Slip and fall accidents happen for many reasons. A person can slip on snow and ice on a walkway, fall down broken staircases, or trip over potholes or broken pavement. Whenever you or a loved one are on someone else’s property and suffer a slip and fall accident, the property owner’s failure to maintain the property in a safe condition may mean that they are legally responsible to you for the injuries and damages that may result from your slip and fall accident. A property owner owes every visitor to their property a duty to keep the property in a safe condition, remedying every dangerous or hazardous condition that the owner is or should be aware of, or providing adequate warnings if the property owner is still in the midst of fixing the hazard.
Unfortunately, lots of slip and fall accidents in Edison and throughout New Jersey could have been prevented if the property owner exercised the due care expected of them. Many people may not even realize that a property owner has a legal duty to maintain the property in a safe condition, or that in many circumstances this duty extends to surrounding areas, such as parking lots or garages, driveway, and even abutting sidewalks. For more than 60 years, the Edison slip and fall accident attorneys of Team Law have fought to recover compensation from negligent property owners when dangerous and hazardous conditions on their properties injure innocent victims in slip and fall accidents.

Edison is located in Middlesex County, New Jersey. A part of the New York City metropolitan area, Edison is located at the core of New Jersey’s Raritan Valley region. Originally founded as Raritan Township in 1870 from parts of Piscataway Township and Woodbridge Township, Edison formally changed to its present-day name in 1954 following a referendum to honor inventor Thomas Edison, who famously established his main laboratory in the Menlo Park section of the township, leading to one of Thomas Edison’s monikers, “The Wizard of Menlo Park”. Today, Edison is home to multiple corporate presences, including the headquarters of video game developer Majesco Entertainment, along with regional hubs for FedEx and UPS and the largest private convention center, the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center.
The compensation you may be entitled to in a slip and fall case depends on the damages you have suffered. If you were injured in your fall, you may be entitled to compensation for the costs of treating your injuries. If your injuries keep you out of work, you may also be entitled to lost wages or lost earning capacity. Finally, you may also be entitled to be compensated for the pain and suffering or the lost quality of life that may be caused by serious injuries you suffer in a slip and fall accident.
It is understandable that you may not want to bring a legal claim against a friend or a family member. However, it is important to remember that if your friend or family member has homeowners’ insurance for their property, any damages that you are compensated for will be paid out by the insurance company, not your friend or family member. Your friend or family member has homeowners’ insurance for this very reason — to protect themselves and their assets if someone is injured on their property.
