Slip and fall accidents, by definition, happen out of the blue with little or no warning. Slip and falls can happen at any time and in any place. The injuries that arise from a slip and fall accident can range from minor cuts and bruises to serious, even life-threatening injuries like back or spinal injuries or traumatic brain injuries. When your slip and fall accident occurs on someone else’s property because a property or business owner failed to maintain the premises in a safe and hazard-free condition, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries and damages. Even though your right to compensation can seem straightforward, pursuing a slip and fall accident claim can be an incredibly complicated endeavor, due to the need to obtain evidence to demonstrate how the accident occurred and due to the legal theories and defenses that might be raised by the property or business owner.

West New York is a town located in Hudson County, New Jersey. West New York, one of the most densely populated municipalities in the country, lies across the Hudson River from New York City, sitting atop the New Jersey Palisades, a line of steep cliffs along the western bank of the Hudson. West New York was incorporated as a town in 1898, replacing Union Township. West New York underwent massive economic growth in the early 20th century, driven largely by textile industries. By the latter half of the 20th century, the industrial areas along the Hudson waterfront were redeveloped into residential and recreational uses. Many high-rise residential buildings were built throughout West New York, allowing the town to have one of the highest population densities in the country. West New York is also home to the longest commercial avenue in New Jersey, situated along Bergenline Avenue and hosting more than 300 retail stores and restaurants.
Potentially. If you had knowledge of a dangerous or hazardous condition and chose to traverse it, a property or business owner can argue that you assumed the risk of crossing the hazard and/or that you failed to cross the hazard with due care and therefore are partially or entirely at fault for your slip and fall accident. However, if you had no other available avenue but to cross the hazard, the property or business owner may still bear responsibility for your slip and fall accident.
If you suffered a slip and fall accident, it is advisable that you follow up with your medical provider as soon as possible after the accident, even if you have no visible injuries or pain. It is possible that injuries take days or even weeks to begin manifesting symptoms. However, quickly identifying your injuries will allow you to more effectively demonstrate that your injuries were caused by your accident and not some other cause, and also help you to calculate your damages that you should be compensated for.
