A: In certain situations, Pennsylvania law allows for a landlord, property management company and/or owner of a property to be held liable for snow/ice accumulations that cause fall accidents. Read more about landlord liability for snow and fall accidents at apartment complexes.
In order to succeed in a slip and fall case against a landlord, there must be evidence of negligence, whether it’s failing to shovel and salt appropriately or ignoring complaints of specific dangerous conditions. Also, many factors affect liability in snow/ice fall down cases, such as:
- extent of snow/ice,
- time/day of the accident,
- location of the accident, and
- whether the landlord has an office on the grounds.
Every case is unique and should be evaluated by a slip and fall accident lawyer.
