South Jersey Slip & Fall Accidents
Dedicated to Advocating for Our Clients
Whenever you are visiting someone else’s property, you have the right
to assume the premises are reasonably safe and free from slipping or tripping
hazards. If you do slip or trip and get seriously injured, then you likely
can file a slip and fall accident claim – sometimes called a trip
and fall accident claim – against the property owner. At Stolfe
Zeigler New Jersey Divorce Group in South Jersey, our slip and fall attorneys
proudly stand up for the wrongfully injured throughout our communities.
Give us a call at (732) 585-1651 if you need to file a slip and fall claim
- homeowner’s association (HOA);
- retail property;
- commercial property; or
- public municipality.
It is our goal to secure every penny of compensation you deserve after
a slip and fall accident. Medical costs, lost wages, pain, suffering,
emotional trauma, lessened mobility, or life expectancy, and more are
all types of damages we might be able to pursue in your claim.
Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
Property owners have the duty to protect you from unreasonable slip and
trip hazards on their property. What does an unreasonable hazard look
In slip and fall cases, the plaintiff usually slipped or tripped on:
- Raised carpeting
- Slippery tiling
- Loose gravel or dirt on concrete
- Cracked or split asphalt
- Uneven steps or stairs
- Stray electrical or networking cables
A slip hazard becomes unreasonable as soon as the property owner learns
about it and does nothing to correct it. For example, if someone spills
a cup of water on a back aisle of a quiet retail store, the manager will
likely not know about it immediately. Slipping on the water within minutes
of the spill may reduce the store’s liability because no staff members
had a chance to see the spill.
On the other hand, if the water spill pools for minutes on end and you
slip on it, then you likely have a slip and fall accident claim with validity.
It is reasonable to expect staff members to walk to store every few minutes
to look for customers and hazards alike.
