We Gather The Evidence For You

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 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 attorney’s 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.

We'll Deal With The Insurance Companies

Caution wet floor signOnce 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. That’s on purpose.

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. The 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 and 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 make them pay.

While you focus on recovery, we’ll deal with the insurance companies until it’s time for them to write you a check.

We'll Help You Find Medical Care

When it comes to advise on how to recover from your injury, you should always listen to your doctor.

But we know that many slip and fall victims aren’t sure how to begin the process of getting medical treatment. What kind of doctor do you need for injuries like yours? What if you’re having a hard time getting an appointment? And who’s going to pay for your treatment?
We’re used to these questions, and our experience helped us learn some of the answers.

We can help you look for the right kinds of specialists who know how to treat slip and fall injuries and have the ability to handle insurance billing. If needed, we’ll even help you schedule appointments to arrange for transportation to and from the doctor. If you’re not comfortable speaking in English, we’ll help you find a translator who can help.

If the property owner is at fault, they’re responsible for your bill, but they won’t pay until we settle the claim. Until then, your doctor will expect you to pay the bills, which can be costly, especially without insurance.

If you have a problem affording your medical care, let us know about it. We can’t make your bills go away, but there are still things we can do. We can explain your case to your doctor and ask them to wait to bill you until after we settle your claim.

Getting treatment for your injuries should always come first. We want to make sure that nothing prevents you from getting the care you need.

Slip and fall claims are complex, and they’re not easy to win. You need a lawyer who is up to the challenge and knows how to handle these difficult cases.

When you hire our firm, you’re getting more than an attorney. You’re getting an experienced partner, one who will always fight for you.

Do You Have A Claim?

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 attorney’s.

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. Below are a few of the large slip & fall claims we won for our clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey:

Disclaimer: Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances.

$475,000 For Black Ice
A phlebotomist (someone who draws blood) suffered a slip and fall on the job that kept her out of work – forever. After she fell on black ice in the lab’s parking lot, the numerous injuries to her spine, knee, and hip left her permanently disabled. We recovered $475,000 in money damages for her.
$400,000 From Target
A shopper at a Target retail store slipped on a clear puddle of bleach spilled near the entryway. The back injuries she suffered in the fall were so severe that she had to undergo two surgeries, and still needed to use a walker for assistance. We got her a $400,000 settlement.
$160,000 Philly Black Ice
A retiree fell in the icy parking lot of a Philadelphia condo and fractured his right arm seriously enough to require surgery. We got him $160,000 in compensation.

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.

Why You Should File A Slip & Fall Claim

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.

The Real “Type Of Person Who Sues”

Slip and fall victimUnfortunately, 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 the money they owe you, but that does change the fact that they owe you that money.

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 jobs.

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:

  • Someone whose injuries are serious enough to affect their life – maybe forever.
  • Someone who isn’t about to stand by and let their family pay for another person’s mistake.
  • Someone who wants to get better and is willing to work for it – not sit by and hope things will get better on their own.
  • Someone who wants to hold the person who hurt them accountable – and prevent others from suffering the same fate.
  • Someone who won’t let what’s already a multibillion dollar industry take advantage of them.
  • Someone who isn’t content to remain a victim.

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.
