Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe. When they don't, catastrophic injuries can occur. Icy stairs, inadequate security, wobbly railings, unattended swimming pools, malfunctioning escalators, and improper lighting are just a few examples of the hazards that lurk on negligently maintained properties.
These hazards often cause accidents that bring about unimaginable pain and suffering. Individuals who have endured pain and suffering, as well as expenses and possibly lost pats and/or future wages and income as a result of property safety issues may be entitled to significant compensation. Unsafe premises have been responsible for slip and fall and other cases resulting in:
- Broken bones
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Head injury
- Severed limbs

Under the leadership of James E. Hockenberry, Esquire, who has more than 15 years of experience litigating complex personal injury cases, our skilled and knowledgeable attorney team has successfully litigated many premises liability cases. They include:
- We handled a lawsuit against state and local government as well as private parties regarding negligent roadway design that caused catastrophic injuries to a man riding a motorcycle. The case included complex issues involving governmental immunity, optics, engineering, and human factors. Our client's claim was resolved with a settlement in the high six figures.
- In a situation involving an accident in which an automobile driver struck and seriously injured a minor child walking in a parking lot, we filed a lawsuit against a large hospital and the vehicle driver. The child suffered skull fractures and a significant orthopedic injury. The issues involved included site distances, safe pedestrian walkways, and parking lot design. Our client's claim was resolved with a six-figure settlement.
- We secured a substantial six-figure settlement for an elderly individual who slipped and fell on ice in a commercial parking lot. The defendants denied any wrongdoing, but the plaintiff was able to prove using standards of snow and ice maintenance, thorough discovery, and appropriate experts, that the defendants failed to ensure the premises were safe despite knowing a large number of people walk in the area every day.
