We Fight For Just Compensation In Slip, Trip And Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall is a legal term for personal injury cases that arise when a person slips and falls as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition, free of hazards to patrons and guests. In legal terms, this is known as premises liability. Slip-and-fall cases stem from many types of hazards, including:
- Carpeting in disrepair
- Uneven flooring
- Inadequate lighting
- Wet or slippery floors
- Rain, ice or snow that is not cleared within a reasonable time after a storm
- Unmarked wells or holes in the ground
- Sidewalks that are uneven or have hidden gaps
- Inadequate security
Slip-and-fall cases are litigated under the legal theory of negligence. If you are injured in a premises liability accident in Hackensack or elsewhere in New Jersey, 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.
Once you obtain our services, 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 when it is best to explore options for reaching a settlement and when it is in your best interests to take a case to trial.
