Slip & Fall

Burlington County Slip & Fall Attorney

Falls are consistently the leading cause of injury producing accidents. They account for more than 1 million injuries each year in the United States and even though when you first hear of them they may not sound that serious, they can lead to devastating consequences. Whether it was a spill that was not cleaned up, an icy surface, or a poorly-maintained stairwell, a fall can cause serious injury and even death. Head injuries, brain damage, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and more could lead to a lifetime of complications and disabilities.

Need Help With a Slip & Fall Case?

There are generally four different types of personal injury slip and fall accidents:

Whatever your situation, you could be entitled to compensation if you were injured on someone else’s property. When walking in a public place, we have the right to be advised of any hazards we are likely to encounter. If the hazard has been knowingly or carelessly disguised or ignored then the property owner may be at fault.

  • Slip and Fall: The individual may lose traction, slip on the walking surface and fall.
  • Stump and Fall: The individual may stumble over an obstruction on the walkway or surface and fall.
  • Step and Fall: The individual may lose his/her balance and fall due to a hole in the walkway or surface, or some type of unexpected defect.
  • Trip and Fall: An individual may trip over a foreign object and fall.

Regardless of the type of slip and fall accident if the property owner did not exercise reasonable care, acted negligently or had constructive notice, meaning that even if the owner was not actually aware of the hazard, he/she SHOULD have had knowledge of the unsafe condition that caused the accident, then they could be held liable for the accident and injury.
