Advocating For Your Rights Creative, Fair & Flexible Solutions

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 against a:

  • homeowner;
  • homeowner’s association (HOA);
  • renter;
  • 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 like, though?

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.

Rest While We Work on Your Claim

Staying put after a slip and fall accident is important for your recovery, as your doctor will likely tell you.

That’s why our slip and fall accident attorneys at Stolfe Zeigler New Jersey Divorce Group in South Jersey offer our legal services from start to finish of your claim. It is just one of many ways that our legal team prioritizes your comfort and client satisfaction.
