Common Causes of Trip & Fall Injuries

Trips, slips, and falls are a common occurrence on many public and private properties. Unkempt and neglected businesses, retail spaces, and municipal areas pose serious threats to unsuspecting visitors. 

Common tripping hazards include: 

  • Loose or broken tiles or floorboards
  • Rugs or carpeting that has not been properly secured
  • Uneven sidewalks or pavement
  • Branches, tree roots, and other unattended to foliage
  • Uneven or improperly constructed stairs

Trip and falls can lead to a number of serious injuries, especially for the elderly. Arm and leg bone fractures, hip injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even neck and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can occur leading to the need for long-term rehabilitative care or permanent disabilities. 

Who Is Liable in a Trip & Fall Case?

It is the duty of the property owner to promptly fix any issues or provide adequate warning of known tripping hazards. Proving liability, or that there was a breach in the duty of care on the part of the property owner or manager, can be complicated, as there may be multiple parties and liability insurance policies involved. It also must be proven that intentional negligence or wrongdoing caused the injury, which is not always straightforward. Further, if your trip and fall happened while at work, you may need to seek workers’ compensation through your employer.  

Another complexity in these matters involves insurance companies, who often try to devalue or undervalue claims to protect their own bottom line. The insurer may thus try to prove that the property owner was not to blame or that the injured person caused their own injuries. Our Vineland trip and fall lawyers understand the tactics insurers use to devalue legitimate claims and can tailor our strategy to fight the insurance company’s attorneys. We know how to protect your rights when seeking the full and fair compensation you need to recover. Never accept an insurance company’s offer without discussing your case with Rosner Law Offices, P.C. first. 

The Statute of Limitations in a New Jersey Premises Liability Claim

As with other personal injury lawsuits, injured parties in the State of New Jersey have two years from the date of the incident to file a claim for compensation. After this period has passed, a plaintiff may be barred from bringing suit against a negligent property owner in order to recoup their financial losses incurred due to the injury.

It’s important that you do not delay in seeking medical attention and the help of a lawyer, even if you are not in serious pain. Injuries that go untreated will only get worse and become more expensive. If you wait to long to explore your legal options, you may be unable to file due to the statute of limitations running out.
