Premises Liability Claims: Holding Property Owners Accountable For Negligence

If you are injured on someone else's property — a business, a home, even a public place — you may have a premises liability claim against the owner or caretaker of the property.

You are not automatically entitled to compensation just because you suffered an injury. You must show that you were injured because of negligence. That's where our Mount Laurel trial lawyers come in. We know how to hold property owners responsible for failing in their safety obligations.

Property Owners Have A Duty To Your Safety

Under New Jersey law, owners of businesses, apartment buildings and other commercial property have a high duty to ensure their premises are safe for patrons and visitors. Homeowners and governmental entities have a similar legal obligation to provide a safe environment.

Examples of possible premises liability lawsuits include:

  • Injuries from construction activity
  • Slip-and-falls due to unsafe conditions
  • Drownings and swimming pool injuries
  • Injuries inflicted by bouncers or security staff
  • Dog bites and attacks
  • Rape, mugging or assault due to inadequate security
  • Elevator and escalator injuries
  • Injuries from fires and explosions

Our experienced premises liability lawyers investigate promptly to preserve evidence of the safety hazard and talk to any witnesses. We work to establish that the owner, landlord, building manager or property management company had knowledge of the danger or should have discovered it through regular upkeep, or that the owner was negligent in hiring or supervising employees who caused or contributed to injury.
