Slip and Fall Accidents in New Jersey
There are many instances where victims are injured at homes and businesses due to the negligent and reckless actions of property owners. Unsafe conditions, malfunctioning tools and equipment, and various other circumstances can result in life-altering injuries. Being harmed in an accident on another person’s property can force a victim into their local hospital very quickly. In many cases, those harmed are unaware of what to do moving forward.
It is essential for homeowners to identify the risks on their property and proactively implement safety measures. For example, property owners with pools are required to block them off completely with fencing, have non-slip decking, adequate toy storage, and proper coverings. Dangerous animals need to be leashed or and properties should be posted to let others know of the potential dangers. Trampolines and even tree houses both present serious risks for guests. It is crucial for property owners to address problems quickly and secure their areas to prevent accidents from happening.
