Slip and Fall Accidents in New Jersey
We Help Victims of Slip and Fall Accidents / Premises Liability Cases
Any accident occurring on property is a premises liability matter. Premises liability cases include slip and falls, which are sometimes referred to as trip and falls. Slip and fall accidents often occur when a property owner failed or neglected to keep their property in a safe condition. While slip and fall accidents are most commonly associated with property liability claims, premises liability lawsuits may also include accidents caused by faulty wiring or inadequate construction, which can result in fire and/or building collapse. The experienced South Jersey slip and fall lawyers at DiTomaso Law aggressively represent injured individuals and their families in premises liability matters throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, anytime and to anyone. Some of the more common locations where slip and fall accidents occur include commercial stores, shopping malls, supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, or any retail establishment. They can occur on private property, government property, public property, train platforms and bus terminals. They can occur on rental properties when a landlord fails to properly maintain the property.
There are a variety of sources that can contribute to slip and fall accidents. Some of the more common causes include ice and snow, unkempt stairwells, loose or broken handrails, uneven steps, defective sidewalks, pavements and/or curbs. They can occur as a result of a wet floor or a failure to clean a spill or place safety cones around a dangerous area, such as a sinkhole, absent manhole cover and/or a generally slippery area.
Knowledgeable, Aggressive Representation for Injury Victims in Premise Liability Lawsuits in South Jersey and the Philadelphia Region
Premises liability lawsuits, including slip/trip and fall injuries as well as all other types of slip and fall accidents, can be extremely complex. These cases often bring questions such as who will pay for my medical treatment, particularly if I have no insurance to cover my medical bills, and my lost wages while I am out of work. For example, did you know that the property insurance that is in place for the property where you fell can provide benefits to you while you are injured?
These cases require immediate legal attention so that the property insurance can be assessed. In addition, photographs must be taken, evidence must be gathered to preserve the scene of the accident, and to prevent the spoliation of evidence which is often integral to your case. In these cases, insurance companies can be quick to blame you for the accident when it is not your fault. They will try to have you admit that you weren’t paying attention, weren’t looking where you were going, or they will try to get you to admit you were distracted. Insurance companies will try to quickly deny your claim by taking a recorded statement to lock you in on your version of the accident and try to show that it was you who was at fault for the accident, or that you weren’t hurt in the accident, or both.
These accidents can produce a wide variety of personal injuries, which include all types of brain and head injuries, neck and back injuries, nerve damage, fractures, muscle strains and sprains, ligament strains and tears, joint injuries (including shoulder and knee tears), paralysis, eye injuries/loss of vision, amputations, burns and scars and disfigurement.
