Slip and Fall Accidents
A serious slip and fall is no joke when it happens to you or a family member. Falls are one of the leading causes of serious injury in the United States, with tens of billions of dollars of medical care going to treat injuries, including broken bones, brain and head injuries, and spinal injuries, among others. If you have experienced a slip and fall on another person’s property – or any other injury due to dangerous conditions on the property, such as a burn, inhalation of toxic fumes, or even a violent assault – you may be able to win significant recovery for your injuries against the property owner through filing a personal injury lawsuit.
At SK Law, we aggressively fight for maximum recovery for victims across New Jersey and New York City who have suffered premise liability injuries through slip and falls and other accidents, including a $400,000 settlement for a client injured while exiting a New Jersey train, and a $257,000 judgment for a client who slipped in a retail store.
When a Landowner is at Fault for Your Slip and Fall
Slip and fall cases and other lawsuits involving injuries on another’s property are based on the legal concept of premise liability, which says that a landowner has a legal obligation to make his property safe from dangerous artificial and natural conditions for the benefit of guests, customers, and other visitors.
If you suffer injury from a slip and fall or other dangerous condition on another’s property, a court will look at whether the landowner acted reasonably in monitoring the property for unsafe conditions, and then taking the appropriate action to either remedy the condition (e.g. clean up a spill) or warn visitors (e.g. put up an appropriate barrier around the dangerous area).
Landowners will often try to argue that, even where a visitor was injured, that it did act reasonably under the circumstances and/or that you the victim were at fault. When you contact one of our attorneys as soon as possible after an accident, we can immediately take aggressive action to assess the accident and collect physical, medical, and eyewitness evidence in your favor to make your best case for recovery.
