New Jersey Lawyers Representing People Injured in Slip, Trip and Falls Accidents
Property owners must keep their properties safe to prevent people from falling and becoming injured — or worse. Under New Jersey’s premises liability law, if someone is injured because of an unsafe property condition, the injured person has a legal right to seek financial compensation for his or her medical expenses, lost wages or income, pain and suffering, and more.
The personal injury attorneys of Lombardi and Lombardi, P.A., are experienced in representing people who were injured in falls. If you were seriously injured in a fall on someone else’s property, please contact us to discuss your case.
We Take Falls Seriously
Falls are not just a momentary embarrassment. They can lead to serious injury or fatality. One out of five falls causes a major injury such as broken bones or a head injury. More than 2.8 million people are treated in emergency departments annually, due to falls.
