Like all accidents, slip and fall accidents occur without warning, and can happen at any time, in any place. Contrary to popular belief, slip and fall accidents can result in more than minor injuries. Many slip and fall accident victims unfortunately suffer severe, life-altering injuries. When a slip and fall accident occurs on someone else’s property due to a dangerous or hazardous condition that the property owner or another party had a duty to remedy, the injured victim of a slip and fall accident may be entitled to seek compensation from the negligent owner for the damages arising from injuries. Although your right to compensation may seem plainly obvious when you are injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, in reality many slip and fall accident claims are incredibly complex because of the evidence required to establish how the accident occurred and the legal theories and defenses that are raised in the case.

Union City is a city located in Hudson County, New Jersey. As of the 2010 Census, Union City is the second-most densely populated city in the U.S., with a density of 51,810 persons per square mile. Union City was originally incorporated in 1925 by the merger of Union Hill and West Hoboken Township; the new city’s name reflected the union of these two municipalities. Union City was the site of the construction of the first lunch wagon, which sparked the wave of manufactured diners that New Jersey has since become famous for. Union City’s two nicknames, “Embroidery Capital of the United States” and “Little Havana on the Hudson”, reflect two waves of immigration that have come through Union City — the first, German and Duth speaking immigrants who came in the mid-19th century and established a European-style lacemaking industry in the city; the second, a wave of Cuban immigrants who came beginning in the 1940s and gave Union City the largest Cuban-American population outside of Miami, Florida.
If you had notice that there was a hazard in the area where your slip and fall accident occurred, such as a warning sign or “wet floor” sign, the property or business owner can point to the fact that you had adequate warning of the hazard and decided to cross the hazard anyway or failed to cross the area with due care, and therefore you were partially or entirely at fault for your accident.
A slip and fall accident attorney can help you with a claim for compensation by thoroughly investigating your accident, including ensuring that important evidence like surveillance video of your slip and fall are preserved. An attorney can negotiate with the property or business owner or its insurance or risk management company to try to get you a fair and full compensation for the injuries and damages you have suffered as a result of your accident. If necessary, an attorney can make the difference in whether you receive maximum compensation if you have to pursue your claim in court.
