Dependable Advocacy, Honest Advice For Slip-And-Fall Victims
The New Jersey legal system has built-in criteria for slip-and-falls in premises liability cases. Did the property owner know (or should they have known) of the existence of the hazardous condition? Did they know about the problem, but fail to take action to fix it? Was the owner responsible for the presence of the condition? Simply falling is not in itself a cause of action in a slip-and-fall case. An experienced premises liability attorney can tell you whether your circumstances make you eligible to pursue legal action in a New Jersey court.
Union County Personal Injury Attorneys Represent New Jersey Slip-And-Fall Accident Victims
At the Morris County law firm of McHugh & Imbornone, P.A. Law Office, our lawyers help clients injured in slip-and-falls. Our managing partner, Salvatore Imbornone Jr., knows the legal issues associated with slip-and-fall accidents. Just as important, he knows how insurance companies respond to slip-and-fall claims because he worked for New Jersey insurers early in his career. He uses the knowledge gained in those years to help clients injured because of hazardous property conditions.
Where Trip-And-Fall Accidents Happen Most Often
Our New Jersey premises liability attorneys help clients injured because of slip-and-fall accidents at locations like:
- Retail establishments such as big-box stores, supermarkets, shopping malls, theaters and supermarkets
- Public property like parks, government offices, transportation stations, parking garages and ramps
- Hotels and resorts
- Private homes
- Places of employment
In all instances, the owner must have invited the injured person onto the property, directly or implicitly. For example, if you were injured while shopping, then you were implicitly invited onto the property by the store owner. The New Jersey slip-and-fall lawyers at McHugh & Imbornone, P.A. Law Office, will evaluate your situation and advise you about your rights and options after a slip-and-fall accident.
Devastating Slip-And-Fall Injuries
Individuals who fall, regardless of the circumstances, suffer a variety of injuries. The most common slip-and-fall injuries are:
- Tendon and ligament tears and other soft tissue injuries
- Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
In addition to these common injuries, most slip-and-fall victims experience cuts and abrasions. Although these may heal quickly, in some instances superficial wounds hide deeper injuries. It is important to have your injuries evaluated thoroughly after a slip-and-fall to determine their impact on your life.
