Slip & Fall Accidents - The Risks

Posted By Brandon J. Broderick, Attorney at Law

Under New Jersey law, all property owners have the legal duty to properly maintain and upkeep their buildings and grounds. If they fail to do so, and their negligence results in an accident or causes injuries to an individual, the property owner, operator or manager could be held liable for damages. This is true whether in a mall, office building, community center, city-owned property, government property or in a private residence. One of the main difficulties that victims of slip & fall accidents run into is in establishing proof that the property owner was aware of the imminent danger, or at least should have been aware of it, prior to the accident taking place, and that they failed to take proper action to remedy the problem. In such cases, it is in your best interest to document as much of the accident as possible.

Taking pictures of the accident scene, including what you believe caused the accident, any evidence that exists, a lack of proper lighting, cracks, potholes, obstructions, wet floors, and other details, could help in creating a case.
