Under New Jersey slip and fall laws, property owners are generally responsible for keeping their premises free of hazards that might injure lawful visitors to the property. This includes cleaning up spills or repairing broken floors that can cause a slip and fall. However, a property or business owner will only be held liable if they were negligent in their ownership and maintenance of their premises.
Most businesses have a legal obligation to conduct regular inspections of their property for hazards that may cause a customer or client to suffer a slip and fall. For example, supermarkets must conduct regular spill checks in the aisles. Commercial property and business owners must also provide reasonable warnings of hazardous conditions to visitors or fix the condition within a reasonable time.
Other types of property owners, such as homeowners, are not required to make inspections of their property for slip and fall hazards but must act to either warn visitors to their property of known hazards or undertake efforts to fix or remedy the condition. New Jersey law also places restrictions on the liability of homeowners for slip and fall accidents caused by snow and ice on their property.
A property or business owner may try to avoid liability for a slip and fall accident by arguing that the accident victim bears fault for their fall, such as if the hazard that caused the fall was visible and obvious or if the slip and fall victim chose to walk across a slipping hazard and failed to exercise reasonable care. An aggressive Paterson slip and fall accident lawyer can help you push back against claims that you were somehow responsible for your accident.

Also make sure to photograph or preserve the clothing and footwear you were wearing at the time of your fall. Finally, you should also get examined by a doctor as soon as possible after your fall to identify the injuries you may have suffered.
