Joseph Hoffman

"As senior partner of the firm it is my responsibility to make sure your rights are protected, and of that you can be assured." - Joseph J. Hoffman, Jr.

Since 1978, Mr. Hoffman and his partner Kenneth A. DiMuzio, Sr., have been serving New Jersey and are proud to have accumulated these kind reviews from past clients...


If you were involved in a slip and fall accident, the attorneys at Hoffman DiMuzio may be able to assist you. For over 35 years, Hoffman DiMuzio has represented hundreds of slip and fall victims and recovered millions of dollars on their behalf, compensating them for pain and suffering, payment of medical bills and providing them with funds for future medical care.

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 from a wet floor, icy conditions, lack of appropriate handrail, defective stairs, uneven sidewalks, broken pavement or construction-related debris.

Other claims come from poor engineering or architectural designs or construction. Responsibility rests with the property owner, or with the person or company in charge of designing, building or keeping the property safe, such as a landscaper, snow removal company, property manager or engineer.

SLIP AND FALL LAWSUITS, settlements and awards

Not every fall gives rise to legal liability. Sometimes the owner or contractor is responsible and sometimes they are not. Responsibility to the injured person often depends on whether the one in control of the property acted reasonably under the circumstances.

Generally, the injured party must show that the person or entity in charge of property knew or should have known that the premises were in an unsafe condition, and reasonable steps were not taken to correct that condition.

If the one in charge created or caused the dangerous condition, he will likely be responsible. Additionally, there may be responsibility even if the one in charge did not cause the condition himself, but knew of the condition and failed to remedy or fix that condition.

Once fault is proven, the injured party must demonstrate the harm they suffered, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.


When you call Hoffman DiMuzio to setup your free consultation, we will advise you on your claim, answer any of your questions and explain your options moving forward. If you retain our firm, we will fight to prove that the negligent party was liable for your injuries and obtain a settlement or verdict. And most of all, if we don’t obtain compensation for your injuries, you owe us nothing.
