Slip and fall accidents can happen at any time, in any place, without warning. These accidents can also leave victims with injuries both minor and serious & life-threatening. When a person suffers a slip and fall accident through no fault of their own, where the accident occurs on someone else’s property and is caused by a dangerous or hazardous condition that was left on the property due to the negligence of the owner, the injured victim may be entitled to recover compensation from the owner. Although an injured victim’s right to compensation may seem clear, the reality is that slip and fall accident claims can be very complicated due to the factual evidence involved and the legal defenses that may be raised by the property or business owner.

Plainfield is a city located in Union County, New Jersey. Known as “The Queen City”, Plainfield was originally founded as Plainfield Township in 1847 from portions of Westfield Township. Plainfield was settled by Quakers in 1684. During the Revolutionary War, Plainfield was the location of George Washington’s headquarters in 1777 during the Battle of Short Hills. Plainfield was later incorporated as a city in 1869 from portions of Plainfield Township; the city and township co-existed until 1878 when Plainfield Township was absorbed into Plainfield city. Plainfield is believed to have gotten its nickname due to its reputation in the 19th century as having a climate beneficial for respiratory ailments; city officials promoted Plainfield as the “Colorado of the East”, and because Denver, Colorado was known as the “Queen City of the Plains”, so Plainfield became known as the Queen City.
Potentially. Generally speaking, an injured party who is partly at fault for his or her accident can still recover compensation, with his or her total damages reduced by his or her share of fault (for example, if an injured party has $100,000 in damages and is found to be 20 percent at fault for his or her accident, his or her compensation will be reduced by $20,000). New Jersey is a “modified” comparative fault state. This means that a plaintiff can still recover a reduced amount of damages if he or she is partially at fault for his or her accident, but the plaintiff will be barred from any recovery if he or she has a majority share of fault for his or her accident. So long as you do not bear a majority of the fault for your slip and fall accident, you will be able to recover some sort of compensation for your injuries and damages.
If you suffer injuries in a slip and fall accident at your place of work or on the job, you will generally be entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits from your employer, which can provide benefits such as compensation for medical treatment, partial wage replacement, or disability benefits. Although workers’ compensation is your sole remedy against your employer for injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident on the job or at your place of work, if a third party bears some fault for your slip and fall accident (for example, if you are a repairman who suffers a slip and fall accident on a client’s property), you may be able to assert a claim for compensation against the responsible third party (although you may then be required to reimburse your employer for any workers’ compensation benefits paid on your behalf).
