SLIP & FALL ACCIDENT LAWYER NEAR ATLANTIC CITY

When a person slips and falls they are often embarrassed and the last thing they want to think about is filing a lawsuit. Even so, it is important to understand that a few simple procedural moves could help you preserve your right to compensation should you decide to pursue a claim somewhere down the line.

“Slip and Fall” is a term used for a personal injury case in which a person slips or trips and is injured on someone else’s property. These cases generally fall under the broader category of cases known as “Premises Liability” claims. The premises liability doctrine is intended to keep you safe by imposing important duties on property owners, including: offices, sports arenas, gyms, shopping malls, grocery stores, movie theaters, playgrounds, community pools, public parks and apartment buildings. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may have a valid cause of action against a business, government or residential property owner whether you are a social guest attending a party, a customer making a transaction, a vendor conducting business or even an uninvited person trespassing on the property.

Different requirements apply depending on whether the property is:

  • COMMERCIAL PROPERTY
  • RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY
  • PUBLIC PROPERTY

For example, while a two-year Statute of Limitations generally applies to slip and fall accidents, there is also a requirement that written notice of a claim be given within 90 days to any public entity who may be sued. While there is no similar requirement as to private entities, it is often essential to document the condition of the property as it existed at the time of the accident and obtain information as to when the owner knew or should have known about the condition that caused the accident.

At HYBERG, WHITE & MANN, we aggressively pursue the maximum available compensation from the person or entity whose failure to maintain their property caused you harm. Contact our personal injury lawyers today: (609) 407-1000.
