New Jersey Slip and Fall on Ice Lawyers
A slip and fall on ice can occur at various locations and for various reasons. Under the law in the state of New Jersey, an individual or company who owns a commercial and or retail establishment has a duty to remove ice from their premises in order to ensure that an individual does not slip and fall on ice.
Though the accumulation of ice is a natural phenomenon, a commercial property owner not only has a duty to remove ice which has accumulated on their premises, the property owner also has a duty to inspect his or her premises to ensure that ice has not accumulated. If the property owner fails to remove and or salt known icy surfaces, or fails to inspect the premises to determine if ice exists, and a result of this failure someone is hurt, the property owner may be responsible.
The duties of removing ice and snow from a commercial establishment are mostly that of common sense but in some instances, an expert witness and or expert testimony may be necessary to explain the duties of ice and snow removal. If this is the case, our New Jersey Slip and Fall on Ice lawyers will hire the appropriate expert to ensure the case is properly prosecuted.
In some slip and fall on ice cases, the defense may attempt to accuse the plaintiff or the injured person of being contributorily negligent. Contributory negligence means that the plaintiff in some way contributed to, or caused the slip and fall on ice.
