About Chatham, New Jersey

Chatham, New Jersey often refers collectively to Chatham Borough and Chatham Township. Chatham is located 25 miles west of New York City, and is a suburban community located in Morris County. Listed as one of the best places to live in the state, Chatham is a family-friendly community with a vibrant downtown, wildlife preserves, a top-rated public school system, and easy access to New York City.

The Borough of Chatham covers less than 2.5 miles and is pedestrian-friendly, with a central business district and train station.

First settled by Europeans in 1710, the community was an important crossing for the Passaic River and was attractive for its location near a gap in the Watchung mountains. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Chatham Slip And Fall Accidents

FAQ: How much does it cost to hire a slip and fall accident lawyer?

At Blume Forte, our Chatham slip and fall accident lawyers work on a contingency basis. We will collect a fee if compensation is recovered from your claim.

Contact a Chatham slip and fall lawyer to set up a free consultation to discuss your case.

FAQ: What to do when a slip and fall accident happens to you?

Being injured in a slip and fall can be a sudden and scary accident. It’s important to take the proper steps after for your own health and to make sure the responsible party is held accountable. Here is an overview of what to do:

1. Always report the accident to the property owner or manager to document that it happened. You may also want to collect evidence by taking pictures of the scene.
2. If possible get medical attention immediately following the fall. The treatment you receive will vary because victims can suffer so many different types of injuries, but the sooner you seek help, the better. 
3. Speak with a slip and fall accident lawyer as soon as possible about your legal rights. Waiting even a matter of days could undermine your claim if the delay allows property owners to misplace or intentionally cover up evidence such as video surveillance footage. 

FAQ: What is the average slip and fall accident case worth?

Receiving compensation can help your family through problems such as missing income while being out of work or affording the medical care required for recovery. What you receive will ultimately be up to your damages. Your lawyer will look at all of the ways this injury has affected your life – financially and otherwise – to calculate your damages. It’s important to contact an experienced lawyer who will get you the settlement that accounts for every loss you have sustained because of the fall and injury.
