Slip and fall incidents are no laughing matter. Injuries from slip and falls are responsible for millions of emergency room visits every year, and nearly 15 percent of all the injuries sustained in the workplace. Victims of this negligence sustain damages ranging from painful sprains and broken bones to more devastating injury, and even wrongful death. If you have tripped or slipped and fallen and hurt yourself in a poorly maintained building, on an icy walkway, or due to some other obstacle or issue as the result of negligent maintenance, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages. The Law Offices of John F. Marshall are experienced New Jersey personal injury lawyers, prepared to evaluate your claim and offer you skilled legal counsel.
About Slip & Fall Law
Slip and fall cases are part of the larger category of premises liability claims. Owners and lease holders are responsible for keeping their property safe. Whether you are a renter, visitor, customer or pedestrian in the area, you have the right to a reasonably safe area. Slip and fall cases are premises liability personal injury claims that result from falls and subsequent injuries that occur on someone else’s property. Some responsible parties in these cases include property management companies, landlords and owners of apartment buildings, malls, grocery stores, nightclubs, bars, spas, health clubs and a number of other locations.
Slip & Fall in New Jersey
New Jersey law advises that property owners must keep their property safe, and that anyone walking on the property must use reasonable care to avoid injury, even when encountering a potentially hazardous situation. You must be able to demonstrate that you are less than 51 percent responsible for your accident and injury to recover damages. When you are injured from a slip, stumble, trip or step and fall in New Jersey, you typically only have two years to file a claim in Superior Court.
