Slip and fall accidents in New Jersey

Picture a dimly lit stairway that a bucket of mop water has just been spilled on. There are also boxes and other pieces of debris that have been left in the stairwell. This is an extremely dangerous situation for someone who might be walking down the stairway. The person won't be able to see the obstacles ahead of him or her and a fatal or injurious trip and fall accident could easily result.

Can schools be held liable for a student's bullying?

In New Jersey in 2002, the first statute addressing bullying went into effect. In 2007, the state supreme court ruled in L.W. v. Toms River Regional Schools Board of Education that if a school district did not respond reasonably to harassment and bullying against a student by a student, then a lawsuit could be filed against the school district.
