Injured in a Slip and Fall Accident?
Let Our Personal Injury Attorneys Help You Up
Jarring falls, trips and slips happen to people every day. These types of accidents can result in serious and life-altering injuries such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries. Many times, a dangerous condition caused a serious fall. Property owners, particularly businesses, have a responsibility to the public to ensure their premises are safe.
You may have fallen due to a missing hand rail, a broken or uneven step, a poorly designed or maintained staircase, an escalator mishap, a pot hole, debris or liquids left on the ground, inadequate lighting or improperly cleared snow or ice. If someone else’s negligence was the cause of your injury, we can help you get compensation from the responsible party. During the past four decades, we have built a significant reputation for results that you will appreciate.
Why is an Attorney Important After a Slip and Fall Accident?
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, we can help you get the compensation you deserve, even if you are partially at fault. New York and New Jersey both allow victims to recover money for their damages based on the defendant’s share of the responsibility.
- New York adheres to a pure comparative fault scheme; if the plaintiff is 90 percent at fault himself, he or she can still recover 10 percent of his damages.
- In New Jersey, as long as the plaintiff is 50 percent or less at fault, he or she can recover based upon the defendant’s share of liability. If you are more than 50 percent at fault, you recover nothing.
