14 Apr Slip and Fall Accidents and Injuries
Representing Premises Liability Cases in Hackensack, West New York and Greater New Jersey
All property owners have a responsibility for the upkeep and maintenance of their property, which is to be kept in reasonably safe conditions and should not pose any threats to visitors. If a dangerous or hazardous condition exists, it is the duty of the property owner to post signs warning visitors of the dangers in an effort to reduce the chance of an injury accident occurring. When a property owner does not sufficiently maintain their property, and/or fails to warn visitors of threatening conditions and a visitor is injured as a result, the owner may be held responsible for the victim’s injuries and other damages.
If you experience a slip and fall or injuries on the property of another person or organization due to unsafe or dangerous conditions, the property owner may be held liable for your injury, and you may be entitled to compensatory damages for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and the treatment of your injuries.
We handle all types of premises liability injuries, including those arising out of:
- Weather-related situations
- Falling off balconies
- Inadequate security
- Failure to warn of or correct hazardous or dangerous conditions
- Falling down stairs, falls in stores, obstacles in pathways or aisles
- Floors that are cracked, uneven, or are missing tiles
- Floors that are wet or slippery
- Improper safety measures
- Poorly maintained or improperly installed railings
- Broken stairs, broken steps
- Dangerous stairwells or landing areas
- Pool accidents
- Dangerous sidewalks, cracks in the sidewalk, potholes

- Workplaces that are inherently dangerous, especially construction sites
Injuries from slip and fall accidents (and other premise liabilities) can range from mild to severe: lacerations, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, internal bleeding, head trauma, broken hip, broken ribs, and more.
After an accident, it will be very important for an investigation to conclude the cause of the fall, as well as whether it could have been prevented or not. When someone is injured because of another person or businesses’ negligence, the injured victim may be able to receive compensation for their injuries and accident-related losses from all negligent parties.
Seeking the counsel of a lawyer that has experience handling similar cases can help injured victims learn more about their legal rights, in addition to learning what the best course of action to take might be in order to hold a negligent property owner liable.
