Testimonial from our client…
“We had a serious traffic accident in June 2016 while visiting New Jersey. The young lady who hit us was completely at fault, yet her insurance company repeatedly refused to contact us or return our multiple attempts to contact them. Our principal insurance company also had difficulty getting a response from them. After 6 months of intransigence, we felt it necessary to hire a lawyer in New Jersey to get at least some compensation for our extra expenses. Richard Rinaldo achieved a very successful settlement which is 10 times greater than we were hoping. We never could have received that settlement without him. We strongly recommend Richard Rinaldo for any legal issues.”

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere – at workplaces, malls, retail stores, restaurants and in the streets. There are many circumstances that cause slip and fall accidents.
Some Of The Causes Of Slip And Fall Accident
1. Wet and slippery floors with no visible signage.
2. Failing to warn people of sudden drops or rises in the floor or steps that can’t be seen.
3. Failing to fix broken railings, screens or other safety features
4. Poor lighting on walkways or entryways
5. Poor lighting in a parking lot
6. Poorly maintained sidewalks or streets
Whatever the reason for a slip and fall accident, never assume that you are at fault. When people suffer a serious injury because of a fall, they often assume that they were careless. This may be a very wrong assumption. For example, you are in a retail store. The retails store staff leaves merchandise in aisles or allows merchandise on shelves to stick out into the aisle. Then you fall or trip over the displays and excessive merchandise. It’s not fair to blame you for the very conditions that the retailer created.
