Galloway Township Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are known under New Jersey law as premises liability cases. Meaning that the owner, tenant, manager or occupier of a premises (property) has a duty to keep the premises safe for its intended or foreseeable uses. Slip and fall injuries can occur in many locations including some that will be quite unexpected. You or your child can fall at a friend or relative’s house or apartment complex, supermarket, retail mall, restaurant, or motel. Slipping and falling often happens when something is spilled or leaked onto the floor such as water or oil. But they may also result from broken stairs, icy walkways, cracked concrete, falling fixtures or leaking refrigerators. Regardless of the scenario, if you or your child have been injured in Galloway Township because of a defective property or dangerous condition, you are entitled to an award of monetary compensation for harm including lost wages, medical bills, disfigurement or pain and suffering.
