Settlement of slip and fall accidents in New Jersey
Posted on Tuesday, May 15th, 2012
Our office was successful today in settling a slip and fall accident that occurred on commercial property with the assistance of a mediator. Our client, who was visiting New Jersey from Canada sustained serious injuries which required multiple knee surgeries when he slipped and fell on a wet floor that was just cleaned. He also incurred substantial medical bills.
Unfortunately there were no wet floor signs in the area where he fell.
In New Jersey the plaintiff must prove that the defendants knew or should have known about the condition that proximately caused their fall and injuries to be compensated.
Many times defendants argue lack of notice of the dangerous condition such as water on the floor.
In our case we were able to obtain a copy of the surveillance video of the fall in during the litigation process which clearly established that they created the condition which caused the accident.
It is essential that requests be made immediately following a fall on commercial property for any and all videos and/or photographs that may have captured the accident and that they be preserved for future use.
Our associate, J Sean Connelly and I , worked together as team to bring the case to a fair resolution.
