Understanding NJ Premises Liability
Just like you can’t control other people, you can’t control what happens on their property. And unfortunately, not all property owners take steps to protect the welfare of customers and visitors. NJ premises liability law exists to protect people who have suffered slip and fall accidents, trips, or other injuries on the property of another individual.
If you or someone you love has been injured on someone else’s property due to negligence, don’t hesitate to contact the Law Office of Peter Briskin about what we can do to help.
How NJ Premises Liability Laws Work
New Jersey law entitles individuals who have been injured because of dangerous property conditions to seek “full and fair compensation.” Additionally, families who have lost a loved one because of a defect on the premises of another can seek damages. To protect your rights, be sure to speak with a premises liability lawyer before negotiating a settlement with a property owner or their insurance company.
For cases involving premises liability, victims may qualify for multiple types of compensation. Because many of these cases require short and long-term medical care, individuals may be able to recover money for medical expenses sustained both now and in the future, such as physical therapy and surgical intervention. Additionally, victims are eligible for financial damages due to the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
- Other losses related to the accident
Speaking to a lawyer is the best way to ensure you get everything you deserve.
Understanding Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall injuries are among the most common premises liability accidents. Occurring in a range of settings, including supermarkets, apartment buildings, workplaces, and hotels, these falls are often caused by rain, ice, and other factors affecting the surfaces that people use for walking. Victims can suffer a wide array of injuries, including:
- Joint problems, such as sprained ankles or twisted knees
- Broken bones
- Pinched nerves
- Disc bulging
- Skull fractures
Property owners who fail to post warnings about dangerous conditions may be liable for injuries occurring on the premises. Additionally, owners who fail to repair walkways or who do so incorrectly are at risk for lawsuits.
Other Types of Premises Liability Cases
Of course, property owners aren’t just liable when people suffer falls due to their negligence. Other types of premises liability cases deal with injuries suffered due to the following:
- Dog bites
- Swimming pools
- Leaks and flooding
- Toxic fumes
- Improper building security
Talking to an attorney is the best way to determine whether or not you have a premises liability case in the state of New Jersey.
