Walking along a sidewalk may seem like a harmless way to travel. However, if the sidewalk has been poorly installed or deteriorated over time, unseen hazards can result in a pedestrian tripping and falling, resulting in serious injuries. In a split second, the accident victim is in need of legal help in securing compensation for medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
The attorneys composing the legal team at the Forman & Cardonsky have extensive, hands-on experience in slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents. They are dedicated to maximizing the money injured New Jersey residents are entitled to while holding responsible parties accountable.
Whether you or a loved one suffered injuries, you must act quickly to protect your rights. Seeking medical help is paramount. Reporting the accident to the property owner documents the incident. Names and phone numbers of witnesses and your recollections help build a fact-based claim.
Tripping on a cement sidewalk often leads to landing on the rock-hard surface. A property owner may blame a contractor for poor installation of the sidewalk. The contractor may cite outside factors such as improper maintenance that affected the quality of their work, post-installation.
We conduct an in-depth investigation of the circumstances surrounding your accident to identify the responsible party and the extent of the negligence. If a contractor lacks the insurance coverage to pay the damages you deserve, we pursue a claim against the property owner as well.
Our lawyers are committed to obtaining full and fair compensation for your injuries.
