A: Yes, under Pennsylvania sidewalk accident liability laws, there is no requirement that you have a picture of the defect. Although a picture is helpful, a trip and fall case can still be successful. Even though no picture was taken right away, an investigator may be able to take pictures of the defect days, weeks or even months later. It is best to speak to a knowledgeable Pennsylvania trip and fall lawyer immediately. Read about tips to follow after a slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania.
It is important to get medical treatment for all injuries, even those that may become prominent in the days following the accident. In many sidewalk fall situations, what appeared to be a sprain can later turn out to be a tendon tear or slight fracture. Read more about sidewalk fall down accidents in Pennsylvania here.
