Premises Liability


Somerset County NJ Premises Liability Lawyer

Accident Injury Attorney in Somerville, New Jersey

Premises Liability
Under New Jersey law, owners and operators of both public and private property have a responsibility to maintain the safety of their premises for people who live, work, visit, patronize, and even pass by. This concept falls within the purview of premises liability, an area of personal injury law that involves injuries resulting from hazardous or defective conditions on another party’s property. When a property owner or operator fails to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of their premises, he or she is deemed negligent. When this negligence leads to an injury; for instance, a slip and fall, a dog attack, a robbery due to inadequate security, or even a child drowning in a swimming pool, the property owner can be held responsible. At The Law Office of Brian J. Levine, our firm is passionate about advocating for injured victims and their families, and we will work tirelessly to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Common Forms of Premises Liability in New Jersey

Accidents that provide grounds for premises liability claims can occur on public or private property. Some of the most common examples of premises liability incidents include:

In order to have grounds for a premises liability claim, there are some essential requirements that your case must fulfill. First and foremost, you must have suffered an injury. Second, that injury must have resulted from a dangerous or defective condition on another’s property (and we must provide evidence to substantiate the existence of such a condition). Third, the property owner or operator must have known or reasonably should have known that the dangerous condition existed. And lastly, the property owner or operator must have been negligent in failing to rectify or alleviate the hazard in a timely manner.

Our Approach to NJ Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability cases are highly nuanced and often involve more than one liable party. For example, commercial property owners, owners of private residences, property management companies, landlords, employers, and many others may have been negligent in their responsibilities to ensure the safety of the premises. Our firm conducts thorough investigations to assess any and all sources of negligence. We also work with renowned experts to chart the exact trajectory of events and pinpoint all evidence that may support your claim.
It is very common in premises liability cases for insurance companies to deny claims and to intimidate injured victims into accepting much smaller settlements than they deserve.  Whether at the negotiating table or in the courtroom, Mr. Levine will tenaciously advocate for your rights and work toward achieving maximum compensation for your medical expenses, loss of income, rehabilitative care, and pain and suffering.
