Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Slip and Fall Accidents in Maplewood, New Jersey

Whom may I accuse of being at fault for my trip and fall incident?

In general, a property owner is responsible for the state of the property and is liable for any injuries caused to guests by any hazardous or dangerous conditions on the property. Other parties, however, can be held accountable for a slip-and-fall incident. Examples include a renter of the property whose lease agreement holds them accountable for whatever condition led to the slip and fall incident or a hired maintenance business that was in charge of fixing the issue.

How soon after my slip and fall accident must I file a lawsuit?

A victim of a slip and fall accident has a finite amount of time to bring a lawsuit seeking damages for their injuries and losses. The statute of limitations is the legal term for this time frame; in New Jersey, it is two years from the accident’s date for slip and fall accidents. The court may permanently dismiss your case if it is not filed before the limitations time has passed.


I highly recommend them to anyone who has litigation needs. In addition to being experts in the field, they go the extra mile and have always delivered results for the clients I have recommended. They are a first-class firm that you should be working with if the situation calls for it.
