Where do Slip, trip, and Fall Accidents Occur?

Commonly, slip, trip, and fall injury claims arise from accidents occurring on a commercial premises, such as hotels, casinos, outlet stores, supermarkets, parking lots, and shopping malls. In some cases, they can also occur on public property, such as a town or state park, or on residential property; however, in these cases, the property owner may have immunity under New Jersey law.

Wet floors, weak stair rails, bad lighting, poor security, slippery stairs, unmarked hazards such as a freshly mopped floor, and broken pavement, are conditions that could have been repaired. When they are not, the property owner is liable for any injuries that occur because of his or her negligence.
