New Jersey Slip and Fall Accident (Licensee)

What is a Licensee?
A licensee is a visitor who has permission to enter onto the property of another for a specific reason or business purpose. Some examples would include a pedestrian walking in front of a storefront, meter reader, mail carriers or delivery persons. Property owners can be held liable for injuries to a licensee if they know of a defective condition and fail to warn of the defect.

If you are involved in a slip/trip & fall accident as a licensee, you should:

  • Report the Accident – No matter where the slip, trip, and fall accident happens, make sure you report it to a manager, owner or landlord.
  • Get names of owners and managers of property.
  • Seek medical attention – If you’ve been hurt, it’s important to see a doctor so that your injuries can be properly documented.
  • Identify witnesses – Write down the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone in the vicinity where the incident occurred.
  • Take photos – take pictures of the scene immediately after the accident before conditions are changed as well any injuries.
  • Do not give statements – limit communication with property / store owners and do not give recorded statements to insurance adjusters.
  • Call an Attorney – When considering legal action, the best person on your side is an experienced attorney.
