I fell down stairs in New Jersey. Do I have a case?

 

A:

There is no way to be certain unless a qualified stairway accident lawyer reviews the facts to determine liability and assess damages.

Most New Jersey stairway accident cases boil down to being able to prove whether the owner or property management company had knowledge of the defect or should have had knowledge of the defect, and failed to warn of the defect.

The first step is proving that an actual defect existed and caused the accident. Pictures, video or eyewitness testimony will be important to establish that a defect caused the fall. Speculation or conjecture will not suffice to establish that a defect not only existed, but also caused the accident.

Many stairway accidents occur as a result of water accumulation, structural weakness, and more. Proper and prompt investigation is crucial to determine whether there is a valid case.
