Your Slip-and-Fall Liability Lawyers
Slip-and-fall accidents occur when someone slips, trips or falls as a result of dangerous property or conditions. These conditions can include torn carpeting, wet floors, poor lighting or cracked sidewalks. Injuries also can occur due to hidden potholes, stairs, escalators or weather conditions such as rain, ice or snow. If you have been injured due to a slip-and-fall accident, it is in your best interests to seek representation from a skilled lawyer.
The team at Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., has been helping clients recover for their injuries since 1983. Our attorneys know how to examine the accident scene and evidence to determine if property owners are negligent. If you are entitled to compensation, we are fully prepared to advocate on your behalf in negotiations and the courtroom.
We Are Skilled Premises Liability Attorneys Who Know The New Jersey Legal System
Determining slip-and-fall cases can be complicated. Often, it may be difficult to determine who is at fault. In New Jersey, the owner or operator of commercial property is responsible for accidents caused on their property. Determining fault in matters involving private property, however, can become more complex.
We are Somerville slip-and-fall attorneys with experience in all areas of premises liability law. To determine if you have a case, we will meet one-on-one with you to understand the circumstances surrounding your accident. If necessary, we will consult with experts to determine if the property is not up to code. As your attorney, we can handle all direct communication with involved parties so you can focus on recovery.
Property owners will typically refuse to pay you anything unless you can prove liability. This can be hard to do without an attorney’s help. The best way to build a strong case is to reach out to one of our lawyers. There are also several things you can do to help. First, take pictures of the unsafe condition before it is cleaned up or corrected. You should get the names of witnesses and their contact information as well. Remember to also seek out medical attention and keep all your records. We can help you combine this information in order to hold the negligent party accountable.
