Common Causes of Slip, Fall and Other Premises-Related Injuries
Snowy sidewalks. Slippery floors. Unsecured construction sites. What do these have in common? They are all common conditions that can lead adults and children to suffer serious injuries on other individuals’ and business owners’ property. Under New Jersey law, property owners owe a legal duty to rectify unsafe conditions within a reasonable amount of time, and they must also warn visitors of any known dangers on their premises.
When they fail to do so – and when someone suffers an injury as a result – they can be held liable for the consequences of their inaction. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey Hasson, P.C., we have helped numerous victims secure fair compensation for injuries from slips, falls, and other premises-related accidents. Some of the most common grounds for injury victims to file claims for compensation include things like:
- Crumbling or broken steps
- Damaged or improperly-designed sidewalks and pavement
- Dangerous elevators and escalators
- Fallen or falling merchandise
- Icy and snowy steps and sidewalks
- Inadequate security
- Missing or defective guardrails
- Spills in grocery stores
- Uneven pavement
- Waxed floors
Keep in mind: These are just examples. If you have suffered any injury resulting from any dangerous or unsafe condition on anyone else’s property, you may have a claim for financial compensation.
Seeking Compensation for Slip and Fall Injuries in New Jersey
Slip and fall accidents can result in a number of different types of serious injuries. An unexpected fall can be a traumatic event, leaving the victim with little time to react or brace for impact. Of course, bracing for impact – which is a completely natural reaction – can sometimes lead to its own injuries as well.
Victims of premises-related accidents often suffer serious injuries such as:
- Brain and head injuries
- Broken bones
- Severe contusions
- Spinal cord injuries
- Torn muscles, ligaments, and tendons
As an accident victim, it is critical that you seek prompt medical attention for your injuries. This is important not only for your health, but also for helping make sure that you can secure a maximum financial recovery. Contact us to learn more.

Did You Get Hurt in a Fall at Work?
Construction workers and other employees who fall at work can often seek medical and disability benefits through workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, employers rarely make securing workers’ compensation benefits after a fall as easy as it should be. This is true even though the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has identified falls as the leading cause of death on its list of the “Fatal Four” causes of construction site accidents.
Regardless of your occupation, if you were injured in a fall at work, our attorneys can help make sure you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. Importantly, since workers’ compensation benefits are limited, whenever possible we also seek to file premises liability claims against responsible third parties. By taking this approach, we can help ensure that our clients receive full compensation for their injuries and losses.
