While owners have a duty to keep their property safe for tenants, customers, guests and visitors, when they fail to do so it can have very serious consequences for our lives.  Property owners can and should be held accountable for their negligence, especially when it comes to you and your family’s health.

Mt. Olive NJ Attorneys Answer “What is Premises Liability?”

A premises liability claim involves any kind of accident or injury caused by a property owner’s negligence.  Property owners have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment for those expected to use the property. Expectations can change depending on the type of property, for example a store will want to make sure it is safe for customers and employees, while a home will want to be safe for visitors or passerby legally using a walkway in front of the property.

When a property owner or manager does not live up to these expectations, and you are injured because of their negligence, then you will want to seek compensation for your injuries with a premises liability claim.  You have the legal right to be compensated for medical costs, both past and those expected in the future, as well as pain and suffering damages, lost income, and loss of ability to enjoy life.

Premises Liability Cases Parsippany, NJ – What are they?

Maintaining a property is a complicated, but necessary endeavor.  There are many different aspects of a given property that must be regularly checked, replaced, or fixed.  Failure to do so can and will cause injury, here are some examples of the many forms premises liability can take:

  • Missing or inoperable fire and smoke alarms
  • Unmarked fire exits
  • Improperly installed wiring
  • Deck and Porch collapses
  • Poorly repaired staircases
  • Malfunctioning escalators and malfunctioning elevators
  • Inadequate security such as lack of lights, broken locks, inadequate security personnel

All of these and many more can cause accident and serious injury.  Inadequate security has the potential to lead to violent crimes, and as such can at times also qualify as a premises liability.
