Results-Oriented Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers Fight for Clients’ Right to Compensation in Monmouth County and Middlesex County, New Jersey
Recovering from injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident can be a slow and painful process—during which medical bills can pile up and you may not even be able to work. The frustrations of recovery are often compounded by the additional frustration of knowing that the owner of the property where you were injured could have taken steps to prevent the slip and fall accident entirely. Unfortunately, the negligence and carelessness of individuals who own shopping centers, office buildings, parks, and even parking lots cause unnecessary slip and fall accidents every single day.

The laws governing liability for slip and fall accident are detailed and can present complexities that vary based upon the facts of your case. Our team of experienced slip and fall accident lawyers are here to help you get your life back on track financially after your accident.
Establishing Your Right to Compensation Following a Slip and Fall Accident
Injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents can have consequences that extend beyond the initial medical treatment required to stabilize your condition—and those physical consequences can generate additional expenses that you might not be able to quickly anticipate when evaluating an insurance adjuster’s settlement offer. The value of your post-slip-and-fall compensation package should be comprehensive, and should account for:
- Hospital and emergency room costs,
- Ongoing medical treatment, such as rehabilitative care,
- The wages or salary that you lost during the recovery process,
- Any reduction in your future salary that was caused by ongoing medical issues stemming from the slip and fall accident,
- All of the pain and suffering that you endured during your recovery.
Our experienced team of slip and fall accident lawyers handle all types of slip and fall accidents, including those that have taken place because of:
- A property owner’s negligent failure to remove snow or ice from his or her property,
- Spills or slippery floors in a retail store that have not been properly cleaned, especially when the property owner has failed to install warning signs,
- Uneven surfaces, including uneven pavement, mats or rugs that are not properly secured, or uneven floor or sidewalk conditions,
- Poorly lit conditions, because insufficient lighting can lead to slip and fall accidents when you are unable to see potential obstacles in your path,
- Holes in parking lots or outdoor areas where the owner has failed to properly mark the area to warn of potential hazards.

FAQ: How long do I have to pursue a claim for compensation based on a slip and fall accident in New Jersey?
In New Jersey, you usually only have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit based on a slip and fall accident. Special circumstances can extend this “statute of limitations” in certain situations, including in cases where the injured party was a minor. An experienced slip and fall accident lawyer can explain in detail how the New Jersey statute of limitations may apply in your case.
FAQ: What if my slip and fall accident occurred while I was at work?
If you sustained injuries in a slip and fall accident at work, you are able to file a workers’ compensation claim to recover a portion of your expenses. Under the workers’ compensation laws, you are not entitled to sue your employer for any negligence that may have caused the accident. Despite this, in certain cases, a third party who is not your employer may actually be responsible for the accident. Our lawyers can help evaluate your case to see whether a claim for compensation against a third party may be viable, and we can also help you with your workers’ compensation claim.
