Dangerous Conditions And Premises Liability Lawsuits
To establish a claim for damages, you must be able to demonstrate that the owner of the property was negligent and that the negligence caused your accident. It is not enough to show that a floor was slippery and you fell and suffered injuries. Under New Jersey law, slip-and-fall claims depend on a showing that property owners failed take proper steps to prevent injury. An owner who knows that a water leak has left a floor slick has several methods to ensure injury prevention. Owners who ignore dangerous conditions or who remain ignorant beyond reason of such conditions can be found liable.
If you have suffered a serious fall, you understand how much damage a dangerous condition can cause. Slip, trip and fall cases may involve broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, permanent disability or even death. A property owner who does not bother to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition is gambling with the health and safety of others. When injuries do result, that property owner should be held liable for the damage.
