Monmouth County NJ Premises Liability Lawyers

New Jersey enforces a legal obligation on commercial and residential property owners to ensure the safety and security of visitors, tenants, patrons, employees, and others who may pass through their premises. This realm of the law, known as premises liability, protects anyone who is present on the property for a legitimate purpose. Due to its broad application, premises liability law may be applied in cases involving construction accidents, slip-and-fall incidents, injuries that result from inadequate security, and many others. Under premises liability law, property owners must take reasonable measures to prevent hazardous conditions or to restore safety if circumstances present a potential danger. In essence, if the property owner fails to take reasonable measures to ensure that you can safely operate on their premises, for example, by removing snow or ice from walkways, then he or she may be held liable for damages that you incur as a result of your injuries. Damages can encompass many factors, including compensation for medical costs, lost wages, rehabilitative treatment, and pain and suffering. In order to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve, it is critical to enlist an experienced premises liability attorney who can aggressively advocate for your interests.
