You can file a claim after you suffer a slip-and-fall injury

One common personal injury lawsuit stems from slipping and falling. When you slip and fall, you may hit your head, break bones, or suffer strains or sprains. While many slip-and-fall accidents take place in the winter months, it's not uncommon for people to slip and fall in the summer, spring, or fall. Sometimes wet, rainy days may conditions slick, and other times it's dangerous construction areas or other hazards that result in tripping.

Usually, the person who owns or possesses the land is the one who will be held liable for any injuries you suffer. Normally, that person is going to have to take legal responsibility for your injuries and pay the medical bills and other damages you've suffered because of the accident.

A few things that could result in slip-and-fall accidents in the summer months include inadequate outdoor lighting, like if stairs aren't lit or if cracks are hidden in the dark, dangerous parking lots, like those with deep pot holes, or dangerous sidewalks in some cases.

Other personal injuries could arise in cases of drowning or unintentional head injuries from slipping around pools or ponds. As more people come out into the heat, a higher population density can mean maintenance has to happen more often to prevent these injuries.

Our website has more information on slip-and-fall accidents in New Jersey and what to do if you've hurt yourself. Whether you have one medical bill or a lifetime of recovery ahead of you, you deserve to have information on filing a personal injury claim that could get you the compensation you require.
