When You’ve Been Injured Due to Someone’s Negligence, Talk to a Skilled Camden County NJ Premises Liability Lawyer

You have every right to expect a property owner to provide a safe and secure environment when you set foot on their South Jersey property. Moreover, property owners should never be allowed to put concern for profits ahead of the safety of visitors. New Jersey lawmakers recognize this, which is why a property owner can potentially be held liable for any injury suffered by a visitor to the property. If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident on someone else’s property, it is important for you to speak with a premises liability lawyer as soon as possible so that you can be fully informed about your legal options.

The Law Offices of Craig A. Altman is a law firm that places a special emphasis on personal injury law. We have helped injured parties successfully file premises liability claims throughout South Jersey, including Camden County, Burlington County, and Cumberland County. It is our belief that wrongdoers need to be held accountable for their failures. That’s why our skilled attorneys will not rest until we have secured a positive outcome to your case.

Property Owners’ Duty of Care in Camden County, NJ

Property owners owe a duty of care to a number of individuals: customers; social guests; employees; and passersby. Additionally, if the property in question is a hotel, rental property, or condominium, the property owner owes a duty of care to tenants. The status of the visitor can also affect the duty of care owed by the property owner. For example, a property owner’s duty of care is highest with respect to individuals who have been explicitly invited onto the property. By contrast, the duty of care is probably lowest with respect to trespassers on the property.

Keep in mind that a property owner does not have to guarantee the safety of visitors; however, the property owner must take any and all reasonable steps to provide for the safety of visitors. The reasonableness of a property owner’s response to a dangerous condition will often be determined by the foreseeability of the dangerous condition.

Injuries in Premises Liability Cases in Burlington County

The injuries in a premises liability case can be severe. Many times, a person injured in a slip-and-fall accident, or any other type of accident on someone else’s property, requires costly medical treatment. Some of the most serious injuries include:

If you or a loved one has suffered any of these injuries, it is imperative that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can consult with safety experts and engineers to determine whether the property owner in your case took necessary measures to guard against injury. For example, a retail store owner who failed to provide security guards for a poorly lit parking lot might have failed to meet their duty of care as established by industry standards. An attorney can also inspect the property and conduct forensic testing to determine the likelihood of a property defect causing a serious injury.
