Injured On Someone Else’s Property?
If you have been injured on someone else’s property due to the owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for everything you have lost. This area of law is known as premises liability.
I am attorney Gregory A. Stapp. I handle all types of personal injury claims, including premises liability cases. All Pennsylvania property owners have a legal duty to ensure that their property and land are maintained in a condition of reasonable safety.
The injured party must be able to prove that the property owner was aware of the danger and had adequate time to fix the condition yet failed to make the repair in a timely manner. In some cases, property owners purposefully create hazardous conditions on their properties. In these cases, you may also have legal grounds to file a premises liability claim.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property, arrange a consultation at my Williamsport office as soon as possible to preserve your rights.

I Fight Hard Against The Insurance Companies To Secure Your Injury Claim
I am aware of how hard insurance companies fight to deny valid property owner liability claims — and I fight back just as hard. I will gather all of the evidence necessary to make the strongest possible case for your claim and will aggressively defend your right to secure adequate compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other accident-related physical and financial hardships. You should not have to live a difficult life due to an accident that should not have occurred.
Some of the most common compensable injuries suffered on private and public property include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Sprained ankles
- Deep lacerations and scrapes
- Broken and fractured bones
- Head injuries
- Blunt force trauma
- Severe bruising
Injuries suffered in accidents can have serious and far-reaching effects on the quality of your life. Physical therapy and other medical expenses, missed work and inability to enjoy hobbies and leisure activities due to ongoing pain are examples of damages that are compensable.
