Our personal injury law team gets compensation for you after you’ve been injured on unsafe property. Property owners in New Jersey are required to keep their premises safe for the people who traffic them. Broken stairs, wet floors, cracked, icy sidewalks or parking lots and unmarked tripping hazards are just a few conditions that property owners are supposed to correct to prevent potential accidents or injuries. If you or a loved one have been injured due to this kind of negligence, someone is liable for your damages.
Anyone can slip and fall down at any given time. Accidents are just a part of life and we all need to be attentive to our surroundings. But we have to depend on property owners to help us avoid accidents in stores, parking garages and even at private events. A property owner here in New Jersey could be considered negligent if he or she created or failed to correct an unsafe condition, such as leaving a slippery floor after cleaning up a spill, failing to mark a known tripping hazard, leaving dangerous equipment out where a child can climb onto it or allowing unsafe behavior.
According to premises liability laws, owners and occupiers of property who allow other people to come onto their property are legally responsible for injuries that may happen there. The property owner must make sure the premises are safe by expediently repairing hazards or putting up warning signs about a hazard that hasn’t yet been repaired.
Our lawyers are New Jersey premises liability experts. If you or a loved one were hurt on someone’s property, you need legal experts who can manage your case properly. Although you don’t have to prove that you weren’t careless, New Jersey law says you must be able to prove the property owner’s liability for your slip-and-fall accident. We ask all the important questions right from the start and we build a strong case that will get you compensation.
An accident caused by someone’s negligence can cause you physical distress from the injury, emotional distress due to worry about how you will cope with the healing process and, certainly, financial hardship as you visit medical professionals who might tell you that you can’t work while you recover.
Contact us immediately if you or a loved one have been hurt due to a slip-and-fall accident or due to a preventable accident on someone’s property. It is imperative that we investigate the details surrounding your accident and preserve evidence before the property owner repairs it. Your entire case could stand on one little detail.
