Slip and Fall
New Jersey is famous for its many malls. Believe it or not, New Jersey actually has more malls per square mile than any other state. Unfortunately, commerce can often lead to calamity, especially during the holiday season. And, it’s always someone’s holiday.
A crowded mall can easily become a dangerous mall. Because of this, a slip-and-fall injury at a mall is not an uncommon occurrence. If you’ve fallen at a mall, a restaurant, a bar, on an uneven or icy/snow-covered sidewalk or in a parking lot, or anywhere else, you need an experienced South Jersey slip-and-fall injury lawyer who will fight to get you the compensation you deserve. Ron Graziano, managing partner of Graziano & Flynn, P.C. of Cherry Hill, NJ, will fight on your behalf to get you compensated for your injuries.

Slip-and-fall claims (also known as trip-and-fall claims, fall-down claims, or premises-liability claims) are necessary because a slip-and-fall accident can happen to anyone at any time. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one million people are injured in slip-and-fall accidents each year in the U.S. The National Safety Council declared that slip-and-fall accidents are responsible for nearly nine million emergency room visits every year.
Ron Graziano has successfully represented many of these injured people in New Jersey. If you’ve been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, we understand what you are going through. Slip-and-falls can result in many bodily injuries, including:
- Sprained ankle or wrist
- Fractured bones
- Deep bruising
- Herniated or ruptured disc
- Neck and head injuries
These are just a few of the injuries and afflictions that a person can suffer because of a slip-and-fall. And the damages can be extensive. Even if you can afford the immediate medical expenses, the long-term medical care and rehabilitation costs will be daunting.
Additionally, lost wages can take a serious toll on your ability to get well financially, while lingering physical pain and emotional suffering can make matters worse. If you’ve been injured in a slip-and-fall, you need a knowledgeable attorney by your side, fighting for you every step of the way. You deserve compensation for your injuries and to cover medical bills and lost pay. You are suffering, and someone should be held accountable.Ron Graziano Will Hold Negligent Property Owners Responsible for Slip-And-Fall Injuries
A New Jersey property owner, operator, or manager has a legal duty to ensure that the premises are safe for visitors. Generally, a property owner is required to inspect the premises, fix hazardous conditions, make necessary repairs, and warn visitors about any potential risks. More specifically, a property owner’s legal duty arises in one of three situations:
- If the property owner knows of a dangerous condition on the premises, he or she must take necessary action to warn visitors of the dangerous condition and to protect against foreseeable injuries.
- If the property owner should have known about a dangerous condition on the premises, he or she had a legal obligation to warn visitors before they were injured.
- If the property owner caused an unsafe condition on the property, he or she is liable for any resulting injuries.
The law firm of Graziano & Flynn, P.C. will hold the negligent property owner responsible for your slip-and-fall injury. Negligent property owners are usually covered by insurance. A business tends to have general public liability insurance coverage, while a homeowner is typically covered for slip-and-fall accidents through homeowners insurance. Of course, the presence of insurance companies presents a unique obstacle when litigating a slip-and-fall claim; insurance companies are notorious for fighting tooth and nail against these kinds of claims.
Mr. Graziano won’t take “no” for an answer when dealing with insurance companies. He is experienced in combating insurance companies that try to avoid compensating injured parties. Our firm exclusively represents injured parties – never insurance companies – and we know exactly what it takes to successfully counter the insurance company’s defense against your claim.Contact an Experienced South Jersey Slip-and-Fall Injury Lawyer for a Free Consultation
