ESSEX COUNTY, NJ SLIP AND FALL INJURIES
Premises liability cases usually involve “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” accidents. Slip and fall accident cases are complex and it is important that anyone injured in this manner consult a New Jersey slip and fall lawyer. The first question when examining a New Jersey slip and fall lawyer usually asks about is the location of the accident. The reason why this is important is because it is much easier to prove a negligence against a commercial landowner than it is to prove against a residential landowner in New Jersey. Anyone examining a court docket could immediately determine that many cases are against commercial entities such as:
• Big-box stores
• Home improvement stores
• Grocery stores
• Apartment complexes
• Business complexes
New Jersey premises liability law requires big-box stores, home improvement stores, grocery stores, apartment complexes, business complexes and other commercial landowners to repair or to prevent conditions that could result in someone being hurt. This includes the sidewalks surrounding the property. Failure to do so may result in the commercial landowner being held liable for injuries.
In order to prove that a commercial entity is negligent, an injured victim generally must prove that there was a dangerous or hazardous condition on the premises and that the commercial landowner had knowledge of it. This is typically done with the help of an expert. Experts are permitted to give opinions when testifying in court.
Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
• Snow and ice accidents
• Re-freezing incidents
• Debris such as wet leaves and garbage
• Indoor paint on an outdoor surface
• Non-slip resistant flooring
• No railing
• Improper lighting 000

I received a ticket for an illegal left. I left Court with no points on my license and a small fine thanks to Dan Sloan. Dan kept me informed the entire time and supported me even with this minor incident. I have recommended Dan to friends and family who have also had successful outcomes with Dan by their side.
I received a moving violation, and was very nervous to go to court and face the penalties. Dan assured me not worry- his confidence and well-rounded knowledge of the law are why I walked out of the court very happy. I highly recommend Dan Sloan and will only call him for any other issue I should face.
