If you've been injured on someone else's property you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Be sure to get the medical treatment you need and keep records of all bills endured. We also recommend you fill out an accident report and take photos of the accident site- especially if you can show negligence was involved on the property owner's part.
Depending on your situation you'll have two options in New Jersey: filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. To win a slip and fall case showing the owner's negligence was involved in the unsafe environment that caused your injuries will be very important. A common type of slip and fall case is a premises liability case- this requires negligent property owners and occupiers to pay for the injuries and losses incurred while on their property.
-Was there an unsafe situation on the property?
-Did the property owner cause the condition?
-Was the property owner aware of the situation and allowed it to continue?
-Did they neglect to post warning signs?
