Thousands are injured in slip-and-fall accidents every year

Public establishments in New Jersey are required to be safe for all those who lawfully visit. For property and business owners, this means fixing property that has fallen under disrepair, cleaning walkways and promptly removing foreign objects from floors. Unfortunately, cleaning or routine maintenance is sometimes neglected, resulting in hazardous conditions capable of injuring visitors and customers. Thousands of people are injured in slip-and-fall accidents every year across the country.

A lawsuit was recently filed in another state after a woman apparently fell in a convenience store and suffered injuries. According to the lawsuit, the woman was shopping in the store and was near an area where customers could get heated cheese dip. Allegedly, the woman stepped in melted cheese that had spilled on floor and this caused her to slip and fall.

The woman claims to have suffered bodily injuries as well as mental anguish as the result of her fall. She seeks to hold the defendant responsible over claims that the defendant had knowledge of the spill but failed to clean the floor and also failed to provide warning to customers. The plaintiff seeks damages in excess of $50,000.

Customers should not have to fear for their safety while shopping. However, something as minor as a wet floor is enough to cause an individual to fall and suffer severe injuries. In New Jersey, when slip-and-fall accidents occur due to negligence, victims can take action by filing a lawsuit in civil court. A successfully litigated claim can provide victims much-needed compensation to help with medical expenses and other monetary losses.
