What is a Willingboro Slip and Fall Accident?
Like many others, you might think that a slip and fall case is limited to someone slipping on a wet floor, or tripping over a broken sidewalk. However, liability for a fall can result many ways. For example, a stairway may be missing a handrail or have poor lighting at night. Someone may be injured at a warehouse as a result of unsafe docking procedures. Being wrongfully injured or killed can result from any dangerous condition of a commercial, governmental or private property. Here are additional ways someone can be wrongfully injured:
Falls at supermarkets and other retail businesses are quite common. They can occur from grapes spilling from a display onto the floor to a leaking refrigerator. Fortunately, New Jersey law is very favorable for fall victims by holding businesses responsible if the creation of the dangerous condition was foreseeable and resulted from normal business operations.
Willingboro Public Parks:
There are many parks that do not receive proper maintenance to be safe. This especially concerning knows that many parks are made to attract children. Playground equipment is often poorly maintained leading to falls or lacerations. In addition, there is very short time period for putting governmental agencies on notice of a personal injury claim. New Jersey law only allows 90 days to complete the applicable claim application. There are also specific laws regarding governmental immunity that have to be followed to bring a case against a township or other governmental body. Given such, it is critical contact me about your case as soon as possible.

Falls along sidewalks have special rules on who may be liable.
