Newark Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

When property owners allow dangerous conditions to exist on their property, they risk the safety of anyone who visits the premises. One such danger is slippery or wet floors, or conditions that obscure tripping hazards. When slip or trip hazards are not addressed quickly, there’s a chance a passerby will fall down and get hurt. If their injury is serious, they may be able to pursue what is called a premises liability claim to recover compensation for the expenses their injury caused them to accrue.

At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, we are thoroughly versed in all types of premises liability cases, including those involving slip and fall or trip and fall incidents. Our lead attorney, Todd Leonard, is a New Jersey Supreme Court Civil Trial Lawyer who has been recognized by Super Lawyers® as well as the National Trial Lawyers Association. He is also a member of the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is an elite group of trial lawyers who have won settlements and verdicts for clients in those dollar ranges.

Slip and Fall Cases

Slip and fall injury accidents due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party fall under the legal concept of premises liability. Many variations of such an accident may result in seeking compensation through workers’ compensation benefits, through a claim against the premises owner’s insurance policy, or through a claim against a governmental agency.

The basis of your slip and fall claim rests on the negligence of the property owner or manager who failed in their expected duty of care in providing a reasonably safe environment. Slip and fall incidents may occur due to any number of hazards found on private or commercial property, including:

  • Broken floor tiles
  • Broken handrails
  • Inadequate, missing, or broken lighting on paths, hallways, or stairwells
  • Broken or faulty equipment at playgrounds
  • Snow
  • Ice
  • Potholes

These claims can be complicated and difficult, which is why you will need the services of a proven and trusted Newark slip and fall attorney. Cases require thorough investigation and documentation, such as immediate photographs of the scene of the accident as well as the preservation of important evidence, including witness statements, police reports, and more. Our firm can fully investigate your case and build your claim with the help of professional experts. Getting sound legal advice as soon as possible is critical to a successful outcome.
