Falls and Trips Can Cause Serious Injuries

Many people who have been injured after a fall in a store, home or other property may recognize that the negligence of the property owner led to such an accident. They may not recognize, however, that it may be possible to file a personal injury lawsuit and what specific laws apply. Premises liability is a complex area of the law, and it takes an experienced lawyer to properly assess what happened and answer all of your important questions.

At Hendrickson & Edelstein, Attorneys at Law — located in Lakewood and Barnegat, New Jersey — our firm has successfully handled cases arising from falls and accidents in stores, apartment complexes, supermarkets, homes and other property caused by negligence. We have a thorough understanding of premises liability, and we will advise honestly whether filing a personal injury claim against a property owner is in your best interest.

Did a Dangerous Condition Cause Your Slip-and-Fall Injury?

Common causes of falls and other accidents on premises include, but are not limited to:

  • Trips on floor mats, rugs or floorboards
  • Poor lighting
  • Slippery floors, often due to unattended spills
  • Defective stairways
  • Building code violations
  • Debris in aisles or falling from shelves
  • Cracked or broken sidewalks
  • Snow and ice
  • Lax security

Our lawyers will investigate how the defective conditions came to pass, whether they were long-standing and what actions, if any, were made by those responsible. While property owners cannot be expected to foresee every potential accident, they can take reasonable steps to make their properties as safe as possible.
