Were You Injured By A Safety Hazard Or Dangerous Condition?
Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition, free of hazards to patrons and guests. If you suffered significant injury through no fault of your own, the owner may be liable for your losses and suffering.
Premises liability cases require prompt investigation and attention to detail. The personal injury attorneys of Faugno & Associates, L.L.C., know how to work these cases to maximize compensation. We represent the injured in Hackensack and surrounding communities of northern New Jersey.

Slip-And-Falls And Premises Liability Law
A slip-and-fall is a personal injury case that arises when a person slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. In legal terms, this is known as premises liability. Slip-and-fall accidents can stem from:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Rain, ice or snow that is not cleared within a reasonable time after a storm
- Worn carpeting
- Broken or missing handrails on stairs
- Unexpected step-ups or drop-offs
- Dim lighting or broken lights
- Unmarked wells or holes in the ground
- Sidewalks that are uneven or have hidden gaps
Our attorneys at Faugno & Associates, L.L.C., can help prove that the property owner negligently created the hazardous condition or knew (or should have known) about the hazard and failed to have it removed or repaired. We will investigate the scene of the accident, gather evidence and build a strong claim on your behalf. As a team of trial-tested litigators, we can advise on the best options for reaching a fair settlement and when it is in your best interests to take a case to trial.
The Skill And Resources To Protect Your Interests
You should not have to absorb the losses for an accident caused by a property owner’s negligence. By pursuing a slip-and-fall claim, you not only protect yourself by obtaining necessary compensation, but you also help others avoid suffering similar injuries by holding the owner accountable.
