Public slip and fall accidents often occur when a business, governmental agency, public school or university fails to adequately maintain or repair its property.

Determining Liability In Public Slip And Fall Accidents
Slip and fall injury cases fall under an area of the law known as premises liability. Property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises reasonably safe for all who enter. If someone is injured due to dangerous conditions on a property, the owner may be liable for their damages. Dangerous conditions can include uneven flooring, poor lighting on walkways and stairs, items on the floor that pose a tripping hazard, wet floors and ice and snow on sidewalks and parking lots.
Filing A Slip And Fall Personal Injury Claim
When negotiating an insurance settlement or bringing a lawsuit in a public slip and fall case, you must prove that the business’ or property owner’s negligence caused your injury. If you were injured in a public place such as a school, park or municipal building, you will most likely have to seek compensation from the government agency that’s responsible for that property. Recovering compensation in personal injury claims against government agencies is much more difficult than in claims filed against individuals or private companies. It’s also important to keep in mind that local, state and federal governments have strict procedures and deadlines for making personal injury claims and often limit the amount of damages you can receive.
Regardless of whether you were injured on public or private property, it’s vital to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney before you give a statement or sign anything from a business, public entity or its insurance company. Our seasoned legal team at Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman understands the nuts and bolts of proving negligence under New Jersey premises liability law—we will assess your case and advise you on the most effective course of action to protect your rights and recover maximum compensation for your injuries.
