Premises Liability

New Jersey Premises Liability

Under premises liability law, owners of commercial properties where we shop, work and live are required by law to provide adequate security for their customers. This includes fixing or notifying you of any known hazards as well as securing the area from dangerous persons. If they fail to do this, then you and all other visitors to their properties are at risk of suffering serious injury.

The LAW OFFICES OF GREGG A. WILLIAMS can help you determine if you have been injured due to inadequate security or have a cause of action against a property owner. If you have suffered a security-related injury on another party’s property, then contact us at 732-514-6635 or click here.

What is premises liability?

A premises liability action, most commonly known as a “slip and fall” accident, is a claim brought against a negligent property owner. Most slip and fall accidents happen in commercial locations, such as grocery stores, gas stations, and office buildings, but they can also occur on private property.

Premises liability claims may also be made against property owners who fail to provide adequate security on the premises. Property owners generally have the responsibility of anticipating hazards and should be responsible for maintaining their premises in a safe condition. All too often, however, they clean up or fix the danger only after an injury occurs, thus removing the “evidence”.

Premises security claims can be difficult and it must be shown that the owners’ negligence caused the injury. In order to prove negligence, it must be determined that the owner knew, or should have known, that there was a dangerous condition and did not take action to correct it.
