Personal Injury Attorney Edward C. Lutz Can Help Those Injured

Newark offers residents many employment opportunities. More than 100,000 people commute into the city each workday. The largest employer is Newark Liberty International Airport employing around 24,000 residents. Newark is the home to more than 400 small manufacturers producing food, apparel, chemicals, and metal fabrication. Few cities enjoy Newark's advantages of being the hub of major highways and having a large port, while benefiting from the resources of this area. The city has many white-collar employees that work in finance, insurance, and health care institutions throughout the city. In fact, Newark has more insurance firms per capita than any city in the United States except for two.

A nine-member council oversees the government of Newark. Voters elect five members from throughout the city and voters elect another four from individual wards to ensure that each part of the city receives equal representation. Luis A. Quintana is the acting mayor of Newark after voters elected long term mayor Cory Booker to the United States Senate. Quintana, Newark's first Latino mayor, will remain in office until June 30, 2014, when voters may elect a new mayor.

Newark is in Essex County. An elected County Executive who oversees a nine-member Board of Chosen Freeholders oversees the County's business. Like the city council, five of these members are elected at large from throughout the county, and four are elected from individual locations.

Newark falls into two Congressional Districts, the 8th and the 10th. It also falls into two state legislative districts the 28th and the 29th.

Although most businesses, government facilities and residences in Newark are safe for pedestrians and conform to building codes, that is not always the case. If you or your loved ones were injured through a slip or fall in Newark or surrounding towns, we are here to help. For over 30 years, the Law Offices of Edward C. Lutz has offered victims and their families the competent and aggressive legal counsel they deserve. Our firm has handled many matters on behalf of individuals who have sustained injuries in slip and fall accidents and other types of fall down accidents. New Jersey law requires that property owners take reasonable steps to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe for those who enter upon a property especially in a commercial setting. The owner of a store, such as a grocery store, cannot simply allow a hazardous condition such as water or food on the floor to exist for any period of time so as to create a hazard for customers who are there to shop and spend money. If it can be proven that you have sustained injuries as a result of a slip and fall or other type of fall down accident due to the negligence of the owner of the property, then New Jersey law enables you to receive money for your damages when the owner of the property is found to be negligent. Our firm has handled many cases involving slip and fall accidents arising from unsafe parking lots, unsafe conditions in grocery stores and other retail establishments as well as other locations.

Representing slip and fall injury victims throughout all of northern and central New Jersey, our firm uses experts to help determine the true value of your claim and to prove your case in court.
