New Brunswick Slip-And-Fall Accident Lawyer
Middlesex County Premises Liability Attorney
If you or a loved one suffered a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall injury, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to learn more about your compensation options.
I am John D. Kovac, a New Brunswick attorney who represents people injured in slip-and-fall accidents. Many individuals do not realize that these types of cases require a great deal of preparation, skill and knowledge of the law. Much of the burden, unfortunately, falls upon the injured party to prove that the business or property owner was negligent and the accident could have been prevented. An experienced lawyer, however, will work diligently with medical experts and liability experts such as engineers to prove you are owed monetary compensation.
Slip-and-fall accidents fall within a legal category called premises liability. It is the notion that a property owner, manager or supervisor has a responsibility to keep the premises safe for visitors or invitees. The most common forms of these accidents involve:
- Faulty stairs
- Defective handrails
- Defective balconies and railings
- Uneven pavement
- Uneven sidewalks
- Wet or icy walkways
- Wet or slippery floors in places like supermarkets and department stores
- Unlit corners or stairs
- Damaged carpeting or other flooring
- Obstructions on the floor or in the aisles
Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents can occur anywhere, under any circumstances. If you or a loved one was hurt, do not hesitate to contact an experienced attorney to discuss your best course of action.
