Slip and Fall Injuries

The first factor in a New Jersey slip and fall injury claim is whether or not the property owner had a duty to maintain safe premises. The law requires that owners of property maintain their premises in a reasonably safe manner for guests and visitors. Conditions on the property should not create a hazard or danger that could result in an injury to someone.

Common causes of slip and fall incidents that could be the result of this breach of duty to maintain safe premises include:

Uneven or damaged flooring
Spills, drinks, and other items on the floor making the floor slippery
Inadequate or faulty lighting
Broken, missing, or inadequate handrails
Exposed electric or wiring cords
Tiles, damaged carpet, or damaged wood floors
Damaged stairs or steps
Ice or snow on pavement, decks, and stairs
