Slip And Fall Liability

slip and fall lawyers nj

Each year, over 8 million emergency room visits are due to slips, trips, and falls

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, the attorneys at Hoffman DiMuzio may be able to assist you. Slip and fall accidents can be serious and can occur almost anywhere. The most common slip and fall accidents occur at supermarkets, shopping malls, in parking lots and on sidewalks. These slips, trips or falls may occur as a result of a wet floor, icy conditions, lack of appropriate handrail, defective stairs, uneven sidewalks, broken pavement, or even construction related debris.

Slip And Fall Lawsuits

Not every fall gives rise to legal liability. Sometimes the owner is legally liable and sometimes they are not. The legal liability of the property owner often depends on whether the property owner acted reasonably under the circumstances.

Generally, the injured party will have to show that the property owner knew or should have known that the premises was in an unsafe condition, and failed to take reasonable steps to correct that condition. If the property owner actually created or caused the dangerous condition, he will likely be responsible for same. Additionally, there may be liability even if the owner didn’t cause the condition himself, but knew of the dangerous condition and failed to remedy or fix that condition. Furthermore, a property owner could be held liable even where the property owner did not actually know of the dangerous condition, but rather should have known of that condition because a reasonable person taking care of that property would have discovered that condition and corrected it.

Slip And Fall Settlements

After a valid complaint has been submitted and a property owner has been found to be liable for another’s injury, the injured party may be entitled to compensation. The slip and fall settlement amounts are determined for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses as well as other damages.
