New Jersey Premises Liability Lawyers
It is taken for granted that owners of businesses, private homes and other properties will do their best to prevent and remove conditions which might cause harm to someone. Unfortunately, sometimes property owners and occupants are thoughtless or reckless in creating or failing to remedy these hazardous conditions. New Jersey law (and some Federal regulations) makes property owners and occupants legally responsible for remedying any type of hazardous condition on their premises, including:
- Uncleared ice or snow on walkways
- Dogs not confined by a fence or leash
- Toxic fumes or substances
- Signs or plant life that dangerously obscure drivers' views
- Discarded refrigerators, cars and other objects that could be "attractive nuisances" to children
- Vermin, unsafe structural conditions & criminal activity
- Violations of building codes
This responsibility extends to everyone who visits or passes the property for a legitimate purpose, including customers, social guests, employees and passers-by. Property owners and operators are legally responsible for removing unsafe conditions within a reasonable amount of time after they learned of them, or should have known of their existence. Visitors must also be properly warned of the dangers.
Property hazards can cause a variety of accidents, including car crashes, serious falls, dog attacks, toxic exposure and violent crimes. They can cause wrongful deaths as well as head and spinal injuries, broken bones, permanent scarring and other grave injuries.
If you were hurt because a property’s owner or operator failed to fulfill these duties, you have the right to hold them responsible for any serious injuries that result by pursuing a New Jersey hazardous conditions lawsuit. A New Jersey hazardous conditions lawsuit can help compensate you for these injuries and the pain and suffering they cause, as well as for your medical bills and other costs caused by the accident.
