Bloomfield, New Jersey, personal injury trial lawyer Alan J. Markman represents victims of slip and falls and other accidents in Essex County and nearby communities of Union County and Hudson County. He has the skill and investigative resources to prove the negligence:

  • Mopped or waxed floors without caution signs
  • Spills, leaks or slippery substances
  • Neglected snow and ice (especially black ice)
  • Tripping hazards (torn carpet, uneven sidewalks)
  • Falling merchandise or protruding objects
  • Broken steps, guardrails or handrails

Under New Jersey law, commercial property owners are liable to their business invitees for a slip and fall if they had notice (someone complained) or should have discovered or prevented the hazard through routine maintenance. A marble floor with no mats to catch melting snow is asking for trouble.

Property owners can argue contributory negligence (i.e., you should have watched where you were going), which may reduce your compensation. Trial lawyer Alan J. Markman and his investigators act quickly to record evidence before it is cleared away or repaired. We also document your injuries through photos and medical records to support your case.
