PATH platforms in New Jersey are known to be an area of chaos. With so many people hussling and bustling about, it’s easy for an accident to occur. For instance, say you’re running to reach your train. While rushing about, you don’t notice the large puddle of water on the ground. You slip and fall, injuring yourself.

Who is Responsible for Your PATH Slip and Fall Injury
Whenever there is a case of a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, the party responsible is generally the property owner. It is the owner’s legal responsibility to make sure the property is clear of any dangers for visitors. But in the case of a PATH station, who’s responsible is a little tricker to nail down.
Since the PATH is under the control of a government entity, this is the responsible party. But suing a government agency is much different than suing a private company or a person. Certain steps must be taken in order to successfully have a personal injury case against the government. You must first notify the proper agency of your accident 90 days after it happened then allow the agency to investigate the situation. The government will try to place the blame on you. And this is why it’s best to get a personal injury attorney before starting the process.
