Property Defect Claims
Slip/trip and falls, code violations, and hidden dangerous conditions
Everyone has heard the phrase "slip and fall" but do you know what that actually means according to the law? Businesses and property owners owe their visitors a duty of care to ensure that the property is free of hidden defects that could cause harm. Property defects often result in falls, but the key is the defective condition that caused the fall. Proving the defect is crucial as snow, ice, spills, and other foreign substances can easily be cleaned up after the fact. At North Hills Legal we'll explain your status on a given property and what duty was owed to you, so you can understand your rights and remedies if you've been injured as a result of a defect on someone else's property.
Insurance Claim Denials
Homeowners, disability claims, health insurance claims
As the former Co-Chair of the Insurance Bad Faith Section of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, I have experience suing insurance companies directly when they wrongfully deny a claim. Insurance is intended to be a safety net for when the unexpected happens. When insurance claims are denied the consequences to the policyholder can be catastrophic. The insurance company has in-house and outside counsel at its disposal. If your claim gets denied you should have an experienced insurance coverage attorney working for you.
