Common Causes Of Slip And Fall Accidents

Unfortunately, city streets and commercial centers in Essex County can lead to slip and fall or trip and fall accidents.

These types of accidents could be the result of:

  • Ice and snow
  • Uneven or deteriorated sidewalks and walkways
  • Debris left on walkways or on floors in commercial establishments
  • Spillage in customer aisles in stores
  • Torn and dangerous carpeting
  • Improper lighting or visibility

The Essex Green Shopping Center is one of many places where a slip and fall accident could occur

Under the law, a slip and fall or a trip and fall accident is based on a claim that the property owner was negligent in allowing some dangerous condition to exist that caused the slip or trip.

Whether or not you are entitled to compensation as a result of an Essex County slip and fall accident depends on the unique circumstances of each case.  Some of the factors that will need to be considered are what kind of condition caused you to slip or trip; how long that condition had existed; and whether or not the owner of the property where you fell knew or should have known of the dangerous condition prior to your fall.  What actions you could have taken to possibly avoid the accident also comes into play.
