The attorneys at WeCanHelp.law are proud to announce a $175,000.00 settlement on behalf of a client who suffered an ankle injury after slipping and falling in an icy parking lot.  The accident occurred in Asbury Park.  In New Jersey, in order to establish that a landowner or storeowner is liable for injuries that result from a  slip and fall on ice, the plaintiff must establish that the landowner and or storeowner failed to take all necessary steps to salt and or de-ice their premises.  The plaintiff must further establish that the landowner or storeowner either knew or should have known about the icy conditions at the time of the fall.  The Monmouth County slip and fall on ice attorneys at our firm were able to establish that the landowner and the owner of the store both failed to properly salt and or de-ice the premises and should have known about the icy conditions where our client fell.   After conducting depositions on the parties and also obtaining relevant evidence which showed the actual icy conditions at the time of the fall, the attorneys at our firm retained an expert witness in the field of snow and ice removal to help establish the responsibility of both the landowner and the storeowner.  The attorneys at our firm also obtained a medical expert report from the doctor who treated the client at the hospital after the fall.
