Bad things can happen when responsible parties fail to protect the public from avoidable hazards. Bones break, ligaments tear and hard impacts can damage soft tissues. Concussions and other head injuries are not uncommon when a fall leads to a "head bounce" on hard pavement.

Essex County Pothole Accident Attorney
Determining who is responsible for a fall on pavement depends on who owns the property. Conclusions aren't always immediately obvious.
For instance, if the pavement is adjacent to a commercial property, then the owner is likely to be liable for any damages a person sustains. By contrast, if the pavement is in a residential neighborhood, the city government is likely to owe damages.
If you were injured due to a pothole, crevasse, icy sidewalk, unsafe sidewalk or other pavement anomaly on New Jersey soil, Goldstein & Goldstein can help you determine the responsible parties and hold them accountable for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and inconvenience, among other damages.
