Most Common Causes of Slip & Fall and Trip & Fall Accidents in Elizabeth, Edison, and Woodbridge, NJ

A slip and fall accident can happen anytime, anywhere, whether it’s a private home, an apartment complex, a hotel, a shopping mall, a retail store, a nightclub, a restaurant, an office building or a parking garage. Moreover, there are a number of situations that can lead to a slip and fall accident. Some of the most common causes of slip & fall accidents in NJ and NY include:

  • Insufficient lighting: A poorly lit area, such as a stairwell or parking lot, can result in slip & fall accidents that cause serious injuries.
  • Uneven walkways: A broken or cracked sidewalk leading up to a home or building can be a serious hazard that results in trip & fall injuries.
  • Snow or ice: Property owners have a duty to clear snow or ice from walkways and sidewalks. Moreover, snow and ice should be cleared from parking lots and roadways so that hazards, such as potholes, are not concealed.
  • Wet or slippery surfaces: A floor or stairwell can become particularly dangerous when the surface is wet.
  • Missing or broken railings: Stairwells become dangerous when there are no handrails to grab onto in the event of a slip and fall accident.
  • Unsafe structural conditions: Property owners need to take steps to ensure that structural conditions on the premises are free from damage. For example, stairs should be well-maintained, scaffolding should be secured, and elevators and escalators should be inspected.

NJ Trip and Fall Accidents Result in Serious Personal Injuries

When a property owner puts profits ahead of safety, visitors to the property are often the ones who suffer. Some of the most serious negative consequences of a slip & fall accident include:

  • Broken bones
  • Muscle strains
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Permanent disability
  • Wrongful death

Depending on the severity of your slip and fall injuries, you may need Compensation to cover medical bills, future medical care and lost wages if your injuries are so serious that you are unable to work for an extended period of time. Beyond that, you may be entitled to financial Compensation for your physical pain and suffering in the immediate aftermath of the slip & fall accident and during your recovery and rehabilitation process.
