Cherry Hill Slip and Fall Lawyers

Helping South Jersey clients who are injured by a fall

Slip and fall accidents are common causes of fractures, back injuries, head trauma, and spinal cord damage. These accidents are so common that it’s inexcusable for a property owner not to take the necessary precautions to protect the people who use their property. When they fail in this duty, our Cherry Hill slip and fall lawyers are ready to help.

At Ferrara & Gable, we have the experience and resources to show why you fell, and why your fall was preventable. We’ve obtained strong recoveries for our personal injury clients including obtaining a $485,00 jury verdict in Mercer Count for a man who fell at the Princeton Medical Center when he stepped out of his trash removal truck and fell on the ice and snow. Contact us so we can help you, too.

What causes slip and fall accidents in Cherry Hill?

  • Floors that are slippery or wet due to spilled liquids, rain that is tracked into a store, or other causes
  • Debris or merchandise on the floor
  • Floors that are uneven or in a state of disrepair
  • Loose stair railings
  • Missing or uneven steps
  • Torn carpets
  • Poor lighting
  • Sidewalks or parking lots that still have snow or ice
  • Cables, wires, and other objects on the floor

Slip and fall accidents are usually preventable. In most cases, slips (and trips) can be prevented if the owners, managers, or maintenance workers regularly inspect the property, clean up spills, make timely repairs, or warn property visitors of known dangers. Our Cherry Hill slip and fall lawyers are skilled at showing that your fall was caused by negligence.

According to the National Floor Safety Institute, which references many different studies, falls are the leading cause of visits to the emergency room. More than 8 million people visit an ER due to a fall, and 12 percent of all falls are slips and falls.

When are Cherry Hill property owners liable for a slip, trip, and fall?

Slip, trip, and fall accidents are one type of premises liability claim. Property owners and operators owe a duty of care to invitees (people the owners invite on to their property) to ensure their property is safe from known and reasonably known dangers. Property owners are also liable to licensees (people who have a right to be on the property but aren’t there for the owner’s benefit) for risks or defects that the property owner knows of but fails to correct or repair. Property owners can be liable for their failure to warn both invitees and licensees of any known dangers.

At Ferrara & Gable, our Cherry Hill personal injury lawyers are skilled at showing that properties are unsafe, and that you sustained injuries because the owner/operator was negligent.

What types of injuries can occur when someone slips and falls?

Falls can cause serious, even fatal, injuries. Our slip and fall lawyers represent accident victims who suffer:

  • Traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and head trauma
  • Spinal cord damage including paralysis
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Traumatic amputation/loss of limb
  • Neck, shoulder, and back injuries, including herniated discs
  • Muscle, nerve, ligament, tendon, and tissue damage
  • Joint dislocations and fractures

What’s the value of my Cherry Hill slip and fall claim?

At Ferrara & Gable, we work to maximize the value of your slip and fall case by:

  • Showing every way that you endure physical pain and emotional suffering every day – and may do so for the rest of your life.
  • Reviewing the scope and severity of your injuries with your physicians – including all the medical care you’ll need, the cost of the care, and every way your life will be harder because of your injuries.
  • Working with you, your employers, and financial professionals, when necessary, to show the full extent of your wage and earning potential losses.
  • Seeking punitive damages, when applicable, for especially egregious or reckless actions or inactions by a property owner/operator.

We also show every way your quality of life is diminished, the extent of any scarring or disfigurement, and any loss of function of any body part.

In the event a fall proves fatal, you are entitled to seek additional damages for funeral and burial costs, the loss of your loved one’s financial support, and the personal damages you suffer because your loved one is no longer alive to share your life together. Ferrara & Gable can help you file a wrongful death lawsuit.

What should I do after I slip and fall?

Anyone who has a slip and fall accident should seek immediate medical help. Early diagnosis of your injuries helps ensure the strongest treatments.

You, or someone with you, should also:

  • Report the accident to the management of the property – but don’t admit fault.
  • Take photographs or videos of the area where you fell to help show why you fell.
  • Take photographs of yourself. Keep in mind that these photographs are meant to show your injuries, not how attractive you are. Contact our Cherry Hill slip and fall lawyers as soon as possible so we can answer your questions, investigate the accident, and help you towards both a financial and a medical recovery.
