Camden County Slip and Fall Accident Attorney
When a person slips or trips and falls at a business, a parking lot or other types of commercial property and sustains a personal injury, they may be left with significant medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
As in other personal injury claims, negligence must be proven to establish liability, but can sometimes be more complicated and difficult to establish in slip or trip and fall cases. The person who suffered the injury must prove that the commercial property owner permitted some dangerous condition to exist that caused him or her to slip or trip and sustain injury.
Commercial property owners, will generally attempt to disprove liability by one of two ways: either by claiming that they were not negligent because, through the exercise of due diligence, a property owner acting with reasonable care would not have been aware of the dangerous condition; or the property owner might claim that the injured person was the negligent party and should have exercised due diligence to take the necessary steps to avoid slipping or tripping and falling on a dangerous surface.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a slip or trip and fall victim in South Jersey or metropolitan Philadelphia, you should not be deterred by the defenses that the owner of the commercial property where you were injured are likely to employ; nor should you be intimidated by the aggressive challenge that the insurance carrier for the property owner will likely mount against you. Instead, you should focus on getting well and contact the experienced legal team at Petrillo and Goldberg, who will fight for your rights and secure the compensation for your injuries that you deserve.
