Recovering From An Accident On Public Property

Introducing Our Firm

There are many potential dangers on public property in Morristown. You could slip and fall on an icy storefront sidewalk, get struck by an object falling from a construction job site or even fall down the staircase at the library because numerous items littered the stairs. Any one of these events can cause you serious harm that prevents you from working or enjoying your normal activities.

Our attorneys at Hoyt & Hoyt, PC, will use their experience and knowledge to assist you in determining who is responsible, how the accident has affected you and how much compensation you may be able to claim.

Determining Liability

It is not always easy to determine who is at fault for an accident on public property. For example, say you slip on an icy sidewalk and suffer a broken arm as a result. The liable party may be the homeowner responsible for keeping that section of the sidewalk clear or it may be the government organization tasked with keeping the property safe and hazard-free.

Our lawyers will investigate to identify all parties associated with the property and what their responsibilities are. Then they will determine who is, in fact, liable for your injuries and assist you in filing your claim against those parties.

Assessing The Damage

Injuries incurred on public property vary and may include head injuries, brain trauma, broken limbs and torn ligaments. In addition to the immediate medical care your accident required, you may need to undergo further treatment such as surgery or physical therapy. Our lawyers can meet with your doctors to put together an assessment of the damage the accident has caused you. We will also look at any wages you may have lost as well as the mental, emotional and psychological effects of your injury.
