Slip and Fall Attorneys Represent Injury Victims

New Jersey law firm helps those hurt while on the property of another

New Jersey law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business’s premises. If a business fails to exercise the legally required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Helfand & Associates, our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to help our clients seek full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Legal duty of care

In order for a business to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be shown to prove that a dangerous condition on the business premises caused your injury and that at least one of the following is true:

  • The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
  • The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
  • The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.

Depending on state law, a property owner or manager may owe a different standard of care to different classes of visitors such as business visitors or social guests. We help you understand your chances of recovery based on the specific facts of your case.

Knowledgeable consultants

Our attorneys consult with knowledgeable and respected experts while preparing your case. With the assistance of physicians, chiropractors and forensics engineers, our attorneys can pursue the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can understand the cause of the accident and the extent of your injuries.

Timely filing of your claim

By immediately consulting an attorney, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. The lawyers at Helfand & Associates thoroughly investigate every case and often visit the premises where the accident occurred to gather crucial evidence, photograph the accident scene and interview witnesses. With significant delay, you could forfeit your right to file a claim by missing the deadline set by New Jersey law.

They were able to settle the matter very quickly and helped me fit this into my tight schedule allowing me to leave to move abroad for my dissertation research on time without having to delay the trip because of the divorce. They also did all of it within my very tight budget. Thank you so much for your help and dedication to my legal matter!"  - AG
