Man Walking on Slippery, Snow Covered Steps

Were you injured in a slip and fall accident? If so, you may have grounds for a legal claim against the property owner in order to recover financial compensation for your injuries.

These cases can be complicated and difficult to deal with, particularly if the property owner attempts to deny liability and tries to prove that you were responsible for the incident. A New Jersey personal injury lawyer can assert your rights and help ensure that you are not taken advantage of by the property owner or by any insurance companies involved.

Who is Liable in a Slip and Fall Accident?

Depending on the case, the owner or manager of the property where your accident occurred may be held liable for negligence in maintaining the property. In improperly maintaining, fixing or inspecting the property, a person or entity may be held liable for causing hazardous conditions such as:



  • Broken or missing stair
  • Uneven walkway
  • Poorly lit walkway
  • Standing water or ice
  • Objects in the walkway
  • Slippery floor
  • Falling objects from shelves or displays
  • Loose ceiling tiles

If a property owner knows about a hazardous situation but cannot fix it immediately, he or she has the obligation to place a sign in clear view that warns others of the potential danger. A common example of this is a "wet floor" sign that you may have seen in various places.


Contact New Jersey slip and fall lawyer Edward C. Lutz today if you would like to learn more about your rights and legal recourse after being injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident.
