Newark, NJ asked in Personal Injury and Elder Law for New Jersey

Q: Elderly mom fell walking into restaurant with a high step. The yellow warning is hard to see cause they keep door closed

Moms whole body hurts as it’s the next day. Don’t know if she has a case because the sign IS right on the high step as you walk into restaurant. The problem is that they keep the door closed which makes it hard to see the sign and react fast enough to notice and not fall since you have to look down to notice it. It’s also confusing because there is a first door to walk in but no step. It’s flat. Until you get to the 2nd door where my mom fell. You’d expect the same but the high step was a surprise.

English isn’t my first language, don’t know if I explained my well.

Thank you for your time in answering me

A: Since most accident/injury lawyers customarily will provide you a free initial consultation, my recommendation is that you contact a few of them in the area you live and sit down with them and discuss the specifics of your case and then decide how to proceed thereafter. Good luck.
