Essex County Slip and Fall Attorney
West Orange Slip & Fall Lawyer
New Jersey Premises Liability Attorney
Property owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment, free from obvious hazards. At the Law Offices of Gary J. Natale, P.C. in West Orange, New Jersey, we will help hold them accountable when they fail in that responsibility.
Hazards on a Property
Property owners have a duty to maintain reasonably safe conditions on their property. They are responsible for inspecting and maintaining buildings and the surrounding area. Faulty doors that close abruptly have injured clients. A missing railing can cause a serious and highly injurious fall. Icy parking lots and cracked sidewalks can be hazardous. Slippery steps and floors due to spills have resulted in catastrophic injuries. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident in a supermarket or other store, the Law Offices of Gary J. Natale, P.C. can help you recover compensation for those injuries.
Establishing Your Slip and Fall Case
Our firm takes a hands-on approach to investigating slip and fall cases. We may enlist the help of experts to study the area where the mishap occurred. We can bring in professional engineers to investigate the scene of an accident and determine if the accident resulted from a broken door or defective stairs. We will interview witnesses and employees to see how long the hazard existed.
Misconceptions Regarding Slip and Fall Accidents
A misconception exists about slip and fall accidents. Many, including the victims themselves, see them as a result of clumsiness and not negligence. They assume their injuries are minor. However, we have handled slip and fall cases dealing with severe ankle fractures and other broken bones. Do not hesitate to contact a lawyer because of embarrassment or others minimizing the impact of the injury. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering.
