Liability For a New Jersey Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Accident on Another Party’s Premises
You slipped, you fell, and you are injured. Who is responsible for your injuries? Can you seek recovery for your medical bills and out of pocket expenses? You may be entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries in certain slip and fall or trip and fall accidents. Your New Jersey personal injury lawyer will look at the specific facts of your case to determine who is liable for your injuries.
Determining Liability in a Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Case
Determining who is liable in a slip and fall or trip and fall case is a rather difficult task. However, in most cases, even if your lack of attention resulted in your fall, you may still be able to hold the property owner responsible for your injuries.
In order to determine whether the property owner is liable, your New Jersey personal injury lawyer will first investigate the specific facts of your case. If he determines that the premises was not properly maintained or the owner was aware or should have been aware of the dangerous conditions, you may be able to successfully get compensation for your injuries, including:
- Medical costs
- Loss of wages and loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Other out of pocket expenses
But in order to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve, it is imperative that you collect and record as many elements surrounding your claim as possible. Your New Jersey personal injury lawyer will need as much evidence as possible to prove your case.
