What are the requirements to file a Vineland slip and fall lawsuit?
In order to file a winning lawsuit for a Vineland slip and fall, you will need to prove that the property owner or occupant was negligent in keeping the property safe for its intended uses. In a nutshell, the slip and fall accident must have been caused by a dangerous condition the owner or property manager failed to fix or warn about. New Jersey laws leave room for interpretation. Given such, these lawsuits are best left to be sorted out by a seasoned New Jersey Slip and Fall Lawyer. For over 25 years, I, Joseph Monaco, have attended to the legal needs of thousands of clients. I take great pride in getting to personally know my clients so I can be in the best position to advocate on their behalf.
What laws govern Vineland slip and fall cases?
Vineland slip and fall cases, whether they occur indoors or outdoors, fall under a legal concept known as premises liability. The fundamental rule of fault for premises liability cases is whether the property owner, tenant, manager or other occupier knew or should have known that a dangerous condition existed which could cause someone to fall and get hurt. In a business setting such as a store or office, the owner has a duty to inspect the property to uncover dangerous conditions. As you can imagine, causes of slip and falls or other types of premises liability cases can vary considerably. Indoor falls often arise from torn or loose carpet, uneven flooring or stairs, poorly lit stairways and substances or liquids falling upon the ground. Outdoor Vineland slip and fall incidents are often caused by ice and snow that hasn’t been properly shoveled, cracked and uneven sidewalks and walkways, potholes in parking lots and roadways or oil on the ground at a gas station. The possibilities are endless. Unexpected traumas occur on a daily basis.
Why Choose Joseph Monaco for your Vineland premises liability lawsuit?
I have been proudly representing injury victims and their families with dedication for over 25 years. My greatest compliment is a referral from a past client. This shows that I am making a difference. And from a legal standpoint, personal injury and wrongful death cases are hard fought by the big insurance companies. Victims will never receive justice if they do not level the playing field by hiring a trial lawyer with courtroom experience. It is the burden of the injury victim to prove his or her case in court and the insurance companies are not going to make this easy. In fact, it is their goal to put profits ahead of fair monetary compensation. As a New Jersey Trial Lawyer, I have handled thousands of cases including trying cases before a jury.
An early, thorough investigation of the facts should always be a priority so a case can be proven with detail and professionalism. It must be proven that the property owner or other occupier created a dangerous condition or knew or should have known that one developed in another manner, and that the dangerous condition could cause someone to fall and become injured. Further, the litigation process can be very time consuming by getting bogged down with backlogged court dockets. This is where an experienced lawyer comes into play. Call me. You will not be disappointed.
What if my Vineland slip and fall involves a governmental agency?
In New Jersey, slip and fall injuries can be caused by defective city streets or other municipal properties. A claim against the State of New Jersey or City of Vineland must be reported in writing within 90 days or it will be barred forever. The government has the benefit of certain immunities that can make it difficult to bring a claim. Having a competent slip and fall lawyer on your side is even more crucial when taking on big government. Call or text me, Joseph Monaco, at 609-277-3166 for a Free Consultation.
