April Showers Bring Slip-and-Fall Accidents! How to Get Compensated

slip and falls

With spring’s arrival comes rain and the thawing and melting of snow and ice. The resulting water gets tracked into commercial properties, and that can cause slip-and-falls at or near the entrances of those properties. Unless the water is dirty, many people just don’t see it accumulated on store floors. Should a person slip and then fall from that accumulation, the owner or occupier of the property can be held liable for the victim’s injuries and damages. The New Jersey personal injury lawyers at Faloni & Associates here in Fairfield have been helping clients who were injured in slip-and-fall accidents for more than 40 years. We want to help you too.

When there is a dangerous condition at or near the entrance of a commercial premises that the the owner or occupier of the property knew or should have known about, a duty arises for that owner or occupier to either remedy the condition or warn anybody approaching it of it of it. Failure to remedy the condition or warn of it can result in a determination of liability and an award of personal injury damages. What can come to issue in New Jersey slip-and-fall cases is the issue of comparative negligence. If an injured claimant’s negligence is greater than that of the owner or occupier of the property where the claimant fell, that claimant’s claim can fail.

The issues of notice of the condition and any comparative negligence on behalf of the claimant are legally complex. They require the involvement of experienced and aggressive slip-and-fall attorneys.
