Where does liability for a trip and fall accident come from?

A trip and fall can happen anywhere, at any time. Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property safe, and provide adequate warnings about potential hazards. This duty is particularly enforceable upon people who own properties open to the public. The most common causes of trip and fall accidents include:

  • Sidewalks
  • Objects in walkways
  • Dangerous stairs
  • Uneven carpets
  • Poor lighting
  • Loose tiles
  • Unbalanced flooring
  • Potholes
  • Dangerous cracks
  • Loose cords
  • Improperly maintained walkways

Our experienced New Jersey trip and fall accident attorneys are here to help you recover compensation for your injuries regardless of what condition you were in before the accident.
