New Jersey, like other states, requires property owners to maintain reasonably safe conditions in and around their property. For example, if a landlord failed to heed requests to repair a rickety stairway that eventually collapsed, injuring a tenant, that property owner can be held liable for failing to address a known safety hazard. Similarly, if construction is being done to a storefront, signs alerting patrons and passersby of potential hazards must be clearly displayed.
Although many of these safety requirements seem like common sense, accidents resulting from the negligence of property owners are a common occurrence.
Some other common premises liability issues include:
If you or a loved one suffered an injury due to a slip, trip, fall or another type of accident, don’t assume that you will be stuck paying your medical bills and other accident-related expenses. By working together, we can determine the full extent of your injuries, begin an investigation to determine whether the property owner failed to exercise proper care, and pursue compensation for your injuries. In addition to protecting yourself, it’s important to take action in a premises liability claim to ensure others don’t suffer the same fate.
