New Jersey Slip and Fall Lawyers
Injuries Caused by Falls on Ice or Snow
In New Jersey in the winter, the accumulation of ice and snow can present serious risk of injury. Owners of residential and commercial property have a duty to take reasonable steps to minimize that risk to persons who are legally on their property. If you have been injured slipping or tripping on ice or snow on someone else’s sidewalk, steps or driveway, the office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help you determine whether you have a valid claim for damages and can help you take the right steps to pursue full and fair compensation for your injuries.
At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have protected the rights of injured people throughout central New Jersey for more than four decades. We understand that every case is unique and will take the time to learn the details of your situation so that we can tailor our counsel to get the outcome you want. We don’t take the same approach with every client. Instead, we carefully analyze the specific facts and evidence of your case, always looking to find ways to win it. We frequently hire experts with specific experience in snow removal.
We know that a personal injury can take a serious financial and emotional toll on you. We work hard to be there when you need to talk with us, and will always respond to your calls and e-mails in a timely manner, keeping you fully apprised of any developments in your case, as well as of your options and likelihood of success. Because of our reputation for hard work and thorough preparation, many of our new cases come to us as referrals, either from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients.
Premises Liability Lawyers — Injuries Suffered in Falls on Ice or Snow
No one can control the weather, but owners of residential or commercial property have a duty to reasonably prepare for and respond to weather conditions, such as ice or snow, that can pose a risk of injury to visitors. Accordingly, a property owner, landlord or merchant has an obligation to remove snow or treat icy conditions within a reasonable period of time so as to avoid risk of slips and falls. In addition, if the owner of property has reason to know that a particular area is more inclined to accumulate snow or ice, steps must be taken to prevent potential injuries.
We will handle all matters related to your claim for injuries, gathering and evaluating all evidence and traveling to the scene of the accident if necessary. We will help you pursue damages for all your losses, including lost wages and income, medical expenses, and physical pain and suffering.
