When Unsafe Property Causes Injuries
When you visit a publicly or privately-owned location of any kind, you are probably under the impression that your safety is a top priority. Unfortunately, due to the negligence of others, trip-and-fall accidents can occur anywhere.
The accidents may happen quickly, but the aftermath can sometimes be felt for the rest of a person’s life. At Bastarrika, Soto, Gonzalez & Somohano, L.L.P., we understand the impact a fall accident can have on someone’s mobility and livelihood.
When A Fall Could Have Been Prevented
It is very important that you retain an experienced attorney who can help you understand your rights. In many cases, you may be entitled to compensation that can help you afford costs associated with medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Trying to obtain this financial assistance on your own can be overwhelming. Our attorneys are highly experienced in helping individuals throughout New Jersey navigate these complex situations.
These injuries can result from:
– Wet floors
– Overstocked shelves
– Neglected sidewalks
– Broken or old staircases
– Poorly lit or improperly marked areas
The resulting injuries can affect your knees, hips, back, neck and more. Documentation is always a very important part of a premises liability case, so be sure to take photos, gather witness information, and file a report with the store or business and request a copy. If you were unable to do these things at the time of the accident, our lawyers are prepared to work to determine the circumstances of your case and help you in both a practical and tenacious manner.
