Slip and Falls Attorneys in Morristown, New Jersey
If you fall and injure yourself at the grocery store, if you trip in the parking lot of a mall, or if you slip on a spill at a restaurant, you may have a premises liability lawsuit against the owners of the property. Slip and fall injuries can be more serious than people think. OSHA guidelines are very strict when it comes to safety requirements in commercial establishments and job sites, so it is possible your case may be a strong one.
In premises liability cases, we must prove that you suffered serious injury and that the cause of the accident was a dangerous or hazardous condition. But we must further prove that the owner of the property knew or should have known of the dangerous condition and failed to act upon it in a reasonable manner or within a reasonable time frame. Our personal injury attorneys have handled countless premises liability cases successfully.
