Morris, NJ Trip and Fall Injury Lawyers Protect Your Future
Sometimes, a slip and fall causes little more than a bruise or a scratch. But for thousands of Americans, a slip on a spill that was not cleaned up or a trip on a broken stair that was not repaired can mean another trip — to the hospital.
Property owners and their agents — managers, landlords and maintenance companies — are responsible for keeping their buildings and grounds safe for tenants, customers and visitors. When they fail to do so and you are injured as a result of a slip, trip, and/or fall, they are also responsible for compensating you for your injuries.
