New Jersey law requires property owners to keep their buildings and surrounding grounds in a reasonably safe condition. The injured person and the owner are likely to disagree about the precise meaning of “reasonably safe” in any particular situation, and your right to compensation will be affected by the specific facts: Were you a social guest? A commercial customer or a pedestrian walking past a business? A small child? A trespasser?
The legal question often comes down to whether the owner or the injured person was in a better position to recognize and avoid the risk of harm at the critical moment. If you were hurt by a falling object, such as a poorly secured advertising sign, you probably had no good opportunity to protect yourself. If you fell on a small patch of ice while talking on a cell phone, however, you probably should have watched where you were going.
No matter what the cause of your accident might have been, New Jersey personal injury lawyer Mark Cintron will be glad to listen to your story, review the facts of the case, and give you the advice you need.
Our law firm advises people about their rights in unsafe premises cases such as:
- Slip and fall accidents in retail stores
- Slip and fall accidents on unsafe sidewalks or pedestrian areas
- Injuries caused by unreasonable accumulations of ice or snow
- Injuries caused by defective building conditions
- Accidents caused by unmarked hazards or failure to warn
- Fall-down accidents caused by unleashed animals
- Swimming pool accidents and playground injuries, especially those involving children
- Injuries suffered in night clubs, theaters or other entertainment facilities due to inadequate security
If unsafe property conditions played a role in your injury accident, you have a potential premises liability claim against a private owner or even a local government. For sound advice about your rights, contact The Cintron Firm in New Brunswick, Montclair, West New York and Parsippany.
