Slip and Fall

by Staff Blogger | July 21st, 2020

At Judd Shaw Injury Law, our attorneys have the experience and resources to fight for people injured in slips, trips, and falls throughout New Jersey and New York. Slip and fall injuries, otherwise known as trip and fall injuries, are premises liability claims.

This is a type of personal injury claim that results from a person slipping and suffering an injury on someone else’s property. When a person gets injured by falling, they may be entitled to monetary compensation for the injury from the owner or person in possession of the premises where the injury occurred.

A defendant can become liable for slip and fall injuries based upon ownership or control of the premises where the injury occurred. Premises liability is a type of injury law that holds property owners, or the parties who maintain a property, accountable for injuries suffered by guests, customers, and other visitors due to dangerous conditions.

When you contact us after a slip and fall injury, our team will immediately review the details of your injury and how it happened. If we determine that you may have rights to compensation, we’ll then start collecting physical, medical, and eyewitness evidence that can strengthen your claim—before it disappears.
