Trip or Fall Injury

     New Jersey fall down law is complicated. The law has a number of very important distinctions about who is responsible for maintaining the property in a safe condition. Liability depends on who owns, controls, manages or leases property. These various distinctions may impact on the rights of one who is injured because of the negligence of any/all of these various defendants. Additionally, there are very important differences in the laws which apply to residential property owners as opposed to commercial property owners.

People are frequently injured when property owners fail to keep their property safe from harmful conditions.

     Property owners have a duty to reasonably maintain their property in a safe condition. When a property owner allows for unsafe or dangerous conditions to exist or negligently maintains his property, the owner may be held legally responsible for the injuries caused by the dangerous condition.

     Many accidents occur from sidewalks that are poorly maintained, i.e. cracked, broken or uneven sidewalks, unshoveled sidewalks or poorly shoveled sidewalks. Other examples of typical premise accidents are slippery floors in areas where people commonly walk, defective elevators, ceilings that collapse.

     The long term effect of such an accident can be very significant. Some victims go through surgeries, physical impairments, loss of normal everyday activities that we all take for granted.
