Slip-and-falls are one of the most common types of premises liability accidents. These injuries can happen virtually anywhere, including sidewalks, parking lots, shopping centers, nursing homes, office buildings, schools and government buildings.
At Miller, Kistler & Campbell in central Pennsylvania, our attorneys represent the victims of slip-and-fall injuries as well as other accidents caused by dangerous property:
- Falls from balconies, stairways, roofs or other high places
- Escalator and elevator accidents
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
- Assault or sexual assault caused by insufficient security
- Injuries caused by fire, flood or other natural disaster (some insurance policies may exclude “acts of God”)
- Accidents at tourist attractions, including amusement parks
We sometimes represent businesses and insurers defending against premises liability claims. To learn more about our defense practice, please contact us for a consultation.
What if I don’t want to Sue the Property Owner?

We understand this hesitation, and we encourage you to contact us to discuss your concerns. Do keep in mind that the property owner’s insurance company will often cover the costs associated with the accident. These insurance policies exist for situations just like yours.
