question we hear from slip and fall victims. The quickest way to get an answer is by discussing what happened with one of our attorneys.
Slip and fall claims are complex, and details, even those you might not consider important, matter. Your case is unique, and so we’ll have to know more about it before we can tell you if you have a claim or how much it’s worth. What we can do is give you an idea of the most common types of claims we see.
Pennsylvania laws about slip and fall accidents are clear once you establish liability.
Generally, a successful slip and fall claim happens when a property manager failed their duty. They have the responsibility to create a reasonably safe environment. This includes: spills, ice, snow, and hazardous objects.
How much your claim is worth depends on the details of your injury. See our Case Studies above for a few of the large slip & fall claims we won for our clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

We’ve helped clients who’ve had every injury a slip and fall could cause. For some, the disability caused by the injury was temporary, though still significant. Others were never able to make a complete recovery – even enough to return to their old job or hobbies.
If you have a viable slip and fall lawsuit, we’ll do everything we can to recover the damages that resulted from your injury.
How much is your case worth? You’ll never know unless you call.
Believe it or not, right now you do have a choice. If you don’t want to file a claim, you could accept the unfair consequences and choose to face them alone. Or, you can stand up for your rights and make sure you get the help you need to hopefully recover.
It’s not your fault that store employees left unmarked spills on the floor. When you’re injured because of a poorly maintained sidewalk or parking lot you shouldn’t be responsible. It’s not your job to pay for the property owner’s failures.
If someone’s negligence caused you serious injury, it’s important to hold them responsible. If you don’t, their dangerous behavior could continue, putting others in danger or injury or death. PA’s civil liability system helps keep people safe, and by filing a claim you help your state accomplish this goal.
Pursuing a personal injury claim means that you stop being the victim and become a victor. You’re empowered – a survivor, someone who won’t back down or give up. You’re taking back control of your future and make sure you’re not limited by your injury. On top of this, you’re doing everything you can to help keep others safe.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of misconceptions about slip and fall lawsuits. Many victims don’t seek claims for money they’re owed because they fear it makes them look “sue-happy.” They’re worried about being the “kind of person who sues” because they see this as something negative. It’s not.
There’s a reason that Pennsylvania liability laws give you the right to compensation. The legal system doesn’t just allow you to do this – it was intentionally made to protect this right. If you’re injured due to the irresponsibility of others, filing a lawsuit is how you hold the property owner accountable. Property owners know that these accidents are their responsibility to prevent. That’s why they take out insurance policies to help cover your costs. They might not want to pay, but that does change the fact that they are financially responsible for the damages you have suffered.
The law is on your side, and companies have insurance to cover the cost of your recovery. Nothing good comes from opting not to pursue the rights you’re entitled to. The legal system doesn’t benefit from it and you certainly don’t. The property owner doesn’t benefit either, since their continued negligence could lead to a more serious injury. The only people helped by you not filing a claim are insurance companies. And remember, it’s their job to pay for legitimate claims like yours. Insurance companies love the myth about the “kind of person who sues” because it lets them avoid doing their job.
In the decades our Pennsylvania slip and fall lawyers have practiced law, we’ve helped thousands of clients. So we know what “the kind of person who sues” really means:
Our clients weren’t looking for an opportunity to sue. They didn’t want to have to pursue a personal injury claim of any kind, and they certainly didn’t want to get hurt. They didn’t choose this, but when it happened, they knew what their rights were. They sought the compensation that they are legally entitled to have. Their actions helped make businesses safer for everyone, preventing other injuries.
The type of person who sues is someone who wants to make the world a better place for others. They help create a system where people and companies are responsible for their actions. They’re someone like you.
If you want to get your life back on track after a slip and fall injury, pursuing a claim is the only way you’ll get the compensation you’re entitled to. We’re here to help make sure that nothing stands in your way.
We streamline the process, allowing you to focus on recovery and rest. While you do, our team of slip and fall attorneys handle all the paperwork for your claim. We know how expensive medical bills can be, so we have a No Fee Promise.

In fact, we make the process so easy and risk free that there is no reason you shouldn’t pursue a claim – and countless reasons you should.
