A: There is a possibility for liability against parties who either owned, operated, managed or maintained the area of the fall. In workplace accidents, injured workers may make workers’ compensation claims. However, there may be a tort claim against other parties, like a building manager or operator.
Slip and fall cases in Pennsylvania require proof of notice of the condition. In other words, in order to succeed, the injured party must prove that the defendant knew or should have known about the defect or condition.
