Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
Every year, a large number of people are injured in slip and fall accidents across the country. Some of the most common causes are:
- Wet, slippery or icy surfaces
- Poorly lit walkways, hallways and staircases
- Cluttered walkways, hallways and staircases
- Uneven surfaces
- Loose flooring or carpeting
When you fall, it doesn't automatically mean you have a case. Our lawyers can determine if someone is responsible for allowing or creating the conditions that led to your fall and resulting injuries.
How Do You Know If You Have a Slip and Fall Claim?
If someone else's negligence or carelessness is the cause of your slip and fall accident, then you may have a claim to pursue compensation for your injuries. In these types of cases, the slip and fall accident is often the fault of a business or of a property owner.
Although each case is unique, some of the things you may need to demonstrate in order to be eligible for compensation are:
- The owner's actions or inaction led to the conditions that caused you to slip and fall
- The owner knew about the unsafe environment and did nothing to remedy it
- The owner failed to warn you of unsafe conditions so you could avoid a slip and fall
These situations can be complex, and you may feel frustrated and unsure of what to do next. Our attorneys have extensive experience with the precedents and laws related to slip and fall liability in New Jersey, and we can begin building a case to pursue compensation on your behalf. You should not have to deal with the financial, physical and emotional consequences of your injury without the opportunity to hold the responsible party accountable.
