Cherry Hill Slip & Fall Lawyer
Cherry Hill, New Jersey slip and fall accidents are more common that you probably realize. That’s because most falls do not thankfully result in injury. However, when your or a loved one are injured, New Jersey law will hold the property owner or manager responsible if the fall was caused by a dangerous condition. The term “slip and fall” refers to any incident where someone is injured after slipping, tripping, or falling on the property of another. In a wintry climate like Cherry Hill, New Jersey, these accidents are frequently caused by slippery weather conditions. But other times, falls result from the failure to take the necessary steps to properly maintain a property so it is safe for intended uses. If you or a loved one need a Cherry Hill Slip & Fall Lawyer, contact me, Joseph Monaco, to learn your rights to receive an award of monetary damages.
Negligent Conditions that can Cause a Cherry Hill Slip and Fall Accident:
- Loose or uneven stairways
- Poorly lit or unmarked stairways
- Turned up or ripped carpet
- Wet mopped floors
- Snowy or icy sidewalks
- Holes in parking lots
- Cracked or uneven walkways
- Cluttered retail isles
- Dropped food at a buffet or fast food restaurant
- Building code violations
Most of these conditions occur because the property owner or manager did not put safety first. They have a duty to fix known or discoverable dangers that can lead to an invitee or guest being injured. Correcting a known danger is usually a pretty simple task such as putting down a rubber mat when it is raining or fixing a loose stairway handrail. Failure to take proper precautions is reckless or negligent conduct that will hold the property owner or manager liable for the harm caused to others.
When a fall happens, it is important to have someone take photographs of the dangerous condition while you are still at the scene. With cell phone cameras, this is a simple task to accomplish. Many conditions such as an icy walkway are temporary and will no longer be there the following day or week. Don’t overlook this crucial step. The failure to take photographs could lead to you losing your case.
