Common Premises Liability Accidents in Camden, New Jersey
Premises liability is the area of law that covers accidents such as slip and falls, trip and falls and any other incidents that result in serious personal injuries. These types of accidents are foreseeable and, therefore, preventable. If you get hurt in a premises liability accident, it’s most likely because someone was negligent in doing their job or taking care of their property as required by law.
Property owners and managers have a responsibility to take steps to keep visitors safe. In a premises liability case, visitors can be a store’s employees or customers, service providers such as the mailman, cable guy or handyman, and guests at hotels, motels, restaurants, etc. Anyone who is welcomed to a property for one reason or another has a right to feel safe when they are there.
Owners and managers can ensure the safety of visitors in a number of ways: remove snow and ice, sweep leaves, fix broken staircases and handrails, maintain elevators and escalators, provide adequate lighting and security, repair potholes and sidewalk cracks, quickly clean up any spills or fallen items that may become a tripping hazard, etc.
Common Premises Liability Accidents in NJ include:
Trip or Slip & Falls are incredibly common across New Jersey, including Gloucester County and Monmouth County. These accidents can take place at commercial buildings (stores or offices), residences (private homes or rentals), or on public property (parks, streets, or public transportation). Premises can be dangerous for many reasons — faulty design, shoddy construction or building materials, poor maintenance, dangerous clutter, sidewalks in ill repair, inadequate lighting, slippery wet floors, uncleared ice and snow on walkways and parking lots, debris-strewn pathways, lack of a handrail on stairs, second stories or platforms, inadequate warning of a hazard and unsafe playground equipment. Dangerous premises can lead to slipping, falling, tripping, or having something hit you or fall on you.
Items Falling on You: In stores, especially in supermarkets and big-box stores where merchandise is often stacked high and precariously on shelves, items can fall on top of clients and cause serious head, neck and spinal injuries.
If the property owner or manager knew about, or should have reasonably known about, a problem (such as a “wet floor”, icy sidewalks, uneven pavement) but failed to fix it or adequately warn others, we will help you hold those negligent parties responsible for causing your injuries. We’ve worked tirelessly for countless families, like yours, throughout South Jersey, including Cherry Hill, Haddonfield, Marlton and Atlantic City.
