Walking On A Sidewalk Shouldn’t Be Dangerous

Property owners in the Philadelphia area are required to keep the sidewalks that run along their property free from hazards and safe for those who use the walkway. When property owners fail to do this, pedestrians can suffer serious injuries. If you have been hurt by unsafe sidewalk conditions that a property owner should have fixed or warned you about, you have options.

Attorney Lauren Levin Geary and her knowledgeable staff can help you understand exactly what those options are, and provide you with the information and advice you need to decide on a course of action. With us you receive direct attention from an experienced attorney, and we take the time to fully assess your case and carefully listen to your questions and concerns.

Our main goals? To help you maximize the compensation you receive, and to make you feel like a member of our extended family along the way. For a free consultation, call or contact us online. We are here to help.

Act Fast, Or Important Evidence Could Disappear

Sidewalk accidents, especially trip-and-falls and slip-and-falls, are commonly caused by:

  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Loose bricks in a walkway
  • Cracks or heaves caused by tree roots
  • Faulty construction
  • Loose metal grates
  • Open metal doors set in sidewalks
  • Icy pavement and failure to clear snow
  • Code violations
  • Failure to warn of a known hazard

When considering a Pennsylvania property owner negligence claim, time is of the essence. Without immediately doing a complete investigation, critical evidence may disappear. Contact us as soon as possible so that we can help keep this evidence from being lost forever.
