Signs indicating hazards can prevent slip trip and fall injuriesDuring a nice night out in town or while walking through a local park, you slipped or tripped, fell, and got hurt.  Accidents happen, but was your injury really the result of an accident, or was it due to someone else’s carelessness or disregard for your safety? Thousands of people face this question every year as they suffer injuries related to slips, trips, and falls.  To answer this question, however, you may need the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer.

A slip, trip, or fall can happen anywhere and at any time to residents of towns throughout Somerset County, such as Basking Ridge, Bernardsville, Far Hills, and Watchung.  Wet floors, poor lighting, unsafe construction areas, and uneven walkways throughout our area may seem like minor nuisances, but they can cause serious slip and fall injuries. If you are injured by such an unsafe condition, and the owner of the premises was aware of the danger, then you may be able to recover damages from the property owner.  Depending on the facts of the case, however, premises liability may be a difficult legal question that should be addressed by an experienced attorney.

In many slip and fall cases, the victim sustains only bumps, bruises, or small cuts. In more serious cases, however, a victim may suffer life-changing injuries that result in a permanent disability or medical condition. Whether your injuries are minor or severe, you may have the right to recover damages, and an experienced personal injury lawyer can help.  Bear in mind that some injuries that seem minor at first may develop into more serious conditions with lifelong effects.  To ensure that you are able to recover for the full extent of your injury, you should treat any slip, trip, and fall incident seriously and obtain professional legal advice.

The experienced attorneys at the Mark Law Firm have handled a wide array of personal injury cases.  Our lawyers know the law and can help you or a loved one evaluate the seriousness of your slip, trip, or fall case.  If your injuries were the result of someone else’s carelessness, a Newark personal injury lawyer at The Mark Law Firm will work with you to take the appropriate legal action and seek recovery to make you whole again.
