Everyone has tripped and fallen at some point in their lives. You may have fallen down your own front steps because you underestimated the step’s location while carrying things or tripped over them. Perhaps you slipped on your slippery deck because you moved too quickly. Accidents do occur. Life will always include it.

At the Epstein Law Firm, P.A., each of our renowned Wanaque slip and fall lawyers is committed to fighting for the rights of those hurt in accidents in Passaic County and all throughout New Jersey.

Understanding The Issue Of Negligence In A Wanaque Slip And Fall Accident Claim

All personal injury claims, including those resulting from slip and fall accidents, are based on the question of fault. An accident is just an accident and no one can be held responsible if no one person engaged in negligent activity that either contributed to or caused the accident. Accident victims are only protected by personal injury law where carelessness was a factor in the accident.

So what constitutes carelessness in a claim for a slip and fall accident? A slip-and-fall accident can happen for a variety of reasons, but some actions on the part of the property owner may be deemed irresponsible. In many slip-and-fall incidents, failure to act is actually what might be considered irresponsible in and of itself.

For instance, it may be considered negligent behavior if a property owner neglects to warn visitors about any harmful conditions on the premises. A property owner may be deemed negligent if a dangerous location is not cordoned off. Owners of real estate are obligated to keep the property in good condition by making repairs and conducting safety checks; if they fail to do so and someone is injured as a result, their actions may be considered negligent.

In a trip-and-fall incident, negligence is rarely obvious. In most circumstances, the property owner will contend that the person who slips and falls is partially to blame for their mishap, if not entirely. It is in your best interests to speak with one of our Wanaque personal injury lawyers who has relevant experience with your type of accident claim in order to build the strongest case of negligence in your slip and fall accident claim.

What is the typical settlement for a slip-and-fall case?

You can seek to be compensated for your injuries and other damages when you submit a personal injury claim for a slip and fall accident that was brought on by someone else’s carelessness. Legally speaking, these losses are referred to as “damages,” and they cover a wide variety of costs and other harms, including but not limited to any of the following:

– Medical care bills

– The cost of projected future medical care related to accident-related injuries.

– Hospital stay bills

– Medical facility fees

– The price of pharmaceutical drugs

– The price of medical procedures

– The price of rehabilitation

– Income lost as a result of time away from work

– Anguish and anguish on the inside

– Loss of enjoyment in life

– A loss of friendship

– A reduction in earned vacation time

– Loss of accrued vacation time

It is not the goal of compensatory damages in a personal injury case to exact revenge on the person or entity that caused your slip and fall accident. The goal of compensatory damages is to put the injured party back in the condition they were in before the slip and fall incident.
